A brief round up of media reports from Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Notts County.

Yorkshire Post - DONCASTER Rovers fell to a Notts County side whose appetite for the win showed itself right from the start and the home side moved out of the relegation zone as a result of the outcome of this encounter.
Lacklustre Rovers, whose hopes of reaching the play-offs had already ended, fell behind after eight minutes to Notts County.

Sheffield Star - At this stage of the season, you are either involved in the football’s greater narrative or you are not.
On Saturday, Rovers had an opportunity to make their mark in the concluding chapter of the League One story by delivering a heartbreaking blow to Notts County’s survival hopes.
But they could barely muster anything of note to even get involved the simple narrative at Meadow Lane, nevermind the greater picture at the bottom of the table.

Nottingham Post - As Notts County's players headed back towards their dressing room, the roar which accompanied their departure felt as if soldiers were being waved off to battle.
Their war against relegation continues next weekend, but the brothers in arms which left Meadow Lane following this 2-1 victory look more than ready for their last date with destiny.
There has never been a better time to rediscover the fortitude which made Notts a potent force in the early stages of the season, especially with just one game of the campaign remaining.
And if they can produce a similar performance of vibrancy, determination and resilience at Gillingham next Sunday and come away with a win, the chances of avoiding League Two's clutches look promising.

Sky Sports - Ricardo Moniz admitted his heart was racing late on as Notts County almost let a 2-1 win slip through their fingers against Doncaster.
The Magpies were looking comfortable at Meadow Lane after goals in each half from Garry Thompson and Liam Noble.
But a 90th-minute penalty from Nathan Tyson, awarded after a foul on the Doncaster striker by Haydn Hollis, gave the visitors hope but the hosts held on.

How we reported it - Into added time and Hollis brought down Tyson in a sloppy challenge just inside the area. TYSON picked himself up to smash the penalty down the middle to claw a goal back 4 minutes into added time.
A frantic finish to the game was brought to an end by the referee; the Rovers players & manager applauded the away supporters and handed out their away shirts to a few lucky fans.
