History of the Doncaster Rovers v Colchester United fixture
Colchester United travel to take on Doncaster Rovers at Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The U's will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 12 and win only 4 of the 20 games.
The last time the two teams met at Doncaster Rovers was back in March 2006, over five years ago, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
