With Southend,Scunthorpe and Yeovil sacking their managers this week and Port Vale in serious threat of administration,think we are lucky to have our manager who is doing a great job.3 points tonight and we'll be well on our way to safety.
We have played Doncaster 40 times, winning 17, losing 17 and 6 drawn, we had 6 straight defeats to them 8 games ago before a 1-3 away win on the 27th jan 18, but then they won our last match with them at home 0-4 last December. I am going for a 0-1 win v a team who has not won any in the last 8 matches.
First one I've been able to get to for ages. Last game I saw was the debacle against Wycombe at home since when it's been largely plain sailing. Doncaster away was my favourite match of last season - Ellis took that game by the scruff of the neck. Hoping for similarly positive vibes tonight and really looking forward to seeing our new(ish) signings for the first time.
Rovers make three changes to face Doncaster Rovers in tonight's Sky Bet League One fixture.
The trio of changes sees club captain Tom Lockyer return to the starting XI, as Gavin Reilly and Alex Jakubiak are recalled with Alfie Kilgour, Liam Sercombe and Tom Nichols all starting the game on the bench.
Also on the bench is Development Squad striker, Deon Moore.
