DRFC Ferguson - Credit To The Players For Keeping On Going

Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson was happy with his sides battling qualities as they scrambled a late point in a 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic.

Matty Blair equalised in the fourth minute of added time as Doncaster snatched a point in a game they were often second best.

Promotion chasing Charlton looked to be heading for another three points thanks to a first half goal from Patrick Bauer.

The Addicks looked to be heading for another three points with only goalkeeper Ian Lawlor and a last-ditch tackle from defender Tom Anderson keeping Doncaster in the game.

Blair then pounced to head home in the fourth minute of added time to snatch another point for Doncaster, the third time they have scored an injury time equaliser in 2018 and Ferguson was happy with how his players continued to battle.

"Credit must go to the players because they kept going, it`s a good habit to have, getting something out of a game, Matty Blair has popped up in the last minute and it shows great character for the players to not know that they`re beat," Ferguson told the
Doncaster Rovers official website.

"It was pleasing that we got the late goal, Tom Anderson`s tackle at 1-0 was crucial, and credit to Matty for being in the right place at the right time, but it`s a let off because we haven`t been as good today.

"You often get games like that where it hasn`t been our best performance, but we`ve still managed to get something out of the game, and you have to be happy with that considering how much of the game went."

Doncaster now face two more games in the next week with a trip to Walsall in midweek followed by a home clash against Fleetwood Town next weekend.
