Vital Doncaster looks at the form of both Doncaster and Crystal Palace ahead of the crucial Championship clash at the Keepmoat on Friday.


Rovers continue to edge closer to the relegation places after losing at Hull City 3-1 last time out.

In their last home game, they were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow strugglers Preston North End.

They have now gone seven home games with out a win, since beating Burnley 1-0 at the start of February.

Rovers have won just two of the eleven home games they have played in the Championship in 2011.

So far this season at home they have won seven, drawn seven and lost seven.

Rovers are currently two places above the relegation zone in 20th place, with 45 points from 42 games.

Ipswich L 0-6

Coventry D 1-1
Qpr L 0-1
