History of the Doncaster Rovers v Chesterfield fixture

Chesterfield face a trip to Doncaster Rovers at Earth Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 43 games played, Spireites have recorded 16 wins, and Doncaster Rvs. have come away with 17 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Doncaster Rovers may have lost only 1 of their last six home games, but the other 5 have resulted in drawn games. The Rovers's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Chesterfield's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Spireites have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Doncaster Rvs. find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 16 points from their 14 matches. Chesterfield see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League One, showing a record of 18 points from their 14 games played so far,
