MOMENT OF THE WEEKEND: Revell’s goalkeeping display

We all tend to fancy ourselves in goal, thinking that we will all summon the greatness of Gordon Bank but not everyone can do it.

Step up Alex Revell of MK Dons, who managed to convince his teammates that he was the ideal player to stick in between the posts and he proved that it was the right decision. He saved a late penalty that saw the Dons original goalkeeper sent off and managed to see out the rest of the game without conceding.

Admittedly, he didn’t have to make another save but hats off to the forward for stepping up. It would have been huge if his teammates could pull out the win but they didn’t and Karl Robinson’s men are still staring down at the abyss in the Championship.

GAME OF THE WEEKEND: Doncaster Rovers 3-1 Wigan Athletic

What a way to break a 17-game winless run and what a team to do it against. No one would have given Doncaster a chance against the league leaders but somehow, someway, they found a way to victory.

Things did not get off to the best start when Will Grigg put Wigan ahead before half time but the second half was a different story. Two headed goals from Andy Butler gave Rovers the lead and Andy Williams sealed the points from the spot after David Perkins saw red for a challenge on Gary McSheffrey in the box.

The three points give Doncaster a bit of hope heading into the final four games of the season. They are six points off safety and they do need to improve their goal difference, but Darren Ferguson’s men at least have a chance to avoid the drop to League Two.
