Bakayogo may have been a doubt going into the game, but he made two last ditch tackles to prevent a strong Doncaster side from scoring.
Steve told crewealex.net: “Zoumana was excellent. We didn’t think he was going to make it but he wants to play in every game and if there is nothing holding him back then he will be out there. He is prepared to play with a slight knock and that is the type of spirit and character I want.
“He made some great recovery tackles. There was one when he followed their man and made a great interception. He timed it perfectly and if he hasn’t had made it then he had a great chance in front of our goal.
“His covering to help up others was excellent.”
