Slazenger 4’s gave a decent team performance against a good Doncaster side. In baking hot conditions. Slazenger held their own in the early part of the game, keeping possession quite well and trying to use the full width of the pitch without really troubling the opposition goalkeeper despite Matthew Smith working tirelessly up front.
Doncaster came back into the game more as the first half wore on they were able to keep their shape whilst Slazengers lost their way a little with the constant substitutions that were required on such a hot day. 0-0 at half time.
Doncaster started the second half much brighter and applied lots of pressure keeping the away team in their half for long periods of time. The first goal came about by a mishap in the Slazenger goal area and the opposition took advantage.
Slazengers started to rally after going behind and grimly tried to find a way back into the game. With the pace of the game slowing due to the conditions Robert Cann got hold of a neat through pass and put the visitors level. This parity was short lived as the home side went straight up the other end and scored what proved to be the winner.
Final score 2-1 to the home side.
