Wanderers head to Doncaster on Tuesday night for their eagerly-anticipated re-arranged game.

From likely line-ups to key men and the referee, all you need to know can be found below.


Doncaster: Dieng, Haliday, Wright, Anderson, James, Whiteman, Taylor, Ramsey, Gomes, Sadlier, Cole

Wanderers: Matthews, Emmanuel, Delaney, Bryan, Fleming, Politic, Lowe, L Murphy, Hamilton, D Murphy, O’Grady


Darren Moore: Former defender whose big managerial break came at West Brom, where he managed between April 2018 and June 2019. The following month he was appointed by Doncaster to replace Grant McCann. Rovers currently sit eighth, three points outside the top six.

At the back: Tom Anderson – Former Burnley trainee who has found a settled home with Rovers. Good in the air and a leader at the back.

In the middle: Ben Whiteman – Rochdale-born box-to-box midfielder who has arguably been Donny’s most consistent player this season.

Up front: Keiron Sadlier – Irishman who tends to play out wide but leads the club’s scoring charts with 10 and their assists with six.


“I think they’re just games of football and you need to go in with the mindset of winning no matter if you’re home or away. I think we’ve been good away as well. Sometimes when we’ve played at home we haven’t been getting the decisions or things have not been going our way in terms of the bounce of the ball but away it seems to be going for us a bit more” – Ben Whiteman reckons Doncaster should be beating teams like Bolton if they want to be play-off contenders.

Christopher Sarginson: Staffordshire referee who has given out 65 yellow cards and one red in his 25 games this season. Wanderers have never won a game with him in charge – their last meeting being a 6-0 hammering away at Bristol City in March 2016.


Wanderers have won their last three meetings with Donny stretching back to 2007 when two goals from Adranik and one apiece from Kevin Davies and Idan Tal earned a 4-0 victory.

Neil Danns scored in each of Bolton’s last two games against Doncaster Rovers, which both came in the Championship during the 2013/14 campaign.

Doncaster haven’t beaten any Lancastrian opposition this season at the Keepmoat, losing to Blackpool and taking a point against Rochdale and Accrington.


Manchester United faced Doncaster Rovers on the official opening of the Keepmoat Stadium and won the game 2-0. Brazilian midfielder Anderson made his debut for the Reds.
