The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ROVERS will be dis­ap­pointed with a draw af­ter dom­i­nat­ing their South York­shire ri­vals for most of the af­ter­noon.

Paul Dickov’s men, who were with­out key duo Richie Wel­lens and Billy Sharp, cre­ated the best chances and were wor­thy of the points. The draw leaves Rovers still in rel­e­ga­tion trou­ble al­though there is some dis­tance be­tween them and Barns­ley.

For Danny Wil­son’s Barns­ley, it will surely take a mir­a­cle for them to get out of trou­ble this sea­son.

The Tykes have won just one in ten since Wil­son came back to the club as man­ager and seem un­able to string a de­cent set of re­sults to­gether.

They have won just four in 29 at­tempts this sea­son and al­though they have games in hand over their op­po­nents, they must surely be favourites for the drop.

It will be a big few weeks for both South York­shire strug­glers.
