DRFC Saunders - Calamity moment cost us

DRFC Saunders - Calamity moment cost us

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders was left disappointed after seeing his side throw away a second half lead at Birmingham City.

Rovers looked like building on last weekend`s win over Southampton when they took the lead through Marc Antoine Fortune gave them the lead early in the second half.

The game changed just past the hour when keeper Carl Ikeme played a poor ball out of defence, which eventually saw Marlon King equalise.

King scored the winner with just two minutes remaining and Saunders was again left disappointed with defensive lapses that cost the side.

Speaking on Radio Sheffield, Saunders said, "I`m really disappointed, they didn`t look like scoring. We had just scored a good goal and then a calamity goal given, gave them a chance.
"We had the game won, and it is these mistakes that I keep talking about. You cannot give goals away like that especially against Premier League teams.
"It is individual errors, you have to make sure you don`t make mistakes, it is their job.
They worked their socks off, we had played well, and a couple of little incidents have cost us. There were lots of positives to take out of the game and we really should have won."

The defeat means Rovers will definitely go into the festive period in the relegation zone.

Rovers remain in 23rd place with bottom of the table, Coventry City losing at home against Hull City.

Nottingham Forest and Bristol City also lost and they remain four points above Rovers.
