YOU get the feeling it won’t be dull at the KC Stadium on Saturday - even if the stats suggest otherwise.

Hull hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Doncaster over the years.

But when Rovers are in town you can at least guarantee goals, drama and entertainment - and I expect nothing less in this weekend’s big Yorkshire derby.

City have had a rough time at home this season, scoring just 15 times in 19 outings.

Yet somehow the Tigers find themselves just four points shy of the top six - thanks in no small measure to a defensive record only bettered by QPR and Swansea.

City have also been breached a miserly 13 times on their own patch, meaning goals have been in desperately short supply for the KC regulars.

But with Rovers in the kind of mood that they’re in at the moment - and Hull launching a late dash for the play-offs - it would take a brave man to predict a game not packed with plenty of goals and incident.
