Six defeats in their first seven league matches were enough to see Doncaster’s Brian O’Driscoll become the first managerial casualty in the Championship.
Three games further on and Rovers fans have been overjoyed to see their side climb from the bottom of the table to just outside the relegation places.
Since Dean Saunders has taken over the reins at the Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster have been a revitalised side, recording two victories and a draw, and are available at 39/20 to notch up another three points in Friday night’s Championship clash against Leeds.
Doncaster’s last game at home ended in a 1-1 draw against Hull and if punters fancy another stalemate, odds of 9/4 offer good value for this eventuality.
However, with a victory at the Keepmoat Stadium already under their belts this campaign in the Carling Cup, Leeds will travel north with every confidence they can repeat that success.
On that night, Leeds recorded a 2-1 victory thanks to a brace from Honduran winger Ramon Nunez.

In recent seasons, Leeds have been known for their scoring prowess, with the likes of Jermaine Beckford and Luciano Becchio banging in the goals.
This year, with Becchio out of form, Ross McCormack has led the line, scoring nine goals in all competitions so far.
Although goals have been easy to come by for the Elland Road side, they have been having a horrid time defensively.
Every league game that Leeds have competed in away from home has seen both sides find the back of the net, so 31/50 for both teams to score in the match looks a certainty.
One final bet that catches the eye is Leeds to be ahead at the interval, which is available at odds of 37/20.
Two of Leeds four away ties have seen them lead at the break, although on both occasions they have failed to leave with all three points.
If this alone does not entice bwin customers to back the visitors to be leading at half time, then the fact that Doncaster have been 1-0 down at the half-time whistle on four instances already this season should make the bet look even more appealing.
As a result, if current form continues, then the odds of 333/100 for Leeds to be winning 1-0 at the break may be worth backing.
