Doncaster Rovers head to Watford in the Capital One Cup tonight with no fear, according to Paul Dickov.

Rovers have won three out of three, and are yet to concede a goal, on their travels this season.

They will face a much stiffer test against a Hornets side who have won three out of four and sit second in the Championship.

But Dickov says underdogs Doncaster can play without pressure at Vicarage Road this evening.

“We know it will be tough because they’re a good Championship team,” said Dickov, ahead of the second round tie.

“But the pressure’s off us a little bit, especially after winning on Saturday. We can go down there and enjoy it.”

Dickov is weighing up making changes for Rovers’ third successive midweek game.

He said: “We’ll assess the players before we make our mind up. There’s been a lot of games and there’s a lot of stiff bodies because a lot of them haven’t had a proper pre-season.

“But the one thing you want to do [as a player] when you win games or pick up results is play in the next one.

“We’ll have a think about it. We want to put a strong team out. You talk about cups and priorities, but it’s the next game so it’s our main priority to go down there and try and get a result.”
