Rovers
Rovers come into the game having had the previous weekend off with their game with Reading at the Keepmoat falling foul of the weather.

Last time out away from home they secured their first draw of the season when they held play off chasing Hull City to a 0-0 draw.

It was also the first time this season that they had managed a clean sheet on their travels.

The draw at Hull brought to an end a run of six consecutive defeats on their travels.

So far this season on their travels, they have won two, drawn one and lost twelve.

Only Ipswich Town (34) have conceded more goals on their travels than Rovers (33) this season.

Only Nottingham Forest (22) have scored less goals than Rovers (23) this season, home and away.

We need to get more points away from home. The Hull game was a good start.

Palace do seem to like a draw. I think their form is a bit misleading.
