'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Doncaster upbeat despite defeat

Coventry City and Doncaster Rovers meet at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday night having both suffered weekend defeats which didn't tell the whole story of their respective games.

While the Sky Blues were hammering away in vain at the Preston goal in search of an equaliser, Rovers were proving more than a match for league leaders Queens Park Rangers, who eventually prevailed at Loftus Road.

'I told my players this would be our toughest game so far, so I wasn't surprised,' said R's boss Neil Warnock afterwards. 'Doncaster are a good team and have a very good chance of being in the play-offs.'

Opposite number Sean O'Driscoll meanwhile commented: 'Overall I thought we played really well. I'm pleased with the performance but not with the result, but that's what happens in this division.

'Now we have to be resilient and bounce back.'

Doncaster's return to the second tier of English footabll in 2008 led to the first meeting between the two sides since 1952 and the four games that have taken place have been very tight affairs, with only three goals having been scored.
