DRFC Rovers aiming for ten in a row

Doncaster Rovers aim to make it ten scoring games in a row on Saturday when they entertain third placed Swansea City at the Keepmoat.

If Rovers can score, they will be the first side in the Championship this season to have scored in ten consecutive games, having not failed to find the net since losing 3-0 at QPR in September.

What could make the achievement even more special is the fact that they have been missing club record transfer and joint leading goalscorer Billy Sharp for the past four games.

Rovers had a problem scoring goals when they first came into the Championship during the 2008/09 season but now have a number of players in good goalscoring form.

Already twelve different players have found the back of the net this season with Billy Sharp and James Coppinger leading the way with six goals.

James Coppinger is enjoying a good season in front of the goal, the midfielder as already netted six times this season and as already equalled his season best in 2007/08.

James Hayter will be hoping to keep up his good form, the striker as scored in Rovers last four games and now as five for the season.

David Healy will also hope to keep up his good start in Rovers colours having netted in two of his three games since joining on loan from Sunderland.

Rovers will need to break through a Swansea defence that they have failed to breach in the last 301 minutes when the two sides have met at the Keepmoat.

Paul Heffernan was the last Rovers player to find the net against them in a 2-2 draw during the 2006/07 season.

Since then they have lost 4-0 in 2007/08 and the past two seasons have finished goalless.
