Gaffer's final Donny thoughts

17 November 2014

Nigel Clough praised the character and desire of his team, after watching his ten men claim victory against the odds in Saturday's local derby at Doncaster Rovers.

In a frantic four minute spell just after the hour, Paddy McCarthy was shown a straight red card, Doncaster were awarded a penalty (which Mark Howard saved), before Jamie Murphy fired home a tremendous effort to ensure all three points came back up the M18 to Bramall Lane.

Concluding his thoughts on the weekend's fixture at the Keepmoat, Clough remarked:

"When you have a numerical disadvantage everyone has to work that bit harder, Jose Baxter showed that up front on his own and young Harrison (McGahey)contributed at the end, even though he only played five or six minutes.

"Jamie (Murphy) is getting back to his best, but for me Jay McEveley was the stand out performer, saying that everyone was impressive in the second-half.

"We have a lot of our impact players still striving for top form, Scougs is showing glimpses, whilst Jamal (Campbell-Ryce) and Flynny are a bit in and out, but aren't far off.

"We are in the top six, we are there or thereabouts and we haven't hit top form. If we can stay there until January time then hopefully we can really kick on and finish strongly."
