Doncaster Rovers 0 v Derby County 2 - Sky Bet Championship

Friday 18th April 2014
at the Keepmoat Stadium
Sky Bet Championship
Doncaster Rovers (0) 0
Derby County (1) 2
George Thorne 45
Chris Martin 79
Admission, free, ex gratis, nowt - many thanks Paul Mayfield
Programme £3. Attendance 11,405 (inc. 3,341 Derby fans)
But both clubs needed points for completely different reasons tonight, in so much as: the Rams kicked off sat comfortably in third place in the Championship table, needing just a draw to ensure a place in the end of season play offs, whilst Donny were just three points above the relegation zone, with four games left to play (including this one).
Burnley beat Blackpool earlier today, a result which means that they are eight points ahead of Derby in second place, with three games remaining.
Anything less than a win for the Rams tonight at the Keepmoat, would've seen Burnley's promotion to the Premier League confirmed, but they will have to wait a little while longer now.
Though in all honesty, it is highly unlikely that they will fail to pick up the two points they still need from their remaining three games, against Wigan and Ipswich Town at home and Reading away, on the final day of the league season.
In the unlikely event they lose all three of those games, while Derby win their three remaining three fixtures, against Barnsley and Watford at home and Leeds United away, then the Rams will go up instead of Burnley, and the Clarets will have to compete in the play offs.
Football is seldom predictable at this crunch time of the season.

Sam Johnstone; Gabriel Tamas, Paul Quinn, Abdoulaye  Meite, Enda Stevens; James Coppinger, Paul Keegan ©, Dean Furman (Mark Duffy 75), David Cotterill; Chris Brown (Marc De Val 89), Billy Sharp (Theo Robinson 66)
