Confidence is soaring again among Sean O’Driscoll’s men following Tuesday night’s super 3-1 win at Derby County.

And it is just as well, according to the Doncaster Rovers boss, with a searching test at Elland Road against Leeds United on Saturday awaiting his team.

O’Driscoll said: “We know what the atmosphere will be like there and it is something that you can respond to in different ways.

“In fairness we have risen to the big occasion in the past and the last time we played there we came away with the points.

“But there has been very little between us in the four matches we’ve played against them while I’ve been here and they edged the game when they drew at the Keepmoat earlier in the season.”
