Doncaster Rovers entertain League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon at the Keepmoat today.

Darren Ferguson feels that his side need to keep their energy levels high against a competitive Wimbledon who are fighting for survival.

“We were really poor down there, it was a strange performance. We were way off the mark and it was one of the poorest I felt in terms of what we’re about, it wasn’t anywhere near the energy we’re about, so we need to get that right,” Ferguson begun.

“I feel they’ve got good experience, Trotter and Abdu in the middle of the park, if it is them, they're very experienced players. Taylor up front, he’s one of the better strikers in the league, he’s a real handful. Forrester could play, we know all about him, he’s a good footballer and they’ve got good width in their team.

“Each teams gonna carry a threat and we’ve got to try and exploit the weaknesses but the good thing for us is we’re confident and know we’ve got to keep our standards up and making sure the mentalities right.”

Andy Butler had to watch Friday afternoons win from the stands as he narrowly missed out on a place in the team to Andy Boyle. Ferguson admits we may not see him return until the Gillingham game.

Alex Kiwomya was another noticeable absentee from the 2-1 win at Blackpool; the 21-year-old missed the victory through an illness but should come back into contention for Monday afternoon.

Wimbledon come to the Keepmoat with one of the worst away forms in the league as they collect on average 0.9 points-per-game away from home, while Rovers get 1.56 points-per-game at home.

Only 18 of 37 Dons goals scored this season have come away from home, which may be a relieve to know for Marko Marosi. At the other end of the pitch, they’ve conceded 25 of their 50 goals conceded in total this season away from home.

Rovers will want to bury memories of the last game as it was dubbed Rovers’ current worst game of the season after losing 2-0.

This will be the sides’ only second meeting ever since The Dons reformed as AFC Wimbledon in 2002.
