Match Preview: Doncaster v Bolton

Wanderers are back in Mordor on Tuesday to face Donny Rovers

Dougie Freedman takes his band of let-down Larrys to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday in another meaningless Championship game as the season reaches its zenith.

This Doncaster Rover's 11th consecutive season in the Football League and their 5th season overall in the second tier following their promotion from League One in the 2012-13 season.

Managed by ex-Manchester City irritant extraordinaire Paul Dickov, Doncaster find themselves, in the lower reaches of the league table which comes as no surprise given their status as Championship minnows.

Doncaster have found it tough to maintain form this season, with it taking until the 34th and 35th fixtures of the season for them to gain their first set of back-to-back wins, beating Huddersfield Town and Watford at home 2-0 and 2-1 respectively. Amusingly, they did beat Wigan 3-0 though.

Tuesday is going to be only the 11th meeting between the two sides, with the first fixture coming back in 1904 when Bolton emerged victorious in a 2-0 home win.

It would be 80 years until the next meeting. Overall, Wanderers lead the way on six wins to Doncaster's three. David Cross and Walter White (not that one) lead the way on three goals apiece.

Earlier this season Bolton recorded a 3-0 home win, with goals from Joe Mason, Andre Moritz and Neil Danns, with Mason's goal coming on his Wanderers debut as we 'earned' only our second home win of the season. Thanks for that Dougie you genius.

Prediction

Meh. Who cares. Let's just get the season over with and move on.
