'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DRFC 2010/11 Season Review - March

We now take a look back at March with Rovers injury crisis showing no sign of letting up.

Rovers start the month with a rearranged game at Derby County and come away with all three points.

Two goals from Billy Sharp and one from Joseph Mills secure the points and give Rovers a little relief in their relegation fight.

Rovers bring in young Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Ben Alnwick on a month`s loan, as back up to Gary Woods with Neil Sullivan still out injured.

Goals from Billy Sharp and Franck Moussa give Rovers an early 2-1 second half lead at Leeds but they eventually go down to a heavy 5-2 defeat.

Rovers are quickly back in midweek action and a last minute goal from James Hayter salvages a point in a 1-1 home draw with Coventry City.

Another point is picked up in their next game when they hold play off chasing Nottingham Forest to a 0-0 draw at the City Ground.

Striker Waide Fairhurst extends his loan at League Two side Hereford United for a second month.

Rovers are saddened to hear that former player Sean McDaid has been forced to retire at just 25 after suffering a knee injury for Carlisle United.

Ryan Burge joins Oxford United on loan after making just one substitute appearance since his arrival in January.

Also leaving is defender Byron Webster who joins Northampton Town on loan for a month.

Duo James Chambers and Paul Keegan are ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.

Rovers lost for the first time in three games when eventual champions Queens Park Rangers won 1-0 at the Keepmoat.

The result sees Rovers finish the month nineteenth place, nine points above the relegation zone.

Franck Moussa extends his loan stay at Rovers for a further month after impressing since joining from Leicester City.

Jason Euell also extends his loan until the end of the season from Blackpool.

Next week we will be looking back at April when Rovers move to within touching distance of safety and the club give the tickets for the Crystal Palace game away for free.

I honestly thought after the Derby win that safety was guaranteed.
