2011/12 Season Preview: Doncaster Rovers

2011/12 Season Preview: Doncaster Rovers
Read what we at VitalWatford make of Donny's chances for the forthcoming season...

Gaffer: Sean O'Driscoll, and if Doncaster are the Arsenal of the Championship, he's their Arsene Wenger.

Continually beating the club's expectations of him, O'Driscoll has built a competitive squad playing excellent football on a shoestring budget.

Position 10/11: 21st - staying up was the target and Rovers achieved it, just.

In: Tommy Spurr (Sheffield Wednesday, 200k), Richard Naylor (Free Transfer), Kyle Bennett (Bury, tribunal) and Chris Brown (Free Transfer).

Out: Steve Brooker, Denis Souza, Wayne Thomas (all released) and Byron Webster (Northampton Town, free).

Star Man: Goal-laden forward Billy Sharp who was subject to a combined bid of £2.3m from Ipswich earlier in the summer.

Joined Rovers from Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United in 2010 after a successful loan spell and has scored 15 league goals in both his seasons at the Keepmoat. Boasts an overall strike rate of 0.46 goals a game, nearly one in two.

Best Business: The capture of left-back-cum-centre-back Tommy Spurr for just 200k is a steal.

The Sheffield Wednesday stalwart was solid during his time at Hillsborough and will slot back into Championship life seamlessly.

Prediction: Donny will surely be fighting relegation once more as they do not have the squad to do much else.
