Goal Statistics

Doncaster Rovers's defensive record is to be admired, Grant McCann's men having conceded 1 or less in 6 consecutive League Two outings. An underwhelming PG rating of 1.4 for Morecambe makes sense in this context.

Doncaster Rovers have been reliable in attack of late, scoring in 13 consecutive League Two games. Their PG of 1.5 against Morecambe on Saturday suggests they're likely to extend that run.
