Rovers Capital One Cup tie against rivals Leeds United to be shown LIVE on Sky Sports.

Doncaster Rovers will host Yorkshire rivals Leeds United in the first round of the Capital One Cup and the club can confirm that this game will be shown LIVE on Sky Sports.

The date of the fixture has also been confirmed for Thursday 13th August, 7.45pm kick off.

Less than 35 miles apart, this huge Yorkshire derby will see two former Manchester City team mates Paul Dickov and Uwe Rosler go head-to-head as managers.  

“It’s a fantastic tie, a local derby and bragging rights are at stake for both sets of supporters," Dickov said. 

"To be under floodlights brings that extra bit of spark to the tie, and to now have Sky here is fantastic.

“I’m looking forward to going head-to-head with Uwe who is an old friend of mine. He is a great guy and our lads even play in the same school team together.

“Myself and the lads hope the whole town gets behind us and helps fill this stadium for what should be a magnificent cup tie"

Paul Dickov's side last faced Leeds United at Elland Road in the 2013/14 Championship season, winning the match 2-1 with goals from David Cotterill and Billy Sharp.

Ticket details for the fixture will be announced in due course. Priority sale will be given to season ticket holders, alliance members and members before going on general sale.
