DRFC Doncaster v Leeds Head To Head

DRFC Doncaster v Leeds Head To Head

Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United meet at the Keepmoat on Friday night and we look back at the meetings at Doncaster over the years.

This will be the eleventh meeting at Doncaster with the home side winning two, Leeds four and there have been four draws.

It is the fourth meeting at the Keepmoat, Rovers are still looking for their first win, having lost 1-0 during the 2007/08 season, and when they met last season, it finished 0-0.
They have already met this season in the Carling Cup. James Hayter gave Rovers and early lead but two Ramon Nunez goals won the tie for Leeds.

The first ever meeting came during the 1947/48 season when Doncaster won a Second Division clash 3-0.

The next time the two met the shared eight goals in a 4-4 draw during the 1950/51 season.

Rovers won the next encounter the following season 2-0, their last success at home against Leeds.

Leeds had to wait until their sixth visit to Belle Vue before enjoying their first win, when they won 1-0 during the 1954/55 season.

Still can't work out how Leeds beat us in the cup in August. Rovers battered em for 30 minutes.
