Livingston report and overview

Rovers lined up with Warrington in goal, Morley,Foster,Ryan and Beech in defence, a midfield of Paterson,Ravenhill,Doolan and Tierney, with Fortune West and Blundell up front . Kicking towards the town end in the first half.

After just two minutes Rovers had the chance to take the lead.when Greg Blundell cut in from the left and shot inches wide with Ricky Ravenhill at full stretch just failing to make contact. In Livingston's first attack they hit the base of the post with Warrington beaten diving to his left, Ryan completing the clearance. Blundell on 8 minutes beat the offside trap only to see the linesman's flag raised, in the first of many odd decisions. It was end to end stuff Livingston plenty of pressure, but they were at this stage limited to shots from distance. Rovers were starting to get the better of the offside trap and Blundell put in an inviting low cross that was just inches away from the reach of Fortune West.

Rovers hit a good patch and Blundell put the ball in the net three times in eight minutes, unfortunately only one counted. The first effort was where he clearly beat the offside trap but the linesman raised his flag, the second was when Paterson was brought down on the edge of the box and took a quick free kick sliding the ball through to Blundell only for the referee to insist on it being taken again. Finally after a good Doolan shot had been saved, on 25 minutes, Blundell had a goal allowed. Having been put through by Ricky Ravenhill he stroked the ball past the keeper to put the ball to the keeper's left. Foster then headed wide after a Paterson free kick. Livingston finished the first half the stronger. Andy Warrington saved with his feet when facing a one on one situation. then came the next extraordinary decision on 39 minutes. Dave Morley appeared to win a header on the edge of his own box, only for the attacking player to lay injured. The referee gave a free kick and the equalizer came directly from it. A final effort by Blundell after good work by Beech saw the half finish 1-1.

No changes were made by Rovers at half time, and they started in a good manner. Fortune West worked well on the edge of the box before Tierney shot across goal but there was no one to convert the cross. On 55 minutes Livingston were awarded a penalty after an offence by Tim Ryan, although what the offence was and whether it was in the area are open to discussion. The penalty was converted and Livingston lead 2-1.The game became scrappy for a while. Blundell when one on one with Livingston's keeper appeared to be upended after putting a weak shot wide. There was then a strange sight of Ricky Ravenhill being fouled two footed by a Livingston player only for the Livingston player to lay injured for two minutes. On 56 minutes Jason Blunt replaced Paterson. A probable double sending off had it been a league game happened on 65 minutes as Rovers were ready to take a free kick and Blundell and a Livingston defender both raised their arms and appeared to hit out at each other. A Fortune West header was then put marginally wide from a Beech cross. On 67 minutes it was 3-1 to Livingston. Andy Warrington saved with his feet , but the ball went invitingly for the Livigston forward to head it back past him. Considering the three goals conceded Warrington was in top form and made an excellent save on 70 minutes. A minute later Rovers got their first corner of the game.

The next bit of controversy came on 72 minutes. Warrington made a clearance only to be hacked down by the Livingston forward, which left him needing treatment. Before the play resumed the offending player had been substituted, although whether this was on the referee's advice it is not known. John McGrath replaced Fran Tierney and Barry Richardson replaced Warrington. Another effort by Blundell was then tipped away and he the keeper then denied a Jason Blunt effort.With 82 minutes on the clock Tris Whitman replaced Blundell. just a minute later Fortune West was brought down in the penalty area and John McGrath put away the spot kick. Rovers suddenly found another gear with Whitman heavily involved. Doolan had an attempt to clear Asda and Fortune West hit a shot from distance wide. Tim Ryan then completed the scoring when he put an inviting cross past his own keeper Richardson in added time. Late efforts from Whitman and Doolan came to nothing. Final score Rovers 2 Livingston 4

Rovers can take many positives from the game. Livingston were a much better side than Chesterfield and Sheffield Wednesday had been in the previous two home friendlies. Captain Steve Foster was the pick of the Rovers defenders with Tim Ryan having an off day for him, but that's only because he sets himself such high standards. Rovers struggled throughout the second half to get the ball through to midfield with the Livingston attack pressuring Rovers defence on the edge of the box. Ravenhill and Doolan had lots to do in midfield and coped well.Grag Blundell continues to impress. Jamie Paterson, whose brother played for Gretna last week against Livingston had a quiet game and didn't gel with Morley the way he has been doing with Simon Marples of late. Warrington was in tremendous form and could hardly be blamed for any of the three goals scored against him. Thankfully his injury isn't bad and Mickey Walker said later that he only came off as a precaution. For Livingston they were a hard team but they did roll over dramatically at every opportunity. They were good going forward but could struggle defensively this season. The officials (as we are used to) influenced the game far too much with the referee appearing to give every throw in decision before his assistant had decided which way to call it.It was only a friendly after all.

Livingston win at Belle Vue

Scottish Premier League side Livingston beat Rovers 4-2 at Belle Vue last night. Rovers took the lead through Greg Blundell, with Livingston equalising from a debatable free kick to leave it 1-1 at the break. Livingston then scored a penalty which again looked a strange decision. It went to 3-1 when a fine save by Warrington with his feet ballooned up for the Livingston forward to head back in. John McGrath, a substitute got one back for Rovers from the penalty spot. In the last couple of minutes Tim Ryan scored through his own net to make the final score 4-2.
A brief report of the game will appear here later today.

Rovers were beaten 3-0 at Nuneaton last night. A very poor Rovers team went behind to a sixth minute penalty and never recovered.

Fortune West and Blundell show the way - brief report and overview

Last night at Belle Vue, Rovers gave a very impressive performance to overcome their higher leagued opponents. Lining up with Warrington in goal, a back four of Marples,captain for the day Foster, Ryan and Beech in defence, Paterson,Green,Doolan and Tierney in midfield and Fortune West and Blundell up front. Chesterfield included Gus Uhlenbeek in their side on trial at right back, and he was probably their best player.

Attacking the town end in the first half, Paterson almost scored in the first minute, in fact he had further two further efforts before Chesterfield managed their first shot on target. Chesterfield hit the side netting on 18 minutes. this was closely followed by a decent effort on the turn by Leo Fortune West, which was saved by Muggleton in the Chesterfield goal. Against the run of play Chesterfield took the lead on 22 minutes when Hurst beat the offside trap to run through to score, although from our view he was well offside when he received the ball. A couple of minutes later Fortune West was denied after an offside flag was raised very late. Rovers got level on the half hour. Blundell did some tremendous work down the left and put in a great cross for Leo Fortune West to head down to the keepers left to leave the ball nestling in the net. Paterson hit another shot wide two minutes later as Chesterfield were happy to soak up increased Rovers pressure.

For the second half, Ricky Ravenhill was brought on to replace Green who had taken a knock in the first half. Three minutes in to the half a Paterson corner was headed goalwards by Fortune West and in the scramble Greg Blundell poked the ball home from three yards. After 13 minutes Blundell headed wide from a Paterson cross and within seconds Tim Ryan shot over from around the penalty spot after Fran Tierney and Jamie Paterson had combined well. Such was the Rovers dominance that the photographer who had been seated behind the goal being attacked by Chesterfield, changed ends to see more action. On 26 minutes Marples ran two thirds of the field to set up John Doolan who shot over. A great effort followed when Fortune West flicked the ball on and Blundell attempted to chip the keeper on the volley, but the ball went just over. With 15 minutes to go, Dave Penney made his second change with John McGrath replacing Fran Tierney. Blunt replaced Paterson five minutes later. McGrath sent the ball fractionally wide from a curling free kick with seven minutes to go and then Doolan had another speculative effort from distance. Dave Morley replaced Tim Ryan for the last two minutes before Chesterfield mustered one last attack in added time. The ball going just over bit it would have been an injustice had Chesterfield come away with a draw.

Rovers can draw loads of positives from the game. Ryan proved again that he could easily perform at a higher level and had the beating of every forward Chesterfield threw at him. Green was everywhere in midfield before being replaced by Ravenhill who showed Rovers strength in depth. Paterson had his best game in a long time and looked likely to have a shot every time he got the ball. Doolan is showing the class that many fans doubted at the end of last season and could prove to be a great acquisition. Fortune West struggled to stay on his feet for the first 20 minutes but won everything in the first half in the air and was pushed and pulled at every opportunity by Chesterfield in the second half such was his aerial dominance. He also showed decent touches on the floor as well as a good turn of pace. The star of the show was Blundell. At £ 25,000 this could be the buy of the year. He was faster than anything in a blue shirt, put in some tremendous crosses for Fortune West, showed great tactical awareness with his runs from deep and deserved his goal. With Barnes and Whitman injured the front two certainly showed that they will have to work to get their places back in the team.

From a Chesterfield perspective, they showed some decent touches and looked threatening when they reached the final third, but were completely run out of the game from a tigerish Rovers midfield. They had some trialists on show. Uhlenbeek was the pick of them and he restricted the effectiveness of Fran Tierney. I doubt he'll come across as good a right back in the third division. Ryan France on trial from Alfreton and one time Rovers target came on for the second half but didn't threaten. Rovers go to Nuneaton on Friday and Belper on Saturday to build up their fitness levels. Hopefully when Livingston come to Belle Vue next week more than the 1,874 that turned up last night will be in attendance.

July 24, 2003
Owen signs for Nomads

Gareth Owen, released by Rovers at the end of last season, has joined JT Hughes Mitsubishi Welsh Premier league side Connah's Quay Nomads.

Gareth's father Don, played for the Deesiders when they won the Welsh Cup in 1952. Rovers have decided not pursue their interest in Robert Betts and Michael but still have Hibs midfielder Les Byle on trial.

July 24, 2003
Chesterfield well beaten

Rovers cruised past Chesterfield last night in front of a poor crowd of 1,874. Rovers were unlucky to go behind to a goal on the break by Glyn Hurst, which certainly looked offside. Leo Fortune West equalised for Rovers with a downward header on half an hour following a cross from Greg Blundell. The two combined three minutes into the second half after Fortune West had won a header from a corner and Blundell poked the ball home from close range.

Rovers 2 Gainsborough Trinity 2

Doncaster Rovers drew their second pre-season friendly fixture last night when they drew 2-2 against Gainsborough Trinity at Cantley Park in a "behind closed doors" match. The Rovers side was mainly made up of trialists and reserve team players, although Robert Gill and Steve Burton turned out for the side. Trialists Hilland, Byle, Cole and Betts all played in the game, as they try to impress sufficiently to earn a full contract.

Shirt sponsorship

As a result of it looking very doubtful that the end-of-season sponsors' dinner, held over from the end of last season to this summer, will take place, Rovers are making alternative arrangements for the shirt sponsors to be presented with their shirts. All those sponsoring shirts last season are to be invited to the Presidents Lounge for the Livingston pre-season game for the presentation. The sponsors are requested to contact the club on 01302 539441to make arrangements.
The original dinner at the end of last season was cancelled due to Rovers' involvement in the play-offs, meaning that the players were due to go on holiday immediately after the Promotion Final at Stoke. Other commitments during the pre-season have prevented the arrangement of a date for the event this summer.

July 16, 2003
Rovers 0 Sheffield Wednesday 2
