Vital Doncaster looks back at the previous encounters between Doncaster Rovers and Ipswich Town at Belle Vue and the Keepmoat.

The two sides have only ever met on eight previous occasions at Doncaster with six of those coming this century.

Doncaster have won two, Ipswich three and there have been three draws.

In the 2004/05 season, they had a previous meeting in the League Cup. League One Rovers caused a Carling cup upset when they beat Championship side Ipswich 2-0 at Belle Vue thanks to goals from Ricky Ravenhill and Jermaine McSporran.

Shelton Martis scored the only goal of the game in front of the live Sky TV cameras, when the sides met in Rovers first season back in the Championship in 2008/09.

The two sides served up a six-goal thriller at the Keepmoat in the 2009/10 season. Rovers looked to be cruising to victory thanks to a goal from Waide Fairhurst with only twenty-four minutes remaining.

Joe Colbeck equalised before Martin Woods fired Rovers back into the lead.

Within five minutes, Ipswich looked like taking the points back to Anglia after goals from Tamas Priskin and Lee Martin.

Rovers earned a point with just six minutes remaining when Quinton Fortune fired home his only goal for the club.

In the 2010/11 season, there was once again six goals but this time Ipswich scored all six for their first ever win in Doncaster.

A Sam Hird own goal set Ipswich on their way and Colin Healy and Connor Wickham added to the scoreline before half time. Wickham scored twice more to complete his hat trick in the second half and another from Gareth McAuley inflicted Rovers heaviest ever defeat at the Keepmoat.

They met in the 2011/12 season and once again there were plenty of goals with Ipswich winning by the odd goal in five.

Tommy Smith and Ryan Stevenson gave the visitors an early two-goal lead before Fabian Robert scored his second goal in four games to give Rovers hope before half time.

Substitute Jason Scotland won and converted a penalty for Ipswich with just over ten minutes remaining before Habib Beye scored a late consolation for Rovers in stoppage time.

They last met in the 2013/14 season when Ipswich enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win thanks to goals from David McGoldrick (2) and Luke Chambers.
