Wolves, six points clear at the top of the Championship head to bottom club Doncaster Rovers on Saturday for what should be the away banker of the day.

If only life were that simple. Rovers might only have 18 points but 13 came at their new Keepmoat Stadium and when it comes to home defences they have the second best in the division.

In 11 games they have conceded seven goals but as their attack have managed just four at Keepmoat it does not need a PhD to work out what sort of game awaits Mick McCarthy’s team.

Wolves, with 23 goals from 11 away games are top scorers on the road and will probably need all the firepower at their disposal to break down Sean O’Driscoll’s strugglers.

Rovers will be missing key defender Matthew Mills, the former ManchesterCity centre-half and club record signing. He misses out after a red card at Crystal Palace last weekend. Also out is former Scottish U21 midfielder Martin Woods who picked up his fifth yellow.

Wolves should see the return of 13-goal Chris Iwelumo, overtaken as top league scorer by Sylvan Ebanks-Blake (14) in the two matches he missed with an ankle injury.

Matt Jarvis, out for 11 matches with a hamstring injury, returned for half an hour at QPR and had cameo roles at the end of the wins against Derby and Barnsley but could have to wait for a starting slot.
