Doncaster Rovers will be aiming to make it three league games unbeaten when they take on struggling Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday evening at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Donny were forced to settle for a point in their last game against Rochdale at the weekend, so they’ll be keen to get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities.
Bolton are currently sat bottom of the League One table, and are 17 points adrift of safety, as it looks as though it’ll only be a matter of time before their relegation is confirmed.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of their game against the Trotters, Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore issued his thoughts on Tuesday’s opponents, and isn’t underestimating the challenge the Keith Hill’s side will present.
“They’ve had a lot of change this season, but they’ve got an experienced manager and assistant manager there and they’ve got a lot of experienced players that know this level.”
Moore went on to outline Bolton’s attributes, and is expecting a tough test at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday evening.
“They’re energetic and they work hard for one another. They’re never out of games and they work extremely hard.
“We know it’s going to be a physically fit and experienced Bolton team here on Tuesday night and they’ll be coming here to get a result.”
A win for Moore’s side could see Doncaster move into the play-off positions if other results go their way, whereas Bolton will be keen to pick up a much-needed three points to keep their slim chances of survival in League One alive.

It’s certainly not going to be an easy game by any stretch of the imagination for Doncaster on Tuesday evening.
Bolton are a team that are really struggling at this moment in time, but they’ll be desperate to pick up three points in this game to aid their fight to survive in League One.
That could mean that there will be areas of the pitch that Doncaster can exploit in this one though, and Darren Moore’s side will be keen to pick up a win to help keep them in touch with the play-off chasing sides in the third tier standings.
I think Donny will run out comfortable winners in this one, as they look to keep their play-off hopes alive.
