Thursday 24th March (7:45pm)
Doncaster Rovers Belles v Chelsea Ladies
FA WSL 1
The Belles return to top flight action for the first time in three years having won promotion last term. Though Glen Harris’ side were defeated in the FA Women’s Cup by the same opposition earlier this week, they will have learned valuable lessons against last season’s star-studded Champions.
Friday 25th March (3pm)
Doncaster Rugby League v York City Knights
Kingstone Press League 1
The Dons will be hoping to make Good Friday great as they undertake hostilities against local promotion rivals, York at the Keepmoat. Despite a setback in the Challenge Cup, Doncaster are flying and a match up with the Knights is the perfect tonic to whet the appetite. There isn’t much love lost between the pair as head coach Gary Thornton faces his former employers, while a host of former Dons players return to their old stamping ground.
Sunday 27th March (4pm)
England U20’s v Canada U20’s
International Youth Friendly
All eyes will be on red hot Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford who will make an appearance for what will be Keith Downing’s first game in charge of the Young Lions. Fresh from bagging the winner in the Manchester derby, there have been outside claims that the unstoppable teenager could be part of Roy Hodgson’s plans for Euro 2016. Familiar names to also feature will include Reece Burke, Harry Toffolo, James Maddison and Ashley Fletcher who have all played against Doncaster Rovers in League One this season.
Monday 28th March (3pm)
Doncaster Rovers v Blackpool
Sky Bet League One
Having played Colchester on Good Friday, Rovers will be hoping to go in to this massive game against Blackpool looking to complete a satisfying double over the Tangerines. Darren Ferguson's side won on the Fylde coast thanks to goals from Andy Williams and Aaron Taylor-Sinclair. If the performance levels and vocal atmopshere seen at the recent Peterborough game are repeated then that would go a long way to securing their status for another year.
