What the Papers Say

5 May 2015

A quick round up of match report's from Sunday's 5-2 derby win over Scunthorpe.

Sheffield Star - But they signed off in the best possible fashion by seeing off sloppy Scunthorpe, securing what was a seventh straight win against the Iron and scoring five at the Keepmoat for the first time since that unforgettable night against Southend in 2008.
Yes, there have been some dark moments during a season in which Doncaster have undeniably underachieved.
A 13th-place finish, given the talent in this squad, is unquestionably below par.
But maybe, just maybe, there are brighter days ahead.

Scunthorpe Telegraph - SCUNTHORPE United conceded five goals for the first time all season as their League One campaign ended in disappointing fashion with a 5-2 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.
The Iron, backed by a big travelling support at the Keepmoat Stadium, never recovered from a poor first-half display in which they had gone behind to an own goal by Niall Canavan after 10 minutes and trailed 3-0 at the break.

Yorkshire Post - IT IS a fair bet that if Doncaster Rovers could have cherry-picked opponents for their final match of the campaign, they would have opted for their neighbours from across the A18.
For Rovers supporters, the sight of Scunthorpe United, whether it be at Glanford Park or the Keepmoat Stadium, is a welcome one and how they needed this timely shot in the arm after a tortuous campaign at home.

And how we reported it….Nathan Tyson will take the headlines for his hat-trick, but it was a masterclass performance from Harry Forrester that contributed to a 5-2 victory over the Iron.
