13th March 2012
After the game was postponed last month, Doncaster are attempting to fight their way out of relegation as they face up against promotion chasing Reading. A win for the Royals would take them second and joint on points with top, while a win for Donny would put them within one point of escaping the relegation zone.
Doncaster boss Dean Saunders - 'People will have given us no chance against Reading, as they did on Saturday against West Ham, but that suits us fine. We're four games unbeaten, which is the best run we have been on for 16 months, now we've got to win the couple of games in hand we have got, and get above the teams around us.'
Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'We've got to be right, we've got to be mentally right and ready - so we'll go there and do the best we possibly can. They've got real ability; real talent and they're putting some form together. They've been unfortunate to draw a few games when they should have won - but they try to pass, they try to play - and they've got individuals that can hurt you so we're well aware of that.'
Defender Shelton Martis faces a late fitness test after a knock picked up against West Ham on Saturday. Midfield duo Martin Woods and Brian Stock are both definitely out, as striker Habib Bamogo has a hamstring problem.
The on-loan West Ham striker had a fantastic debut for Donny with a superb 25-yard effort against Nottingham Forest last week and will be keen to show the home fans what he is made of.
Reading will be without winger Jimmy Kebe who still hasn't recovered from a knee problem. Defender Matt Connolly is out with an ankle injury, as well as Andy Griffin who is suffering with a hamstring injury.
The right-back has come back into the side through Matt Connolly's injury and will want to keep it his place in the side. Will be caused some problems by a good attacking side in Doncaster.
Reading 2 - 0 Doncaster
Church (52) Le Fondre (59)
Will be a tight game against a Doncaster side that seem to be finding some form. However, I think we will scratch it 2-1.
Doncaster - Derby (H) - Saturday 17th March - nPower Championship
Reading - Barnsley (A) - Saturday 17th March - nPower Championship
