For the second time in three seasons, Rovers will do battle with West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United in the Capital One Cup.

Today’s second round draw handed Doncaster a mouthwatering home draw against the Whites as reward for seeing off Rochdale on Tuesday night.

United ran out 2-1 winners at the Keepmoat Stadium at the same second round stage a season before last.

Leeds have won the last four meetings between these sides.

The last time these two sides met, in February 2012 at Elland Road, police had to prevent a tunnel bust-up escalating out of control following Leeds’ 3-2 victory - but the fracas still landed both clubs in hot water with the Football Association.

The tie will be played during the week commencing August 26.
