Referee:

Angel Rangel rescued a point for Swansea City at Doncaster Rovers this afternoon with a late injury-time equaliser.

James Hayter's headed goal after 16 minutes looked to be enough to give O'Driscoll's side all three points, but they'll be devastated not to win the battle between two excellent footballing sides.

QPR go back to the top of the Championship with a comfortable win against Preston, while our arch rivals Cardiff City lose ground on Rangers after losing 2-0 at home to Nottingham Forest. Derby County's win also closes the gap on us to 3 points.

Rodgers was forced into making a few changes to his side with Monk and Tate sidelined. Albert Serran and Neil Taylor replaced them and it was a surprise to see top goalscorer Scott Sinclair on the bench.

The Swans were unable to break their record for consecutive away wins, but they'll be happy to get a point, as it looked like we were going to lose our 2nd game in 3.

De Vries made 2 or 3 great saves during the game to keep the scoreline down as the hosts had chances in the second half to double their advantage.

Pratley had our best chances to get us back in the game, but very few would have guessed it would be right-back Angel Rangel who would rescue a point that looked unlikely. The Spaniard netted only his fourth goal for the club after Kemy Agustien played the ball through. Rangel turned and fired the ball in to send just under 700 travelling Swans fans home happy.
