PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v DONCASTER ROVERS

27 January 2017

All you need to know ahead of Town’s match against league leaders Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League Two tomorrow (3pm).


Town will be hoping to end their sequence of draws when Doncaster visit Huish Park.


The Glovers have drawn their last two matches away at Wycombe Wanderers and Blackpool, while their previous two home games in the league were goalless.


Darren Way’s side will play their first League Two match in Somerset in 2017 but were victorious in their last home outing.


Reading Under-23s were the visitors as Yeovil progressed to the Checkatrade Trophy quarter-finals with a 4-2 win.


Doncaster scored four the last time the two sides met back in August.


The Yorkshire club have been in the top three for the majority of the season and currently top the division.


Darren Ferguson’s men are unbeaten in seven, winning their last four, with their last three encounters ending 3-1.


Striker John Marquis is third top scorer in League Two with 15 so far this season, while veteran James Coppinger still remains a useful asset. 


Head-to-head

Town have won eight of their 15 meetings with Doncaster (D2 L5).


All but one of Yeovil’s wins over Donny have been by one goal.


Their last win over the Yorkshire outfit came in 2011 thanks to a solitary score from James Hayter.


Doncaster have won the last three matches between the sides, and won the reverse fixture 4-1.


Referee

Lee Swabey (Devon) will take charge of just his 8th game of the season tomorrow – his first match for two weeks.


Mr. Swabey has awarded 27 yellow and three red cards so far this campaign, and took charge of Town’s 4-1 win over MK Dons in the Checkatrade Trophy.


The Devon-based official will be assisted by Marvyn Amphlett (Worcestershire) and Kevin Howick (Oxfordshire) with Mark Russell (Somerset) acting as fourth official.
