DRFC Review of the 2010/11 season - October

DRFC Review of the 2010/11 season - October

Vital Doncaster takes a look back at October when twenty goals were scored in five eventful games during the month.

Rovers start the month with a 1-1 home draw with Nottingham Forest.

Dexter Blackstock gives Forest the lead and Adam Lockwood quickly cancels this out for Rovers but neither side can find a winner.

Waide Fairhurst joins League Two side Southend United on loan after seeing first team opportunities limited at the Keepmoat.

Billy Sharp returns to one of his former clubs and helps Rovers to a 3-1 win at Scunthorpe.

James O`Connor is also on target as Rovers enjoy a victory against their local rivals.

Rovers are once again suffering with a lengthy injury list and they bring in young defender Joseph Mills on loan from Southampton.

Derby County leave the Keepmoat with all three points as Rovers come from two goals behind to draw level, before eventually losing.

Rovers are two down after an hour but two goals in two minutes by Dean Shiels draw Rovers level.

All their hard work is undone when Kris Commons scores his second goal of the evening for Derby as they record their first Championship win over Rovers in five attempts.

The live BBC TV cameras are at the Keepmoat as Rovers entertain South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United.

Two goals in the first half by James Coppinger and Billy Sharp, against his former club earn Rovers all three points.

The win is marred by a hamstring injury to Billy Sharp who was ruled out for over a month.

Josh Payne signs for Oxford after a successful trial period at the Kassam Stadium.

The youngster had only signed for Rovers in the summer but departed after making just one appearance in the Carling Cup.

Rovers finish the month with an entertaining game at Reading.

Former Rovers defender Matt Mills gives Reading a first half lead but goals from James Hayter, Shelton Martis and Dean Shiels give Rovers a 3-1 lead.

Reading hit back to score three times in the final thirty minutes to record a 4-3 win.

A disappointing end to the month for Rovers that sees them end October in 15th place with nineteen points from fourteen games.

The Reading result is put into perspective, had they won at the Madejski they would have finished the month in the play off places.

Next week we will be looking back at November when James Hayter hits a purple patch in front of goal and a Premier League international striker joins Rovers on loan.

This month highlighted our defensive frailties. Losing Sharp didn't help but Hayter had a great spell.

I went to the Reading game when we threw away a 3-1 lead. I never felt confident, even at 3-1 ahead. I wish they had gone up as they must be Rovers biggest bogey side home and away.
