DRFC Doncaster v Reading Head To Head

DRFC Doncaster v Reading Head To Head

Vital Doncaster looks at the head to head record between Rovers and Reading ahead of Saturday`s game at the Keepmoat.

If ever a club can be called a bogey side then that certainly is the case with Reading, in eighteen encounters at Doncaster through the years, Rovers have won just two, Reading ten and six draws.

Rovers have lost the four encounters between the two sides at Doncaster and they have yet to taste victory in their five meetings home and away since promotion to the Championship.

You have to go back to the 1982/83 season for Rovers last home success and it is a game for anyone over the age of 35, who attended the game, can still fondly talk about.

Rovers won the encounter 7-5 with Ian Snodin scoring a hat trick for Rovers and a certain Kerry Dixon scoring four for the visitors.

When they met at the Keepmoat last season a late Billy Sharp penalty for Rovers wasn`t enough as they went down 2-1.

The two sides have already been involved in a seven-goal thriller at the Madejski this season. Rovers trailed early on through a goal from former Rovers favourite Matt Mills.

Rovers hit back through James Hayter, Shelton Martis and Dean Shiels to lead 3-1 inside the final thirty minutes.

Reading controversially got back into the game through an Ian Harte free kick after the assistant had clearly missed the ball going a good foot out of play in the build up. The miss by the assistant saw him demoted from officiating in Football League games for the remainder of the season.

It was to prove crucial and a late goal from Simon Church earned the home side all three points in a 4-3 win.
