The clash between Doncaster Rovers and Fleetwood will not be shown on any television channel.

Can I stream Doncaster Rovers v Fleetwood Town?

Rovers’ clash with Fleetwood will be available to stream in the United Kingdom. Match passes cost £10 are available HERE.

This match was originally scheduled for an international weekend so streaming is permitted despite the 3pm Saturday kick off.

The EFL have confirmed that they will return to their pre-COVID-19 position on streaming games this season.

That means Rovers fans in the UK will not be able to stream games that take place between 2:45 and 5:15 on a Saturday afternoon.

Only fans overseas will be able to stream those games, provided that they have not been selected for international television broadcast in a territory that has an overseas broadcast partner.

However, the EFL have also confirmed that clubs will be able to offer a streaming service to UK supporters for any games that take place outside of that Saturday window.

That means that all midweek games not selected for TV can be streamed, as well as matches moved from their Saturday slot for non-TV purposes.

Games that take place on a bank holiday can be streamed, and all Papa John's Trophy games up until the semi-final can be streamed.

Are there any other ways I can follow Doncaster Rovers v Fleetwood Town?

The Doncaster Free Press will have full coverage on our website including live text commentary.

Are there any tickets available for Doncaster Rovers v Fleetwood Town?

Rovers fans can still purchase tickets for the League One clash with Fleetwood on the club’s website.

Is there any team news ahead of Doncaster Rovers v Fleetwood Town?

Omar Bogle (hamstring) and Dan Gardner (thigh) are doubts after being forced off at Morecambe but Aidan Barlow, who went off feeling the effects of his recent brush with Covid, should be available.

Ro-Shaun Williams, who returned to the bench last weekend, could be pressed into action and Tommy Rowe could move into midfield if Gardner is not fit.

Charlie Seaman and AJ Greaves have stepped up their rehabs but Tom Anderson, Ben Close, Jon Taylor, John Bostock, Cameron John and Fejiri Okenabirhie remain sidelined.

Possible: Jones, Knoyle, Olowu, Williams, Horton, Smith, Galbraith, Rowe, Barlow, Hiwula, Dodoo.
