We take a look at the respective form of both Doncaster and Middlesbrough ahead of the clash at the Keepmoat on Friday night.
Rovers come into the game on the back of back to back defeats for the first time since September.
They have a good record at home this season, winning four, drawing four and losing just the one of their nine fixtures at the Keepmoat.
Rovers have only failed to score in one home game this season when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Leeds in September.
Last weekends 5-1 defeat at Leicester City was Rovers heaviest defeat since losing 5-0 at Bournemouth back in 2004.
They are currently in sixteenth position with twenty-seven points from twenty games.
Pre season favourites for promotion Middlesbrough have found the season difficult and they are already on their second manager of the season having relieved Gordon Strachan of the post and appointing Tony Mowbray in October.
Since Mowbray arrived at the Riverside, the team have continued to struggle and they have won just three of their ten games played.
They won for the first time in five games last time out when they defeated high-flying Cardiff 1-0 at home.
Their away form as been very poor and they have won one, drawn one and lost eight of their ten games.
So far they have only managed to score in three of their ten away games.
The win last weekend moved them one place above the relegation zone in twenty first place with twenty-one points from twenty-one games.
Away form: dLLLLLWLLLL
