DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - December

DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - December

We now move into December in what proved to be a frustrating month for Rovers.

The country was to be hit by the big freeze and the home South Yorkshire derby with Barnsley was the first game to fall foul of the weather after heavy snow.

James Hayter was rewarded for a great month in November by winning the Championship npower player of the month.

Rovers extend the loan of David Healy from Sunderland until the New Year.

Rovers are back in action at Leicester City. Billy Sharp gives Rovers the lead but a shocking penalty decision against Rovers on the stroke of half time changes the game.

Leicester hit five to condemn Rovers to their heaviest defeat since Sean O`Driscoll took charge.

Sean O`Driscoll is strongly linked with the vacant manager`s post at Sheffield United and is the bookies favourites.

Despite the freezing conditions, Rovers get their game on against Middlesbrough at the Keepmoat.

Goals by James Hayter and Brian Stock secure the points in a 2-1 win.

Rovers Boxing Day clash at Derby County is called off less than two hours before kick off after a power cut in one of the stands at Pride Park.

A frozen pitch at the Keepmoat sees Rovers lose their second fixture over the festive period at home to Ipswich Town.

Sean O`Driscoll ends the speculation linking him with the Sheffield United job by declaring himself out of the frame for the job.

The freezing conditions see Rovers play just twice from a possible five games during the month.

Rovers finish the year in fourteenth place, just four points outside the play offs and with a number of games in hand.

Next week we will be looking back at January when the injury crisis reaches alarming proportions.

Rovers were in half decent form and a lot of the games they lost to the weather I am sure they would have won, but when they were rearranged they lost.

The penalty at Leicester was an absolute joke and certainly changed the game. I have to agree about the games we lost to the weather. Rovers would have beaten Barnsley and Ipswich in December.
