The Whites knocked Rovers out of the competition at their Keepmoat ground in 2013, and also remain unbeaten in six matches in all at the stadium.

Goals from Scott Wootton, Matt Smith and Ross McCormack gave United a 3-1 success in the second round of the competition at Doncaster in August, 2013 and two years earlier at the same stage of the competition, a Ramon Nunez brace gave them a 2-1 win.

Leeds are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions at the Keepmoat, winning five, with Rovers having not beaten United on home soil since back in August, 1951.
