Fleetwood 0 – 0 Doncaster: Rovers held to stalemate by fellow League One strugglers

Written by Liam O'Connor

Doncaster had to settle for a point at Fleetwood Town in a draw which does little for either side’s chances of avoiding the drop.

A game of low quality typified both team’s seasons as clear-cut opportunities were few and far between.

Rovers came into the game on the back of a five-game loss streak, while Fleetwood are the league’s lowest scorers.

Neither keeper was fully tested all afternoon as Cian Hayes came closest for the home side, firing just over early on.

Rovers’ best chance came just before the break as Jordy Hiwula’s effort from outside the box was saved by Kieran O’Hara.

Fans took to Twitter to complain about the display and looming relegation.

Rovers’ manager Gary McSheffrey aired his frustration at the draw after the game, but also took some positives.

He said: “We had opportunities. We had a few good efforts and more good entries into the final third where we just didn’t make the right decision with the final pass or final shot.

“We’d have loved to have won it but if you can’t win then you don’t lose.

“We’ve gained a point on a couple of teams and if we can back that up with a big win next week it could turn out to be a good point.”

Rovers welcome Charlton to the Eco Power Stadium on Saturday in another huge game as they battle the drop.
