Doncaster Too Good for Denaby.

Denaby United  1  Doncaster Rovers Res  2

Doncaster Rovers showed up much the better in a vigorous but rather scrappy game with United. The Intake men were prominent in the early stages, but neglected chances, and the natural consequence was that Denaby got away and scored. The tide turned against Doncaster after Bisbv’s goal, and the Rovers were left in the cold for the rest of the first half.

The Rovers were easily on top in the concluding moiety. They scored a couple of goals rather quickly, one by Pagnam and the other by Woodruffe after a reallv good individual effort, and on the run of the play ought to have got more. There was no brilliant forward work on either side, and the two best players on the field belonged to the losing team —Jack Westwood and Marshall. The latter certainly made a poor shape at Woodruffe’s scoring shot, but subsequently played brilliantly.

Rotherham County’s Progress.

Rotherham County  2  Mexborough Town  2

A large share of luck enabled Rotherham County to share the points with Mexborough Town, at Millmoor, on Saturday. Mexborough worried the home defence, but Connelly, at inside left, had trouble with his leg, and was absent (with the exception of five minutes) during the whole of the second half. County moved less briskly than their opponents.

Gladwin opened the account for Mexborough, and although County tried hard the equaliser was a long time in coming, Hakin, from Lee, being responsible. Wathey’s rushes on the right wing eventually had effect, Connelly taking pass and scoring. In the later stages Mexborough had better of matters, their open play being in marked contrast to that of their opponents. Two minutes from the end the teams were brought on level, Palmer accepting a centre from Lloyd.
