DRFC Early season stats

With Rovers enjoying a break due to the internationals it`s a good time to take a look at what we`ve been doing over the opening month`s of the season.

Rovers have currently played ten league games in the Championship and despite picking up just two points from their last four games; they have made their best start to a Championship season since their promotion in 2008.

2008/09 7 points - 23rd place
2009/10 10 points - 17th place
2010/11 13 points - 13th place

The stats so far this season also include their Carling Cup game with Accrington Stanley in August.

Discipline

Last season Rovers won the fair play league in the Championship and have started the season once again as one of the better disciplined sides in the league.

So far, the players have been shown 13 yellow cards between them with striker Billy Sharp leading the way with three cautions and now only two away from a one-match suspension.
Simon Gillett is the only player to see red after getting his marching orders on the opening day of the season at Preston North End.

Our best start to a season since getting promotion. A few more points and we would be close to the play offs. The division is wide open this season.
