ON Friday evening Doncaster Rovers treated the Keepmoat Stadium to a real show in the Coca-Cola League One Play-Off Semi Final Second Leg, as they beat Southend United 5-1. But it was the Southend supporters that really did their club proud, singing their hearts out until beyond the final whistle.
DOING the conga around the away end at the Keepmoat Stadium with your team losing 5-0 and then celebrating like they had won a cup final when they scored their consolation goal. That is a real support. A support that was applauded by the thousands of Doncaster Rovers supporters who ran onto the pitch at the end of the game.
A four hour journey from Essex for the travelling Roots Hall fans deserved better than the score line that saw them heading home with a season in League One to look forward to next season, but the Doncaster performance was too over powering for Steve Tilson's men.
Well done to the supporters that came to the Keepmoat, you really did your club and your team proud both inside and outside the ground after the game.
