MATCH PREVIEW - DONCASTER ROVERS (A)

22 April 2022

BURTON Albion travel to South-Yorkshire for the club’s final away match of the 2021/22 campaign to take on Doncaster Rovers at the Eco-Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).

FORM GUIDE

The Brewers come into the game off the back of an impressive 2-0 home victory over promotion chasing Rotherham United on Tuesday. The win was also a fourth consecutive clean sheet Albion have kept in the league, having drawn the previous three games 0-0.

Doncaster welcome the Brewers after drawing their previous game 3-3 away at Shrewsbury last Monday night - coming from three goals down at the break to take a point with a last-minute equaliser. With Rovers currently 23rd in Sky Bet League One, anything other than a win for the home side will see them relegated to League Two for the first time since 2016/17.

The two sides share an identical record when it comes to competitive head-to-head fixtures with both sides earning four wins each and drawing the other four.

The last meeting between the two came in November 2021 in the reverse fixture at the Pirelli Stadium. The Brewers put on a dominant display and secured a 2-0 victory with goals from Tom O’Connor and Daniel Jebbison.
