A round up of various media outlets after Saturday's 2-2 draw with Coventry City.

Sky Sports - “Coventry remain a point clear of Gillingham at the top of Sky Bet League 1 after both teams were held to 2-2 draws on Saturday afternoon.
The Sky Blues looked set for victory over Doncaster when John Fleck scored before the hour after goals from Adam Armstrong and Nathan Tyson had made it 1-1, but Tyson struck again 18 minutes from time to salvage a point for Rovers.”

Yorkshire Post - “Saturday’s test at leaders Coventry was arguably the biggest yet for Darren Ferguson. His side emerged from it with credit intact with a proficient performance yielding a healthy point at the high-fliers - and it could have been three on another day. Rovers are getting it together and the balance between youth and experience looks good and they are ending a difficult year in spritely fashion.”

Doncaster Free Press -  “If four wins from five matches was not enough evidence to suggest Rovers are on the up, Saturday’s performance at table-topping Coventry City should ensure little doubt remains.
Rovers were more than a match for the League One leaders who came into the game on a red hot streak of form and supremely confident.”

Coventry Telegraph - “Twice in front, the Sky Blues’ lead at the top of the table was trimmed to a single point as Rovers fought back for a Ricoh share.
And it was almost a complete disaster for Tony Mowbray’s men as Nathan Tyson hit the bar in injury time.”

And how we reported it – “On a hat-trick, Tyson picked up the ball and took a shot on the turn. As Charles-Cook was beaten, the visitors could only watch as it bounced back off the cross bar.”
