Thanks to Tony Grenall for taking part.

We last met in October when Leeds won 3-0 at the Keepmoat. Has much changed for Doncaster since then?

A major change at the Keepmoat has been the departure of financial backers Dick Watson and Terry Bramall, thereby making finances apparently tighter than usual. However, this hasn’t stopped the influx of loanees and free agents as the Willie McKay influence continues unabated.

What was your reaction to the sale of Billy Sharp in January?

Billy Sharp’s departure seemed inevitable but was a huge blow nonetheless.His influence as a goalscorer and talisman for players and fans alike cannot be underestimated,hard to see boots that big being filled in the near future.

What have you made of recent events at Elland Road? I.e. Grayson’s sacking & the fan protests against the board.

I have a great deal of sympathy for the Leeds fans against Mr Bates, for a club with expectations of Premier League Football, it’s hard to see that being achieved by selling top players. Simon Grayson seemed undermined and the job under Bates is something of a poisoned chalice.

Who should we be looking out for in your side on Saturday?

At the moment, El Hadji-Diouf is providing the main threat in an often weak Rovers attack and I can see him stepping up his game in a big Elland Road atmosphere. Keeper David Button, on loan from Spurs, has impressed and one to watch in the future.

If you could sign any current Leeds player for Doncaster, who would it be?

Luciano Becchio is a player I’ve liked during his time at Leeds. Now we’ve lost Billy Sharp, he’s certainly the type of player Rovers could benefit from.

Finally, what’s your prediction for the game?

The next few games are make or break for Rovers relegation fight and we’ve reached the point where a struggling Leeds is a team we have to beat. However, we’re hardly setting the world on fire so I’m going for a useful yet ultimately unsatisfying point.1-1.

    Sorry to be a broken record, but I hope Donny win, so there’s no chance of Bates being able to rationalise appointing Redfearn> The worst thing that could happen for the future is a big win for the Whites.

    PS I still feel terrible saying that.

    Warnock spotted at Thorp Arch according to BBC website. Amazing how many people know where it is seen as its stuck in the middle of f**king nowhere 15 mile away from ER

    Dont think there will be a great atmosphere at Elland Road tomorrow. Donny fans are always asleep and we are disgruntled so perhaps Diouf will not play well.

    Our future is fucked already with bates at the helm.
    Wanting us to lose tomorrow is …..well it’s something I could never wish.
