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)

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.

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

    • The lad only just turned 19 a few days ago. If he can get a good loan in january and also spend the whole of 22/23 at a decent club in League 1 or the Championship then it could really help his development.
    • Yep pretty sure you're right on that. I don't feel entirely comfortable either but I'm still a Dejan believer so I'm a little biased lol.
    • Great one DZ. I reckon we will go unchanged. Maybe Fry in for either Bamba or Jones  - if Wilder wants Dijk at RWB to be a bit more solid, but I reckon he'll go with Jones' pace. I also reckon it's too early for Payero to start, so he will be benched. Would be good to see him come off it with a strong cameo. Dejan will leave probably on a free and Coburn will go out on loan if there are any suiters. A half season in League 1 or 2 will do him good. I doubt we'll go undefeated. Stoke, Muff and Forest are a tougher run than we've had under Wilder so far. But a win at Stoke will surely breed a lot of confidence and really put us into the mix. However I think it'll be a 1-1 game. 
    • This season is probably as good as its going to get for Coburn. I'd imagine next season he'll face much stiffer competition for a place and he'll see much less game time. He's still young so it's no bad thing for him. Depending on who we bring in, he might even go out on loan. Might see Kavanagh get the odd cameo towards the end of the season if we're not threatening the play offs.
    • we dont have a decent keeper. daniels and lumley are both error prone. they both look nervous to me. maybe they are just not good enough at this level. both are still quite inexperienced, maybe one of them will mature into a decent keeper over the next year or two. i think lumley looks the better of the two from what i've seen so far.
