Doncaster v Posh: Match Preview

12 March 2015

Posh head to the Keepmoat Stadium to face Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm).

Peterborough United go in search of a fourth straight Sky Bet League One victory on Saturday as Dave Robertson's men travel to face promotion chasing Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium.

After victories over Bradford City, Sheffield United and Leyton Orient, Posh could find themselves in the play-off positions at the end of Saturday's round of matches.

Robertson is not getting too carried away though. 'People are saying how great it is that we have won three games in a row, but I will be happier if we make it four wins in a row. We are just taking each game as it comes, however cliched that sounds.

'We know that Doncaster are a good side, we know they are in the play-off positions, but we are focussed on ourselves and what we can do and where we can be. I guess you could call it a bit of a six-pointer based on where the teams are, but we need to make sure we play the game not the occasion.

'I am delighted and a proud man to be sitting here saying that we will be backed by over 2,000 Posh supporters on Saturday. It will be a cracking atmosphere and it is one that myself, my coaching staff and my players are very much looking forward to,' Robertson said.

Jack Baldwin and Jermaine Anderson remain sidelined due to injury, but Joe Newell has returned to training after a slight back injury. Marcus Maddison will serve the first of a three match ban after his appeal was rejected.

Doncaster Rovers have signed Rotherham United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris on a youth loan and he will be invovled against his former lcub. The 20-year-old joined the Millers from Oldham in September for a club record fee and has scored three goals in 14 league games for the Championship side.

Doncaster have reduced prices for the game to just £5 for adults as part of James Coppinger's scheduled 450th appearance for the club. Unfortunately he was forced off injured in the last fixture and remains a huge doubt for this weekends game.
