DRFC Portsmouth v Doncaster Match Preview

Doncaster Rovers are on the road against this weekend when they make the long trip to the south coast to face Portsmouth at Fratton Park.


Pompey have enjoyed an upturn in form winning six of their last nine games.

They have though, picked up just one point from their last two games.

In midweek leaders QPR held them to a home draw when the visitors scored a last minute penalty.

So far this season at home they have won four, drawn three and lost just the one from eight games.

Overall they have twenty two points from sixteen games and are currently in fourteenth place.

Home form: DLdWWWWD

Rovers managed a point in a 1-1 draw at Burnley in midweek after taking a first half lead.

In their last two away games, they have led at half time but have only come away with one point.

So far this season on their travels they have won two, drawn two and lost four of their eight games so far.

Overall they have twenty-three points from sixteen games and are currently in eleventh spot.

Away form: WLDLLWLD


The two clubs have only ever met on five occasions at Fratton park with Portsmouth winning four and one being drawn.

It will be the first time that the two sides have met since the 1982/83 season when Portsmouth won 2-1.

Rovers have only scored one goal in their previous five visits, with Portsmouth scoring twelve times.

You will do well to gain a point at FP. They are getting more supporters now as their form has shown good improvement and is always vocal.

Will be hard but they are missing Lawrence who seems to have been their danger man in recent weeks.

Actually looking forward to this game, one of the first Rovers games I can remember going to was the 2-0 Rovers win in 1979. It was on a Friday night and the win won Billy Bremner the manager of the month award. Joe Laidlaw who I think also played for Pompey scored one of the goals.
