WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

14 April 2014

A round up of local, regional and national reports from Saturday's game against Ipswich Town.

DONCASTER FREE PRESS: “Losing at a side chasing the top six may be somewhat of an expectation for a club still battling at the bottom but the disappointment of the defeat was still stark. Particularly so when a late, late equaliser for Millwall deflated Rovers’ safety cushion down to three points.
Not to read too much from the book of Dickov, but there were still positives to take from the defeat and enough to provide confidence Rovers will be able to get the single win that should meet the criteria for survival.”

YORKSHIRE POST: “Manager Paul Dickov was left fuming after his relegation-threatened team lost to play-off chasing Ipswich following a frantic finish.
The game came to life after a tight first half when, just a minute after the restart, Daryl Murphy headed in his 13th goal of the season.
Doncaster clawed their way back when Tyrone Mings’s clumsy foul on Mark Duffy allowed Chris Brown to calmly find the net from the penalty spot with seven minutes remaining.
There was still time for Mick McCarthy’s men to win it as Luke Chambers fired in just three minutes later, following an incident which had Dickov screaming that right-back, Gabriel Tamas had been fouled by Luke Hyam in the build-up.” 

EAST ANGLIA DAILY TIMES: “Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers believes he is growing into the role of right-back after his late winner against Doncaster at the weekend drew comparisons with Brazilian legend Carlos Alberto’s famous World Cup Final goal of 1970.”

DAILY STAR: “Matchwinner Luke Chambers is so determined to help Ipswich win promotion he is prepared to give away his Easter eggs.
Despite his love of chocolate he is determined to stay in tip-top condition for the Tractor Boys run in.
Chambers netted three minutes after Chris Brown had scored from the penalty spot to level Daryl Murphy's opener.
It was the second time this season that Chambers has found the net against Rovers after also scoring in the 3-0 win at the Keepmoat.
But Rovers were livid Chambers' goal was been allowed to stand after a foul by Luke Hyam in the build up.
"I felt we gave a good account of ourselves against an Ipswich side that are in form and battling for the play offs and were unfortunate with the winner being allowed," said [Rovers] skipper Paul Keegan.
"We stuck to our task as a unit and felt we deserved to be level."”
