They Think Its All Rovers… It is Now

Its been a while since we’ve had an excuse for that title, but finally the League Cup draw has provided us with one. Doncaster Rovers have been drawn at home to League One Tranmere Rovers in the first round of this year’s Carling Cup. Doncaster’s League Cup form hasn’t been that impressive since they returned to the second year, winning just one tie in that time and they will be hoping to avoid a repeat of last season’s competition when they fell at the hands of Accrington Stanley at the first round stage.
