Just four days separate us from the beginning of the 2013-14 Championship season. Sports Mole has been assessing the season ahead for the teams in the English second tier, and below it's the turn of newly-promoted Doncaster Rovers.

Sports Mole says: Rovers made it back to the Championship at the first time of asking by winning League One on an incredible final day that ultimately saw Brentford lose out. The scenes at Griffin Park will live long in the memory as Donny stole a last-gasp winner straight after the Bees had missed a penalty that shot them up to first from third. Stealing promotion away from Brentford has meant that Donny have been able to prise Harry Forrester from the London side. The man behind the second half of the season at the Keepmoat, Bryan Flynn, has since stepped down, allowing Dickov to take the reigns. The former striker has never managed at this level but does have three seasons of experience managing Oldham Athletic, who he resigned from earlier this year. How Dickov copes and handles life in the Championship could be the difference between safety and another stint in League One for the Yorkshire side.
Predicted finish: 21st
