It's a straight shoot-out for automatic promotion in League 1 this weekend, with third-placed Brentford hosting Doncaster Rovers, who sit second.

The Bees trail Rovers by two points, so they need the victory, while a point would be enough for Brian Flynn's men to maintain the second automatic promotion place and return to the Championship just a year after relegation.

Here, we preview the big game with the help of a supporter from each club.



Name: Richard Baxter.

Club: Brentford.

Number of years as a supporter: Since 1999.

Favourite moment as a fan: There have been many stand-out moments from my time as a Brentford fan, but my favourite would have to be beating Sunderland 2-1 at home in the FA Cup 4th round in 2006. DJ Campbell scored both goals, the second with a cheeky little chip-and-run over Gary Breen's head to go through one-on-one with the 'keeper in the 89th minute. Unfortunately this put DJ in the shop window and he was sold to Birmingham City in the January transfer window, which some say ultimately cost us promotion that season.

How many games a season do you attend? I used to be a season ticket holder, however commitments and financial restrains over the last couple of seasons have not made that possible. I still try and go to as many home games as I can and try to do at least one or two away days a season.

Where do you sit? Braemer Road, B Block.

Doncaster Rovers

Name: Gaz Deanhall.

Club: Doncaster Rovers.

Number of years as a supporter: 20.

Favourite moment as a fan: There's a few; promotion back to The Football League in 2003, the Third Division triumph in 2004, the 2007 League Trophy Final and the 2008 League 1 Play-Off Final all stick out. Plenty of good times as a Doncaster Rovers fan.

How many games a season do you attend? Pretty much all of them. I've missed two this season.

Where do you sit? In the South Stand.



What happened in your last match?

RB: 1-1 draw with already-relegated Hartlepool, we came back from 1-0 down with a tidy turn and finish from Marcello Trotta.

GD: We lost 1-0 to Notts County, which promoted Bournemouth and set up this nervy promotion-decider with Brentford. It was a scrappy game that was won with a brilliant goal. We went close at the end but couldn't muster an equaliser.

Why is this game important?

RB: It couldn't get any bigger! Doncaster are currently second and we are third, this really is an end-of-season showdown. A win for Brentford and we are automatically promoted to the Championship, and draw or loss and Doncaster are promoted.

GD: The winner gets promoted - it's that simple.

How do you see this match going?

RB: It's going to be a tight game; Brentford have the best home record in the division, and Doncaster have the best away record. I expect a great game for the neutral, but a nerve-racking one for both sets of fans.

GD: I think it will be tight, but Brentford have to win the match and are in front of their home fans, so I think they'll come at us. We have a solid back line, though, so hopefully we can keep the Bees out and nick a goal.

Who should we keep our eye on?

RB: Clayton Donaldson has been a revelation this season - the first Brentford player to score more than 20 goals in a season since Lloyd Owusu in 2001/02. He was suspended for the Hartlepool game so expect him to be the danger man from the off.

GD: Rob Jones has been inspirational all season, and Billy Paynter and Iain Hume are both good players.

Any memories of previous encounters?

RB: The magnitude of this weekend's game is emphasized by the result at the Keepmoat Stadium earlier this season. Brentford were 1-0 up with only 15 minutes to go, Doncaster went on to win 2-1. Things could have been very different if we had managed to hold on to that win.

GD: Plenty, and all of them good. We beat them at home earlier in the season, with Billy Paynter scoring late on, and also beat them at their place in the FA Cup not so long ago.

Score prediction?

RB: 2-1 Brentford.

GD: 1-1 - a result that would promote us.
