Vital Doncaster looks at the head to head record between Doncaster Rovers and Tranmere Rovers ahead of the Carling Cup clash at the Keepmoat on Tuesday night.

Doncaster have much the better record between the two clubs at Doncaster over the years. All the previous meetings have taken place at Belle Vue with Rovers winning 21 games, Tranmere 3 and 13 being drawn.

Despite having a far superior record over the years, Doncaster have struggled in recent meeting. They have failed to win any of the last seven meetings and have failed to score in five of the last six. In fact, six of the last seven have finished in draws

You have to go back to December 1980 for Rovers last win, when they won 1-0 over the Christmas period on their way to promotion from Division Four.

Doncaster enjoyed their best win during the 1930/31 season when they hit Tranmere for six. They have also scored six on one other occasion when they won 6-1 in the 1961/62 season

Tranmere`s best win came during the 1962/63 season when they won 4-1 at Belle Vue.

The two clubs have met on four previous occasions in cup competitions.

Three of them have come in the FA Cup with Rovers winning 3-0 in both 1963/64 and 1973/74. Tranmere won 4-1 in 1962/63 and they shared a 1-1 draw in the 1989/90 season in the Northern Area Final of the Associate Members Cup.
