What The Papers Say

21 January 2015

A glance through a variety of angles focussing on Rovers 0-0 draw with Notts County.

Yorkshire Post - Just when you thought the pantomime season was over, a thoroughly bizarre denouement provided the major talking point in a true theatre of the absurd at the Keepmoat Stadium.
A goalless spectacle came to life four minutes from time courtesy of a major faux pas from referee Richard Clark…
It all provided a madcap episode to an evening of frustration for Rovers, who made all the running, but could not propel themselves into the top six.

Doncaster Free Press - There are no prizes for being sixth in January. But for a Doncaster Rovers side who, by their own admission, have lacked self belief at times this season, it might have proven to be just the confidence boost they required, had they managed to find a way through a resilient Notts County team and leapfrogged up the League One table in spectacular style.
Instead, Rovers are tenth in the table.

Nottingham Post - GREG Abbott refused to let Kwame Thomas' controversial red card overshadow a terrific defensive performance as Notts County secured a 0-0 draw at Doncaster Rovers.
The Magpies recorded their first clean sheet  since November with a heroic display to secure a point at the Keepmoat Stadium.
But controversy reigned late on when referee Richard Clark showed a yellow card to Thomas for taking too long to walk off the pitch for a substitution, having forgotten he had already booked the forward.

Daily Mail - Daniels had already taken the field and had to be recalled to the bench and, in the subsequent arguments, County manager Shaun Derry was sent to the stands for protesting.
The 10-men visitors then had to withstand a late Doncaster onslaught but held on for a point against their fellow League One play-off contenders.
Derry's assistant Greg Abbott afterwards condemned the farcical end to the game: 'I've never seen a sending off like that.

And how we reported it….Doncaster Rovers were held to a goalless draw at the Keepmoat Stadium as Notts County clung on for a point to deny Paul Dickov’s men a second straight home win. Rovers dominated for much of the match, bossing the possession, but couldn’t make a breakthrough, in a game that saw Notts County’s Kwame Thomas shown a second yellow card for walking from the field of play too slowly when being substituted.
