Preview: Doncaster Rovers vs. Derby County

Sports Mole previews Good Friday's Championship match at the Keepmoat as Derby County travel to Doncaster Rovers.

Derby County will keep their slim hopes of being promoted automatically from the Championship alive if they win at relegation-threatened Doncaster Rovers on Good Friday.

Steve McClaren's side travel to the Keepmoat Stadium knowing that if they fail to win and Burnley defeat Blackpool, their hopes of automatic promotion are gone.

McClaren is likely to go with the same side that saw off Huddersfield Town last time out, with John Eustace possibly set for a return in midfield.

Donny, meanwhile, have lost their last three games and go into Friday's game just three points above the bottom three.

Paul Dickov has no new injury worries and could choose the same starting XI that lost out late at Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Derby have won the last three matches between these two, with the December reverse fixture a 3-1 victory for the Rams.
