Match Report

CARDS: GREEN: David Smith, Ethan Chapman

An early goal from Doncaster's Matt Gibson was enough to take all the points in Sunday's Yorkshire Derby.
The Sheffield team will be desperately disappointed to come away from the match with absolutely nothing.
They controlled much of the game, limiting their hosts to just the one real shooting opportunity and created many themselves.
The problem was that Doncaster took all their chances while Sheffield wasted theirs.

There will be those who will be concerned at Sheffield's lack of scoring.
There will also be those concerned at the number of points being dropped. And those people will be right to be concerned.
However, despite the obvious frustrations, there were genuine positives to take from this game.
The work rate from the side was unquestionable with strong performances throughout.
The ability to manage the pitch and defend the circle for the vast majority of the game was also encouraging.
These positives still don't mask the obvious issues in front of goal.

The team played well throughout with fluidity at times and matched, even bettered their hosts for vast periods of the game.
In front of goal things started to unravel.
Martin Sutherland got too much stick on an attempted deflection at a penalty corner and saw his effort fly over the bar.
Nick Mobbs found himself at the top of the circle with time for a shot but couldn't quite time his effort and saw it bounce harmlessly wide.
James Legg also got himself in to a good position but when the time came for the shot was off balance with the ball bobbling behind him.
Liam Brown was able to round the Doncaster defence but the final ball in to a crowd of players was turned away to safety rather than turned in to the home goal.
Disappointing that no goals were scored, but just like against Wakefield and Olton, the main positive being that at least chances were created.
Next up its Deeside at home.
