Recent respective form guides

Doncaster Rovers's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Crystal Palace's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Eagles have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Doncaster Rvs. see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 55 points from their 44 games played so far, Crystal Palace see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 56 points from their 44 games played so far,
