Doncaster travel to high flying West Brom on Tuesday hoping to build on the point they gained at Reading.


West Brom

The Baggies went top for almost 24 hours on Saturday when they beat Plymouth Argyle at home 3-1.

They are still unbeaten this season, winning four games and drawing two.

At home they drew with Newcastle on the opening day 1-1 and have followed that up with wins over Ipswich and Plymouth.

Doncaster Rovers

Rovers drew their fourth game out of six on Saturday when they battled to a 0-0 draw at Reading.

Rovers have won one and lost one of the other two games including their only away defeat of the season at Middlesbrough 2-0.


It`s been 52 years since the two clubs last clashed in a FA Cup Third round replay at the Hawthorn`s, West Brom won the game 2-0.

It`s been over sixty years since their last league encounters, in the 1947/48 season Rovers enjoyed doing the double over Albion.

They have only ever met four times in the Midlands with West Brom winning two, Rovers one and one draw.
