            Doncaster Rovers vs Newport County Preview, Tips & Stats

            Newport County make the trip to the Eco-Power Stadium to take on Doncaster Rovers this Saturday. Both sides are sitting in the bottom half of the League Two table, needing a win to help them look up the table rather than down towards the relegation zone.

            Doncaster currently sit 19th in League Two after 26 games. Rovers have eight wins, four draws and 14 losses, leaving them on 28 points, only four points above the relegation zone.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Newport have one win, one draw and three losses.

            Joe Ironside opened the scoring for Doncaster in the seventh minute, but they couldn’t hold on to the lead until halftime as Andy Cook and Tyler Smith both scored to give Bradford the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. Cook then completed his brace in the 85th minute to give Bradford the 3 - 1 win. Doncaster couldn’t get on the scoresheet against Notts County as Daniel Crowley, Macaulay Langstaff and Aaron Nemane all scored to give Notts County the 3 - 0 win.

            Callum Johnson gave Mansfield Town the lead in the first half, but Ironside bagged another goal for Doncaster early in the second half. Neither side could find another goal and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw. The one win came against Doncaster against MK Dons, next time out. Luke Molyneux, Ironside and Tommy Rowe all scored in the 3 - 0 win for Doncaster.

            The last time out for Doncaster was against Harrogate Town. Sam Folarin opened the scoring for Harrogate, but Rowe equalised within two minutes to make it 1 - 1 at halftime. James Daly and Abraham Odoh both scored in the second half to give Harrogate the 3 - 1 win.

            Newport sit just above Doncaster in 18th in League Two. In 26 games, Newport have eight wins, seven draws and 11 losses which leaves them on 31 points, six points from the top half and seven points above the relegation zone.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Newport have one win, three draws and one loss.

            Newport could only manage two shots on target against Wrexham as James Jones and Elliot Lee both scored in the second half to give Wrexham the 2 - 0 win. However, Newport bounced back against Forest Green Rovers. A Ryan Delaney own goal and a goal from Mathew Stevens gave Forest Green the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Following the red card to Forest Green’s Callum Graham Jones, a brace from Will Evans and a goal from Lewis Payne and Delaney gave Newport the 4 - 2 win.

            Crewe Alexandra took the lead early in the second half through Chris Long but Evans managed to equalise as both teams settled for the 1 - 1 draw. It was another 1 - 1 draw for Newport, this time against Sutton United. Shane McLoughlin opened the scoring for Newport but in the last minute of extra time, Tope Fadahunsi equalised for Sutton.

            The most recent outing for Newport was in the Third Round of the FA Cup against Eastleigh. George James Barbosa Langston was sent off in the first half for Eastleigh, but the goals didn’t come until the second half. James Clarke put Newport in the lead, but a Chris Maguire penalty levelled the game, forcing a replay.

            Doncaster and Newport have met 47 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1958. Newport have the better record in the fixture with 20 wins in comparison to Doncaster’s 16 wins, with the other 11 games ending in a share of the points.
