DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - February

Doncaster Rovers moved into February with an ever growing injury list and it showed no signs of slowing down as the team slipped closer to a relegation fight.

Rovers start the month with a much-needed three points against play off chasing Burnley. They win 1-0 at the Keepmoat thanks to a second half own goal.

Millwall inflict a cruel defeat on Rovers at the New Den when James O`Connor scores an own goal in injury time as they lose 1-0.

Brian Stock, who is out of contract at the end of the season, commits his future to Rovers by signing a new two and a half year deal.

Rovers injury hit squad is also boosted by the return to training of five senior players from injury.

Despite five players returning there are still six players on the sidelines.

Striker Waide Fairhurst joins League Two side Hereford United on an initial one-month loan deal.

Defender Dennis Souza extends his short-term loan until the end of the season.

Rovers suffer another defeat when Portsmouth leave the Keepmoat with a 2-0 win.

Ipswich Town come to the Keepmoat four days later and leave with all three points as they hammer Rovers 6-0.

Rovers sign Franck Moussa on a month`s loan from Leicester City and Jason Euell from Blackpool.

Swansea sweep aside Rovers in a 3-0 win at the Liberty Stadium.

Rovers travel to promotion chasing Norwich City with fourteen first team players on the injury list.

They produce an excellent performance and earn a point in a 1-1 draw thanks to an own goal.

Jason Euell scores his first goal for the club as they finish the month with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford.

The month finishes with Rovers in nineteenth place and now just eight points above the relegation places.

Next week we will be looking back at March when the injury crisis continues and Rovers continue to battle against relegation.

Fourteen players on the injury list. I can't ever remember it being anywhere near this in all the time I've followed football.
