Boro vs Doncaster (A)

Recommended Posts

Traveled up from Norwich forth game against wigan (to add to the frustration) and doing it again to Doncaster on Saturday. Hope to see a new striker by then and reckon we will have this 2-0

 

You still have not said if you are fully recovered after the road traffic accident you were involved with:)

While I have no wish to cast nasturtiums on Derpcaster Rovers, the two sides' respective form over the season, does suggest this should be an easy 3 points for the Hamsters.

 

The only flies in the ointment are that the hosts are on a mini-run of 3 games unbeaten, in which they beat Charlton (okay, no big deal) and also managed a 3-0 win against Wigan...something Boro were singularly unable to achieve. More worryingly, Boro have been unable to find the net in their last 2 games and are currently without any strikers worthy of the name...unless Kei Kamara is available.

 

If Doncaster scouts were taking notes at our match against Wigan, Boro could be in for another torrid time.

 

Of course, if we're going by stats alone, things look a lot rosier. The hosts have averaged less than a goal per game and share the 3rd worst defensive record with Bolton and Barnsley.

 

DONCASTER: W7 D7 L14 F26 A44 Pts 28 Pos 19th

 

BORO: W9 D10 L9 F41 A35 Pts 37 Pos 10th

 

 

Last 6 Games

 

DONCASTER: D L L W D W

 

BORO: W D W W L D

 

If Doncaster don't nullify our attacking midfielders, we could make hay. If they take a Wigan or Leicester type of approach, we may count ourselves lucky to come away from the Keepstoat with a point.

 

My Prediction: Doncaster 0 - 2 Boro (hoping our attack can rediscover its mojo)

Anyone fancy a brief drink after the game?

I'll be there, getting train from Leeds. Not sure what time I'll be there, depends how hanging I am from Friday.

 

I'd be game for a pint or two after the game, just drop me a PM so I know what's going on.

I'd be up for a drink also, provided the lads travelling with me want to also :p

It's funny seeing the Doncaster fans getting their knickers in a twist over what is clearly a bit of a laugh.

I think weasel deserves paying for this... Apparently he's written their pre match team talk :P

Evening Smoggies!

 

Donny fan in peace here. Three quick points. First one I thought the opening post was very funny and those Rovers fans who whinge about it obviously need a sense of humour transplant.

 

Second, I hope we win more than most Rovers fans on Saturday because my Father-in-law is a Boro fan, from Skelton, and we've lost against you lot that many times over last few years I can't bear his smug grin any more!

 

Third point, and a bit of a serious one this, the Viking Supporters Co-operative (independent Donny supporters trust) is raising money for the LJS Foundation (http://www.ljsfoundation.org.uk/).

As some of you may know, Billy Sharp lost his two day old son to Gastroschisis just a few days before Doncaster played Boro at the Keepmoat two seasons ago. He played that match, and scored a great opening goal (

), although Boro went on to win. We will be doing a bucket collection in your stand at half-time, and all donations would be greatly received.

 

Thanks for listening.

 

Up the Rovers! :D

    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
    • None at all, at a guess, if he's expecting a big contract.
