DRFC Doncaster v Shrewsbury - Stat Attack

Vital Doncaster looks at the form and stats ahead of the game between Doncaster Rovers and Shrewsbury Town at the Keepmoat on Saturday.

Rovers

Rovers have won just one of their five home games so far this season when they defeated Bury 2-1 in their first home game of the season.

In 2012 they have won just two of seventeen games played in the league at the Keepmoat.

They are yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season but have kept three in their five away games.

They have failed to keep a clean sheet at home since the game with Cardiff City in January, a run spanning fifteen games.

Midfielder David Cotterill has scored in each of Rovers last two games and he is joint top scorer at the club with Chris Brown, with both players scoring four times.

Rovers are currently in 11th place with 14 points from 9 games.

Shrewsbury
The Shrews come into the game without a win in three games.

They haven`t scored in 188 minutes of football since Marvin Morgan scored in the 2-2 draw at Hartlepool United.

Morgan is the clubs leading goalscorer this season having scored four times.

Shrewsbury are yet to win away from home having drawn three and lost two of their five away games in League One so far this season.

They are currently in 15th place with 10 points from 10 games.


General
The meeting at the Keepmoat on Saturday will be the first time the two sides have met since the 1997/98 season.

On that occasion, Rovers enjoyed one of only three home wins all season with a 1-0 victory.

The two clubs met in the FA Cup in three consecutive seasons between 1976 and 1978 with Shrewsbury winning through on all three occasions.

Shrewsbury have the slightly better record at Doncaster having won five of the twelve previous encounters. Doncaster have won three and there have been four draws.
