The presence of 1,000 Charlton fans in The Valley this afternoon will make a difference to the intensity of the game, says Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore: https://www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk/news/2020/september/moore-believes-fans-will-make-a-difference/
Moore said it will be a tough game for the visitors who have to improve their passing game and show greater fluidity.
Sky News had an item last night on the preparations for the game with extensive shots of The Valley and the reporter leaving through the turnstile. Lee Bowyer was interviewed, apparently from his gaff.
Doncaster Rivers finished 9th in League One last season and Four Four Two forecast a 8th place this season. They comment, 'Doncaster appeared capable of breaking into the promotion reckoning at times last season, only to be undone by inconsistency.'
Rovers were once known as the Butterscotch Men, but changed their name to The Vikings. The contributor of the fan file states: 'This season will be different to last because we won't have Kieran Sadler to bring one in from 20 yards in the absence of a real goalscorer up front. It could be a long season.' He forecasts a top half finish without troubling the play offs.
