Rovers are yet to win back-to-back games in the league this season and now would be a good time to start!

Darren Moore makes his first trip to the Eco-Power Stadium since ditching Rovers for the Owls almost a year ago.

His side are gaining momentum in the promotion race and had their feet up during the week after their home clash with Accrington Stanley on Wednesday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Can I stream Doncaster Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday?

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

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.
