Referee:

Doncaster finally brought to an end their six match losing run and will have felt unfortunate not to take all three points in a frantic finish.

Sean O`Driscoll was forced to make one change with Mark Wilson replacing the injured Richie Wellens. He did however make a few changes with Chambers, Elliott and Price all returning to the starting eleven.

A very tight match with chances very few and far between, Jason Price had Rovers first chance forcing Rachubka into a save.

Steve Kabba wasted the visitor`s first chance when blazing over the bar.

Price had another chance soon after and once again forced the visiting keeper into a great save.
Jason Price was looking like Rovers main danger and the seasider`s keeper kept him at bay again shortly before half time.

Keith Southern had a good chance to give the visitors the lead just short of the hour mark, Keith Southern made a hash of his chance when set up.

Blackpool should have been awarded a penalty when Adam Lockwood rugby tackled Ben Burgess but to everyone`s surprise the referee waved away the Blackpool protests.

Blackpool were the slightly better side in the second half and Rovers fans were beginning to get twitchy when chances fell to Edwards and Kabba late on.

The real drama was to come in the last few minutes, firstly Martin Woods managed to finally beat Rachubka but his powerful shot came back off the woodwork. More drama was to follow when recently introduced James Hayter`s acrobatic effort for Rovers was fantastically saved by Rachubka.

Although Rovers would have been wanting three points from this game it`s good that the losing run has now come to an end.

We now have two very difficult away games coming up, firstly the free scoring Reading on Tuesday night before a trip to Norwich on Saturday.

Hopefully we can pull off a shock result at Reading on Tuesday and that could kick start the season once again for the Rovers.
