Doncaster Rovers vs Hartlepool United match preview – Danny Schofield and co. are relishing the upcoming busy period

Doncaster have a cluster of games coming up, starting with the visit of Hartlepool United at the Keepmoat stadium this weekend.

Schofield and his players are looking to use these quick-fire games as a chance to push forward up the table, but are taking nothing for granted as Schofield expects a tough game against the League Two strugglers and had nothing but praise for the Hartlepool manager saying,

“Since the manger has come in, he’s first and foremost made them hard to beat, there very organised and have some very good players who could cause us problems in attack. But yeah, we need to be well prepared for whatever they can throw at us.”

Doncaster will be looking to bounce back at home this weekend from their heavy defeat to Mansfield, Rover’s who have only managed two wins from their last five league games and will see these cluster of games as chance to turn their fortunes around.

Two of those games are against teams in and around Doncaster with the visit of Tranmere Rovers the following Tuesday, before making the trip south to face sixth placed Swindon Town. Danny Schofield reiterated that the players have been working on certain areas in which he feels the team needs to improve if they are to be competitive at the top end of the table.

The last thing that Doncaster needs is more injuries during this period of games as Schofield said,

“With games coming you really want to utilise your squad, its going to be physically demanding but I believe the players can play Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday all the way through the season. Fatigue and tiredness is more of a mentality thing, so its my role to make sure the players are fit and healthy and ready to play football games.”

The game against Hartlepool on the 4th of February kicks off at 3pm and will not be available to watch on ifollow but there is there an audio pass offered by the club.
