14 December 2018

It’s derby day for the Iron this Saturday as they make the trip to take on Doncaster Rovers (12.15pm kick-off).

Ticket News

Doncaster Rovers away ticket news

13 December 2018

United come into the game looking to bounce back from last week’s 2-0 home loss to Gillingham, and seeking to climb the table from their current 20th position.

Rovers were 4-0 victors at Bristol Rovers and sit just outside the play-off positions.

TEAM NEWS…

Manager Stuart McCall reported no fresh injury worries, and was delighted to confirm Matthew Lund has trained pain-free all week after initially worrying there was a problem with his knee that needed a scan earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Jordan Clarke (shoulder) and Funso Ojo (hamstring) have stepped up their returns to training but the game will come too soon.

Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) continue to miss out, while Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season.

PAST MEETINGS…

Our last game against Doncaster came in the Carabao Cup first round back in August, with the South Yorkshire side emerging 2-1 winners. Stephen Humphrys scored the Iron’s goal.

Match Reports

Report: Doncaster Rovers 3-0 Iron

15 December 2018

The Iron lost 3-0 to Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon.

Doncaster took a 2-0 lead in the opening ten minutes after goals from Ben Whiteman and Herbie Kane.

In the final five minutes at the Keepmoat Stadium, John Marquis confirmed Rovers’ victory, making it 3-0.

Manager Stuart McCall made two changes to the team line-up from last weekend’s defeat against Gillingham. Jordan Clarke, returning from a shoulder injury, and Andy Dales started for the Iron, in replace of Cameron Burgess and Kyle Wootton.

The hosts came forward in the opening five minutes when James Coppinger back-heeled the ball to Kane, but defender Charlie Goode made a double block, before Rory McArdle also prevented a shot.

Just one minute later, however, the hosts went 1-0 up via a deflection. Mallik Wilks cut the ball back to Whiteman, striking the ball from 25-yards out and with the help of a deflection, it flew past Alnwick into the target.

It was soon 2-0 to Doncaster when Kane pounced on a loose ball and went through one-on-one with Alnwick. The winger chipped the ball over the goalkeeper with the ball bouncing into the back of the net. 

Rovers came looking for a third in the 13th minute when Danny Andrew hit a driven shot at the goal. However, Goode was in the right place to head it away.

Whiteman had another effort after good build-up play from the hosts, but Alnwick got down low to gather the shot.

The Iron had a chance to get back into the match when Josh Morris controlled the ball following a flick-on from Lee Novak, but his effort just flashed wide of the right post.

Novak played his part in another Iron attack when he floated a cross from the left side into the box. Matthew Lund met it in the air, however the midfielder couldn’t direct it on target.

After the break, Andrew curled a free-kick towards the back post for the home side, with Tom Anderson heading it into the side-netting.

The Iron were unlucky not to score in the 60th minute when Lund forced Ian Lawlor into a good stop. Yasin Ben El-Mhanni did well on the right-wing to cross the ball into the centre, which Andy Dales knocked down for Lund, whose effort was clawed off the line by the goalkeeper.

Good combination play from Dales and Ben El-Mhanni allowed the former to advance forward and shoot. His low strike was deflected behind for a corner, but that came to nothing.

Still in search for a goal, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson showed great trickery on the left-wing and then sent a dangerous cross into the area. Andy Butler cleared the ball only to Lund, whose powerful shot was deflected wide.

With five minutes to go, Marquis made it 3-0 to Doncaster. The forward worked hard to get on the end of a long ball upfield and he calmly slotted it past Alnwick. 

Ben El-Mhanni tried his luck from long range in stoppage time, but his attempt was held by Lawlor. Lund then curled a late free-kick just wide of the away team’s goal.

That was the last action at the Keepmoat Stadium, as the Iron face Bradford City away from home next weekend.
