Easter fixture moved to Good Friday.

Derby County’s trip to face Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium in April 2014 has been brought forward 24 hours.


The game was originally due to be played on Easter Saturday 19th April 2014, but it will now be played on Good Friday, 18th April with a 3pm kick-off, following a request from Doncaster.


The fixture amendment allows Steve McClaren’s men extra time for recovery and preparation, ahead of the Easter Monday game at home to Barnsley on 21st April (3:00pm kick-off).


The last time the two sides met at the Keepmoat, the Rams clinched all three points with a 2-1 win, thanks to former left-back Gareth Roberts's first and only goal for Derby.


The experienced defender doubled the Rams' advantage after Theo Robinson, now with Doncaster, had given the visitors an early lead with a lob over Chris Ikeme.
