Barnsley 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster denied Barnsley a sixth consecutive League One win as the two teams drew 1-1 at Oakwell.

Herbie Kane put the visitors in front before Cauley Woodrow levelled for the hosts.

Barnsley were better in possession in the first half and created more chances. However, Doncaster were always a threat on the counter attack. The best chance fell to James Coppinger, who hit the bar after cutting in from the left.

Six minutes after the restart Doncaster took the lead. The ball was won on the right-hand side and Coppinger aimed a perfect cross to Kane who headed in from seven yards out.

In the 62nd minute Barnsley were level. Brad Potts nodded on a free-kick to substitute Woodrow who poked the ball home to level the scores within two minutes of his introduction.

Fifteen minutes from the end, Alfie May missed a golden opportunity to win the game for Doncaster.

Barnsley conceded possession deep in their half and found themselves outnumbered at the back but May blazed his effort over.
