You won’t catch anyone at Doncaster popping the champagne corks just yet.
There’s still work to be done in securing Championship football for another season - and the focus is on giving Birmingham City ‘the Blues’ this weekend.
But on Saturday Rovers hope to raise a collective toast to one of the club’s favourite sons who stands on the brink of joining a very exclusive band of red and white brothers.
And James Coppinger, if selected, will have every right to celebrate what has become a rare feat in the history of his adopted club - he’ll become just the fourth member of Rovers’ ‘400 Club’.
Coppinger will join former fans’ favourite Colin Douglas, wing half-turned-manager Fred Emery and inside forward Bert Tindill in clocking up a landmark 400 appearances for Doncaster in all competitions.
And the 33-year-old could yet give Douglas, Doncaster’s all time leading appearance maker (468), a run for his money after showing this season that there is still plenty of petrol left in his tank, in various positions.
Douglas is scheduled to be a guest of honour at the Keepmoat on Saturday to make a special pre-match presentation to Coppinger, while Rovers fans are planning a minute’s applause in the 26th minute - Coppinger’s squad number - to honour a player who cemented his position in the club’s folklore with ‘that’ goal against Brentford last year.
The matchday programme (pictured) will also be a shrine to one of the most naturally gifted players ever to play for the club.
But, when the first whistle blows, Coppinger will be completely focused on a game that could potentially edge Doncaster towards the brink of safety.
Fifty points remains the target. But if Rovers can pick up a minimum of three points from this week’s home double-header with Brum and Bolton, they will consider that to be almost job done. If they keep a certain Federico Macheda quiet, they’ll get three points on Coppinger’s big day alone.
