The game will be Richie Wellens’ first competitive match as manager of Doncaster Rovers, after taking charge in May.

Ahead of Saturday’s fixture Doncaster Rovers’ Chief executive has a message for fans.

“As pre-season comes to a close, it is obvious to everyone that it has not been a smooth ride, with large parts of the squad also having to isolate in recent weeks or picking up injuries,” said Baldwin.

"It has not been ideal, but as we said a few weeks back, this season is about rebuilding and becoming Doncaster Rovers once more.

"It will take time and there will be ups and downs, but I am sure we will have more highs than lows this season. Not least the return of fans this weekend.

"As Richie gets set to mark his official return to Doncaster Rovers in a competitive match, I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing him well for the new season.

"In the short time since his arrival, he has been a complete breath of fresh air with his attitude and desire and his focus on ensuring his long-term objectives do not get side-tracked by short term challenges.”
