Recent respective form guides

Brentford's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Bees have scored 4, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Doncaster Rvs.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Rovers's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 9 goals for and 7 against.

Brentford are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 17 points from their 19 games thus far. Doncaster Rvs.'s 24 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.
