Doncaster Rovers vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 11th August 2018, k.o. 3pm
Keepmoat Stadium
Referee: Carl Boyeson


Wanderers' first away game of the new Sky Bet League 1 season takes them to the scene of a landmark day in their recent history; one which kickstarted an historic run of form on their last visit in October 2016.

Gareth Ainsworth's men were 21st in League 2 and 2-1 down at half-time at the Keepmoat Stadium when a slight injury to Danny Rowe prompted a change. On came Adebayo Akinfenwa as a new formation and approach was devised and Wycombe didn't lose again in the league until February, laying down the foundation for the success which followed over the next 18 months.

This time they have a record to protect rather than create, being unbeaten on the road since December, but in Doncaster they face a buoyant outfit who got off to a flying start, winning 3-2 at Southend in Grant McCann's first game in charge.

Wycombe have confidence themselves though, and the positives of their display in the draw with Blackpool on day one have been built upon with the midweek additions of Bryn Morris and Jason McCarthy to the squad.

Team News
Dominic Gape could return after missing the opening day draw with a back problem, but Michael Harriman is suspended after receiving a red card against Blackpool. Scott Kashket, Nathan Tyson and Darius Charles continue to be assessed on their injuries.

Doncaster are without the injured Ali Crawford but were able to hang on to star striker John Marquis before the transfer deadline, so could make just the one enforced change from the side that won at Southend, with Crawford absent.

Man in the Middle
Carl Boyeson was the referee for THAT 4-3 win over Carlisle last season, dismissing Luke O'Nien for an alleged handball on the goal-line, before Marcus Bean snatched a last-gasp winner.

He showed exactly 100 yellow and 10 red cards in his 37 games in charge last season.

Kit
Wycombe will be in their regular first-choice strip.

Travel

POST CODE: DN4 5JW

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the westbound M40 to Junction 10 and follow A43 towards Northampton to pick up northbound M1. At Junction 32 take the eastbound M18 (sign posted Doncaster/Hull). Leave the M18 at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about 1½ miles away). Go past a retail park on your left and at the next traffic lights (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre). At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 164 (approx. journey time 2 hours 45 mins)

Recommended area for car parking
There are just 1,000 car parking spaces at the stadium that cost £5 per car. There are 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to match day. Alternatively, there a number of companies on the nearby industrial park that offer match day parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle. If you happen to arrive a couple of hours before kickoff then there is also some free street parking to be had in this area.

Using the train?
London North Eastern Railway operate a regular service out of London Kings Cross, fastest journey time 1h 35m. Doncaster Station is just less than two miles away and First Bus Service Number 56 runs to Lakeside Shopping Centre from Doncaster Interchange Bus station.  If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the walk (around 25-30 minutes) then as you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on this road (the A6182 Trafford Way) and you will eventually reach the stadium complex on your left.

Facilities for away fans
The capacity is 15,231 (all seated). Away fans are located in the One Call North Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 3,344 fans can be accommodated. The view of the playing action, leg room, and facilities are all good, although fans are set well back from the pitch. Note that cash is not accepted at the turnstiles. Away tickets can be purchased from the Club Doncaster Academy Reception in the North West corner of the Stadium.

Spare time on your hands?
With the stadium located on the outskirts of the town there are not many hostelries nearby. One option however is the “Lakeside”. This is a Beefeater outlet near Stadium Way. If you are in the town centre the “Cask Corner” comes recommended. This is in Cleveland Street which is about a 10-minute walk from the station. Coming recommended by DRFC is “The Leopard” in West St just a four-minute walk from the train station. This has received good reviews from away fans. Finally, the Belle Vue Bar is situated on the outside of the West Stand and welcomes visiting fans.

Match Reports

Report: Doncaster 3-0 Wycombe

Read the report from the defeat at the Keepmoat

11 August 2018

Wycombe suffered their first defeat of the season as they went down 3-0 at Doncaster Rovers.

After a goalless first 45, Rovers taught Wycombe a harsh lesson on life in League One as they clinically saw off Wanderers with goals through Mallik Wilks, Joe Wright and John Marquis.

Gareth Ainsworth made two changes to his starting XI from the opening day draw with Blackpool, with Bryn Morris coming in to make his debut, replacing the injured Paris Cowan-Hall and Sido Jombati in for the suspended Michael Harriman.

Under bright South Yorkshire sunshine, Doncaster started the game with a direct approach looking for the early ball to John Marquis in behind, forcing a couple of early corners in the process.

It was Wycombe who fashioned the game’s first opportunity however, as Adebayo Akinfenwa glanced a header wide from Joe Jacobson’s free-kick on the left with seven minutes played.

Mallik Wilks went down softly in the box with Marcus Bean alongside him with 13 minutes gone, he won nothing and Adam El-Abd and Sam Saunders were quick to tell him their opinion. That got tempers flaring and Andy Butler saw yellow soon after for a late tackle on Randell Williams.

Williams’ pace continued to cause problems and Ben Whiteman was next go in the referee’s book on 24 minutes after being forced to stop the Wanderers’ forward breaking after Matt Bloomfield won the ball back superbly in the middle of the park.

After getting the better of Jacobson in a 50/50 and then advancing into the box, Wilks looked to catch Ryan Allsop out at his near post with just under 30 minutes gone, but the Wycombe goalkeeper was equal to the danger.

Marquis played one out wide for Danny Andrew on 31’, the full-back let fly and was a couple of inches too high in finding the top corner, he would then try a curling effort moments later and drew a great save from Rocky.

Doncaster broke with intent after possession broke down for Wycombe midway in the Rovers half. With Wanderers stretched, Wilks cut in and played a inch-perfect pass to Marquis who checked on to his right foot and saw his shot blocked by Jombati going into the final ten minutes of the first half.

Morris received the ball in space 30-yards from goal and went to pick out the top-right corner, if it was just a little bit more to the right, it would have been a spectacular debut goal for the Shrewsbury loanee but Rovers keeper Marko Marosi managed to stop.

Some neat trickery from Williams saw him get a yard and cross to Akinfenwa, it was headed back out to Bean who found Saunders and the midfielder’s shot was deflected wide on the edge.

The resulting corner was played short and then crossed to the back-stick to Bloomfield who turned and shot where Williams was close to poking it over the line but the Marosi smothered the ball into his grasp.

Half-time: Doncaster 0-0 Wycombe

Two minutes after the restart Marquis almost wriggled free in the box; it broke to Tommy Rowe whose shot was closed down by Morris.

El-Abd would then see yellow for fouling Wilks on the right wing before Donny threatened again. A wicked ball in from the right bounced all the way across the face of goal, Rowe returned it to danger but Anthony Stewart headed clear.

55 minutes gone and there was a big chance for Wycombe. The Chairboys broke well, Bean fed Williams and as the keeper found himself in no-mans-land. Williams opted to cross to Bloomfield with the goal gaping, but his cross was too high.

The Blues were made to pay for that wasted chance as Doncaster broke forward and Wilks’ low shot found the net, possibly with the aid of a deflection on 56 minutes.

Wycombe tried to respond quickly as Williams stayed onside to win a corner down the left. The ball stayed alive and El-Abd of all people cracked a volley at goal, but it was blocked.

Saunders then went within a whisker of drawing Wanderers level on 64 minutes. JJ's cross was headed skywards, Williams kept it alive, Akinfenwa teed up Saunders who bent one narrowly wide with his left foot from the edge of the box.

There was a double change for the Chairboys with just over 20 minutes of the game remaining as Nick Freeman and Dominic Gape replaced Morris and Bean.

The referee whistle started to be blown more times than a ball was kicked as Stewart received a booking for a tackle on Wilks. The resulting free-kick on the edge would lead to Doncaster’s second on 79 minutes.

After the initial set-piece was denied, Rovers recycled the ball and Rowe threaded a fine ball into the box for Wright, who stayed onside to beat Allsop.

Wycombe went to throw the kitchen sink at it as Craig Mackail-Smith replaced Saunders. But despite having four forwards on the pitch, it went from bad to worse as Marquis sealed with just less than ten minutes to play. Substitute Matty Blair surged forward excellently dinked a pass through to Marquis, Allsop stopped his first shot but the rebound squirmed over the line.

Dominic Gape received a yellow card in the dying minutes for a late tackle as he stopped Rovers from breaking from a spell of Wycombe possession.

3-0 was how it would finish then as Wycombe now move on to Carabao Cup action at home to Northampton Town on Tuesday night (14/8).
