O`Driscoll upbeat despite defeat

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll felt a draw would have been a fair result at Millwall.The game looked to be heading that way until substitute Kevin Lisbie snatched the points for the Lions with the only goal in injury time."I didn't think either side deserved to win it. It was poor conditions, a poor game and a difficult pitch - one keeper kicks it straight to the other end and that sort of summed up the game, so it was disappointing," said O`Driscoll."You can point to things we can do better but it's an unforgiving league and we've come with another patched-up side and we just wanted not to give them anything because if you go one down here, it is difficult to break them down."We've been shipping goals left, right and centre so to keep a clean sheet against Burnley and to restrict Millwall is obviously a positive and when you lose in the last minute, you need to find the positives."We missed James Hayter and James Coppinger, especially away from home when we're trying to create stuff. But we battled away and tried to play the percentages, which is unfortunate because it doesn't make for a good spectacle, but we're in a league that is so demanding and you look at our bench and we only had six subs."
