DRFC Rovers draw latest friendly

Doncaster Rovers continued their build up for the new championship season with a 0-0 draw at Non League side Quorn FC on Wednesday night.

Record signing Billy Sharp made his first start, as did Simon Gillett who as also recently joined the club.

O`Driscoll also once again included three trialists in the side.

Rovers had to be happy with a goalless draw against a spirited Quorn side played in heavy rain at times.

Quorn had an early chance to take the lead, Steve Perton`s shot being saved by Sullivan in the Rovers goal.

James Hayter had two chances to open the scoring for Rovers but failed to hit the target with either.

Billy Sharp also saw a couple of good chances close to half time just miss the target.

Once again, O`Driscoll used the game to give his squad a run out with seven changes being made at half time.

Waide Fairhurst had Rovers best opening at the start of the second half, once again though, his effort failed to hit the target.

Rovers best chance to take the lead came ten minutes into the second half, Martin Woods free kick could only be parried by the keeper and Robbie Clark`s headed rebounded away off the bar.

Woods also saw another free kick later in the game saved by the keeper as Rovers tried to make a breakthrough.

A good defensive performance by the hosts ensured the game finished all square.

Another good workout for Rovers, as the club prepare for the new championship season. They stay in the midlands this weekend when they travel to Solihull on Saturday, before travelling down to Devon for a week long tournament starting on Monday with a group game against Barnstaple.


Rovers (First half):
Sullivan, Logan, James O'Connor, Martis, Friend, Grandison, Stock, Gillett, Payne, Hayter, Sharp.

Rovers (Second half):
Woods, Lockwood, Martis (Friend, 62), Hird, Dumbuya, Grandison, Woods, Gillett (O'Kelly 76), Clark, Fairhurst, Hayter (Butler 85).

I try not to look into the pre season results too much, we are swapping and changing the side around. Lets just hope they are all ready for the opening day. More worried with the amount of players getting injured already, they really can't afford to miss pre season as it will take so much longer to get match fit.
