Doncaster Rovers fans heading for today’s crucial Championship clash at Yeovil might want to change their travel plans.

For Rovers are also taking on fictional football team Warbury in today’s edition of The Sun in the popular Striker cartoon strip.

According to the strip, Rovers have already beaten the side this season - and readers can see Doncaster striker putting Rovers 1-0 up with a header in today’s paper - although the player looks suspiciously like midfielder James Coppinger.

Later in the fictional game, defender Gabriel Tamas is seen blocking a Warbury shot on the line with his hand.
