What the Papers Say (11th August 2014)

11 August 2014

A quick round up of reports from Rovers' 3-0 win over Yeovil Town.

The Star - "Every week we’ll be offering our opinion on who the best players from our teams were, over the weekend, and putting them into a Star XI.
Rob Jones (Doncaster Rovers) - Immense performance from the veteran defender on his return to the Rovers starting line up after recovering from injury.
Harry Forrester (Doncaster Rovers) - Recently tipped by Paul Dickov as being one to watch this season after an injury-ravaged last campaign, Forrester showed just why with a goal and an assist.
Curtis Main (Doncaster Rovers) - A great start to his Rovers campaign, with an early goal and for the entire match he hassled and harried Yeovil’s backline, causing problems throughout the game."

Doncaster Free Press - "When Paul Dickov's head hit the pillow on Friday night, following the long, arduous journey to Yeovil, he must of dreamt of a performance just like this. So bleary eyed fans, awake at the crack of dawn to welcome in the new season, might have been forgiven for rubbing their eyes in disbelief when Theo Robinson coolly lobbed Chris Weale to cap off the perfect opening day. Three nil Rovers. Even the most optimistic Rovers fan had not expected this. Doncaster were professional and efficient in the way they went about their business from the first whistle. They were clinical in front of goal, dominant in defence. They played with authority and confidence. After a nightmare summer, this was a dream start for Dickov and Doncaster."

Yorkshire Post - "DONCASTER ROVERS’ manager Paul Dickov hailed his side’s “fantastic start” after this emphatic win over Yeovil Town on Saturday. Rovers produced a commanding display in which Curtis Main gave them the lead against a disjointed Yeovil outfit after only eight minutes. He produced a fine finish after being sent clear by Harry Forrester. It was Forrester who effectively made certain of the win – Rovers’ first at Huish Park in six attempts – with another exemplary finish midway through the second half. Substitute Theo Robinson provided further gloss on with another breakaway goal deep into stoppage time."

Western Gazette - "Fellow relegation sufferers Doncaster taught Yeovil a lesson or two. They were well organised, first to every ball and did not look like a team that had suffered disappointment last season. Their stand out man was Harry Forrester, with one goal and one assist, his attacking threat is something that the Glovers need to recreate themselves."
