Ticket News

Doncaster Rovers away ticket news

13 December 2018

United come into the game looking to bounce back from last week’s 2-0 home loss to Gillingham, and seeking to climb the table from their current 20th position.

Rovers were 4-0 victors at Bristol Rovers and sit just outside the play-off positions.

TEAM NEWS…

Manager Stuart McCall reported no fresh injury worries, and was delighted to confirm Matthew Lund has trained pain-free all week after initially worrying there was a problem with his knee that needed a scan earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Jordan Clarke (shoulder) and Funso Ojo (hamstring) have stepped up their returns to training but the game will come too soon.

Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) continue to miss out, while Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season.

PAST MEETINGS…

Our last game against Doncaster came in the Carabao Cup first round back in August, with the South Yorkshire side emerging 2-1 winners. Stephen Humphrys scored the Iron’s goal.
