Leeds face a trip to Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium this evening with recent history on their side – United winning four of the 10 previous games and the hosts winning just two.
The Yorkshire pair have actually met already this season, with Simon Grayson’s men beating their neighbours 2-1 at the Keepmoat in the Carling Cup, and they will be hoping for a similar result this time around now there are vital Championship points at stake.

Rovers’ poor home run has seen them win just one and draw two of the last six but they do look a different proposition now that Wales legend Dean Saunders has taken over from Sean O’Driscoll.
United will be looking to improve on their away record if they are to make a sustained push for a place in the top six, however, with two draws and two defeats so far .
Doncaster are hovering perilously above the relegation zone with eight points from 10 matches but they will be hoping that the dawn of a new era under Saunders will see them climb the table rapidly.
And the former Liverpool striker has challenged former England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland to use his loan move to Rovers to reignite his career.
The 30-year-old moved to South Yorkshire from Wigan this week and is set for his debut in the red and white tomorrow night.
Once heralded as England’s No.1 for many years to come, Kirkland has found himself out of the picture under Roberto Martinez at the DW Stadium but Saunders believes he can remind people of his talents during his time at Doncaster.
The action gets underway at 19:45 this evening and with Rovers enjoying a new lease of life under the Welsh manager, they are sure to give Leeds a decent contest in this Yorkshire derby. It could well be a high-scoring draw.
