DRFC Doncaster v Leeds Preview

Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United lock horns on Friday night, for the first time since meeting in the League One Play off final in 2008.


The Rovers are unbeaten in three games having won home games against Hull and Norwich and drawn at Watford.

In their only other home game this season, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Bristol City.

They are currently fourth in the table after six games with eleven points.

Home form this season: DWW

The Whites recent good run came to a shuddering halt on Tuesday night when they lost 5-2 at Barnsley.

In their other two away games this season they have won one (Watford 1-0) and drawn one (Nottingham Forest 1-1).
After six games, they have ten points and are currently in ninth place.

Away form this season: DWL


The two sides have only ever met on eight occasions at Doncaster with the home side winning two, Leeds three and three draws.

In their only previous encounter at the Keepmoat, Leeds won 1-0 thanks to a goal by Alan Sheehan.

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!
