Doncaster earned their second win of the season last weekend, against Gary Johnsons’ Cheltenham Town, and they look to strengthen that with a win when Yeovil Town visit the Keepmoat this Saturday.
One thing is for sure, and that is that, John Marquis, will be the first name on the team sheet, as he has not only just scored two in his last two games, but he has also provided the goals that have won us these matches too!
James Coppinger and Tommy Rowe, are two other players that are beginning to get exciting, because they seem to have developed a good relationship in midfield, and communicate well with each other, and the more matches they play together, the bigger the threat I think they’ll become.
Marko Marosi looks set for his third consecutive start for Rovers, as in his last two games, he’s kept two clean sheets, all be it, he hasn’t had too much to do, but he’s done his job when required, and with more match game experience, he will improve – hopefully! However, Marosi may lose his place if Darren Ferguson signs this ‘experienced’ goalkeeper before Saturday, as he’s mentioned in one of his previous interviews of late.
I think that for the first time in a while, that our starting 11 picks itself for once, but the only issue there could be is that, due to injures, we don’t have a very experienced bench for back-up, however if a youth player is needed to come on, then they might play with no pressure, and actually be just as good, as any other experienced player.
Yeovil, similar to Doncaster, have had an inconsistent start; losing two, drawing one and winning one. They’ve also scored exactly the same amount as goals as we have too, so it could be an exciting match to watch, however we’ve had the most shots in the whole EFL so far this year – so hopefully we can begin to convert those chances into more goals!
Doncaster have faced Yeovil Town, 14 times in the past 13 years, winning 4, but the four matches we have won, have been in more recent years, and infact the last time they came to the Keepmoat, we beat them 3-0, with goals from: Natahan Tyson, Dean Furman and Kyle Bennett; so who knows could we repeat that scoreline from early 2015?
Predicted lineup v Yeovil Town
Marosi; Lund, Butler, Wright, Evina; Blair, Rowe, Coppinger, Houghton; Marquis and Williams.
