Recent respective form guides

Wrexham's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Dragons have scored 9, a worringly large 17 have been leaked at the other end.

Doncaster Rvs.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The Rovers's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Wrexham are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 25 points from their 29 games thus far. Doncaster Rvs.'s 43 points from 29 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
