Doncaster News and Features: WATSON SPARES ROVERS BLUSHES

Rovers could only draw with the West Midlands side in this FA Trophy clash, and will travel to The Grove, Halesowen on Tuesday night with a 7.45 kick off.

Halesowen went ahead on 53 minutes through former Oldham Athletic striker Ian Olney, with the Rovers defence vainly seeking an offside decision. Olney didn't hesitate, and powered the ball past Warrington in the Rovers net.

Winger Andy Watson was then introduced as a 58th minute sub, on his return from a long spell out injured. The ex Garforth youngster duly produced his first goal of the season 5 minutes later, with a dipping volley from way outside the Halesowen area. The home side then starting playing their best attacking football of the game, and were it not for a memorable performance by Halesowen keeper McDonnell, they may have stole a victory, which would have been harsh on the spirited visitors. Ex Rovers midfielder Paul Birch, now 37, had an excellent game, and nearly caught out Warrington with a teasing lob to match Watsons in injury time.
