Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll is satisfied his side will hold their own with those tipped to challenge for promotion in the npower Championship.
Rovers take on Watford on Saturday and then face Norwich and Leeds in successive home matches.
O'Driscoll told Doncaster Free Press: "Norwich were outstanding last season and there is a Premier League structure to the club.
"They're one of the teams you wouldn't bet against being in the shake-up come the end of the season but then again you could say that about a lot of clubs.
"We're certainly among the clubs that could do well if we have a reasonable run with injuries and suspensions.
"But that brings mental pressure as well as the physical strain that the season puts on you."
