It was my first visit to Highbury in my quest to complete the 92. I am a Swansea City fan, so apologies for not knowing the majority of players’ names.
It’s fair to day that this game will not be one that lives long in the memory; a game that had a few clear cut chances. Doncaster started off the brighter, after some sloppy defending from Fleetwood, but only Lynden Gooch managed to force Chris Maxwell into making a great save. Richard Chaplow, who looked assured in midfield, came close with some good long range efforts.
Cedric Evina caused problems all afternoon, but his final ball was not always as good unfortunately. Doncaster looked to break away with pace a lot in the second half, but just couldn’t seem to connect with crosses and it just wasn’t Andy Williams’ day. Fleetwood seemed to wake up with 15 minutes to go, but pretty much all the shots they had were blazed way over the bar, and never really worried Thorsten Stuckmann – just one effort from Jimmy Ryan that crashed against the bar from about 25 yards and out, was unlucky.
All in all I thought a draw was the fairest outcome. I was just hoping it would be a 4-4 draw!
