The Opposition

Rovers finished sixth in the Sky Bet League 1 table last season, only to be defeated by eventual promotion-winners Charlton Athletic over two legs in the Play-Off semi-final.

The Club were guided to last season’s Play-Off finish under former Manager Grant McCann, who has since left over the summer to take charge of Hull City.

McCann has been replaced by former Doncaster player Darren Moore, who took charge of West Bromwich Albion between 2018 and 2019 in his only other previous management role.

Moore has seen his side go through a mixed pre-season since taking charge at the Keepmoat Stadium, picking up a win against Gainsborough Trinity before a draw with Halifax Town and most recently a loss at Grimsby Town.

His current squad includes former Town Academy graduate Joe Wright, all-time Club record appearance holder James Coppinger and 2018/19 top scorer John Marquis.

Town have never won at Doncaster Rovers’ new home but were the first Club to play a competitive fixture at the Keepmoat Stadium back on New Year’s Day in 2007. The Terriers most recent visit to the South Yorkshire Stadium was in the 2014 Championship season.
