Of the two teams competing tomorrow at Oakwell, Doncaster Rovers hold the upper hand in the history books with 23 wins to Barnsley`s 21 and eighteen draws between them:

The fixture itself dates back to 1901 with the first meeting between the two teams ending in a 1-0 victory for the Reds at the Intake Ground.
The highest scoring game between the two teams was a 4-4 draw at Belle Vue in 1934.

The Reds biggest victory has been a three goal margin and has occurred four times, the most recent at Oakwell in 2008 when they came back from 1-0 down with 10 men to coast to a very satisfying 4-1 scoreline. Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Jon Macken and Iain Hume added to Stephen Foster`s second half equaliser.
