Gary McSheffrey’s men must once again bounce back from another heavy defeat last time out at Cheltenham Town.

They remain four points from safety in the battle for survival.

The Gills, who have shown signs of life following the appointment of Neil Harris as manager at the end of January, are one place and one point better off than Rovers having played one game less.

Can I stream Doncaster Rovers v Gillingham?

Rovers’ clash with Gillingham will not be available to stream in the United Kingdom.

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.
