O'Driscoll: 3-1 Defeat Was A Fair Result

O'Driscoll: 3-1 Defeat Was A Fair Result

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll said yesterday's 3-1 defeat against Swansea City was a fair result.

The visitors were the brighter of the two sides early on as Swansea City struggled to get their passing game flowing, our play was rather untidy to begin with and Rovers opened the scoring after just 10 minutes.

Alan Tate was then brought down in the box after a good run down the left, and Scotland stepped up to bring the sides level again.

Gomez then struck a double in the final 20 minutes to give us a deserved win.

'I can't quite make out whether it was a difficult game for [the referee] or whether he over-reacted because he was certainly quick with the yellow cards.

'Two of them mean a red so there is little to say about Wellens being sent off although his second booking was a little soft.

'I am a little disappointed at cries of 'cheat' when James Coppinger was injured.

'The lad is now in hospital having a brain scan after suffering possible concussion.

'With regards to the football it was a fair result and Swansea are probably equipped better than most to come up a division and do well.

'You have to stamp some authority on the game right at the beginning but we didn't start very well despite scoring a goal.

'We ended up struggling to close them down. It was difficult for us as this is a hard place to come.'
