Sports Mole looks ahead to the Championship meeting between Doncaster Rovers and high-flying Burnley on Tuesday.

Sean Dyche's Burnley will make it four league wins in a row if they go past Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat on Tuesday night.

The Clarets have been the surprise package of the Championship so far this term and sit second in the table, three points behind the talent-heavy Queens Park Rangers.

Dyche's front duo of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have each netted six times in the league to help the Clarets to their lofty position and they will again start at Donny.

One man who won't feature is Dean Marney, who picked up his fifth booking of the campaign in Saturday's win over Charlton, so is serving a one-match ban. David Edgar or Keith Treacy are likely to fill Marney's place in the starting XI.

Hosting Donny also enter the match on the back of a win after Saturday's narrow triumph at Yorkshire neighbours Wednesday, their first maximum for six games which took them up to 17th in the table.

Manchester United loanee Federico Macheda has scored Rovers's last three goals in just two games and he will again lead the line on Tuesday.

The last time these two sides met was 18 months ago when Burnley left with the points, thanks to goals from Josh McQuoid and Charlie Austin.
