During these two games the results wer 0-0 at the Keepmoat stadium and a 4 - 1 victory for the Hornets at Vicarage Road with Heroud Goulan being sent off for Doncaster. Doncasters danger man will be former Watford striker Theo Robinson. Robinson joined Rovers from Derby County in the summer and has scored 2 goals for his new club at the momen. Robinson came through the youth ranks at the Hornets and turned pro at the club. After three seasons with the Hornets he joined Huddersfield after three loan spells. Since then he has had spells at Milwall and Derby and was loaned out to Huddersfield towards the tail end of last season.
