Doncaster Paper Review

18 February 2015

What the press made of the trip to Yorkshire

The Sentinel
A WEARY Crewe side saw their unbeaten run come to an end in the 90th minute of their trip to Doncaster Rovers.
Richie Wellens’ excellent winner in the final minute proved the difference, just as Crewe looked to have earned a valuable point to take back to South Cheshire.
George Ray handed Crewe a deserved seventh minute lead but from the moment the two sides came out for the second half Doncaster threw everything at the Alex who came within seconds of a valuable point.
Doncaster couldn’t be bgrudged their win as they bossed the second period and would have wrapped the points up much sooner had it not been for a resolute defensive effort.

The Chronicle
Crewe Alex's winning run was halted by a Doncaster side who snatched an injury-time winner at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night.
Going into the game on the back of a three consecutive victories, the Railwaymen took an early lead through George Ray and Nicky Ajose and Marcus Haber had big chances to extend their advantage.
At one stage they were up to 13th in League One, but as Steve Davis's men tired the home side grew stronger.
Dean Furman levelled just after the hour and Richie Wellens curled the clincher just as the Alex thought they'd earned a precious point.
The defeat has dropped them a place to 18th but their seven-point buffer from the drop zone remains.

Doncaster Free Press
Richie Wellen’s last-gasp wonder goal sent Doncaster Rovers into the top six.
An intriguing game had appeared to be heading for a draw but Wellens had other ideas and his sublime 90th minute strike secured Rovers’ third successive league win – the first time they have achieved that feat since January 2013.
Visitors Crewe tactically out-thought Doncaster before the break and led at half time thanks to defender George Ray’s close-range finish.
However, the Railwaymen were completely penned in after the break and Rovers turned the game on its head with goals from DeanFurman and Wellens.
