After the results on Tuesday I expect a fired up Leeds side coming to the Keepmoat.

Same again on Friday please as Tuesday. Last time we met at the Keepmoat I can remember Rovers making loads of chances but couldn't score. I hope Sharp can start to repay some of his transfer fee on Friday, he's not scored from open play yet!
