A glance at the papers reflecting on Saturday's win over Rochdale.Doncaster Free Press – “Paul Dickov is delighted to have uncovered a gem which has helped his side to their best run of form so far this season.
Rovers have come from behind in their last two League One away games after switching to a diamond formation, helping them to a run of just one defeat in five.
And at Rochdale on Saturday, it produced some of Rovers’ best attacking play of the season.”
Sheffield Star - “Oh how quickly the story of a game of football can change.
For so, so long at Spotland on Saturday it was a tale of frustration for Rovers, where chances for glory were allowed to slip away.
But after frustration came the last act moment of triumph from an unlikely hero and the struggle and doubt which preceded it was swept away by celebration.”
Yorkshire Post - “Doncaster Rovers’ manager Paul Dickov lauded his team for overcoming “the worst possible start” to win with two late goals against 10-man Rochdale.
Former Barnsley midfielder Matty Done gave Rochdale the lead eight minutes in. Full-back Rhys Bennett chipped the ball over and Done nipped in unheeded by the visitors’ defence to plant home a diving header.
Rovers took time to settle but once they had gained a deserved equaliser, although they had to wait until the final minite [sic] before the break, they took charge.”
Manchester Evening News - “Keith Hill paid tribute to Doncaster after Dale's 3-1 defeat at Spotland - but was also left questioning some of the decisions from referee Jeremy Simpson.
Hill's main bone of contention was the award of a corner after Harry Forrester fired well wide of the target. That led to Donny's crucial second goal and broke 10-man Dale's resistance.”
