25 July 2021

The goals and chances from Rovers defeat to Newcastle United in pre-season.

Rovers fans were rewarded with entertaining football on their returned to the Keepmoat Stadium as Rovers were narrowly edged out by Premier League Newcastle United 3-2.

The visitors took an early lead when Ryan Fraser fired in from outside the box, and doubled their lead with 24 minutes when Sean Longstaff got on the end of a delightful ball across the box.

Rovers hit back quickly though with Tommy Rowe tapping home from close range when the visiting keeper failed to hold a deflected shot.

Callum Wilson extended the lead again just after half time and a late header from Omar Bogle made it 3-2.
