DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - January

DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - January

We continue our look back on last season and Rovers move into the new year with a decent chance of a push for the play offs. Unfortunately the biggest injury list in football history starts to grow by the game.

Rovers start the year with a comprehensive with over near neighbours Scunthorpe United at the Keepmoat.

Rovers win 3-0, thanks to goals from Billy Sharp, James Hayter and Joseph Mills.

Billy Sharp scores twice against his former club Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

It looks to be enough to earn Rovers all three points but two very late goals from the home side earn them a point in a 2-2 draw.

Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers are the visitors in the third round of the FA Cup.

Rovers look like they could produce a shock when they lead 2-1 thanks to goals from Billy Sharp and James Hayter.

Stephen Hunt earns Wolves a replay with an equaliser in the second half.

The winners earn a home game with Stoke City in the fourth round after the draw takes place the following day.

Rovers make their first signing in the January transfer window when Matt Kilgallon joins on loan for the rest of the season from Sunderland.

The club releases Simon Whaley and Robbie Clarke.

The injury list starts to grow with Brian Stock, Mustapha Dumbuya, Wayne Thomas and Shelton Martis all on the sidelines.

Bogey side Reading continue to have the voodoo sign over Rovers with a 3-0 win at the Keepmoat.

Rovers bring in midfielder Paul Keegan from Irish side Bohemians for the remainder of the season.

Wolves inflict a 5-0 hammering on Rovers in their FA Cup replay at Molineux.

Billy Sharp again scores twice for Rovers at Ipswich but come away with nothing in a 3-2 defeat.

Rovers lose their rearranged home game with Barnsley 2-0 and end a poor month in sixteenth place.

More worrying is the injury list, with eight players now sidelined.

The transfer window closes with Rovers bringing in youngster Ryan Burge on a short-term contract and Joseph Mills extends his loan until the end of the season.

Next week we will be looking back at February when the injury list reaches fourteen players and the side slip nearer to a relegation battle.

Full of hope at the start of the year but was quickly getting worried with injuries and a few results.
