Result: Billy Sharp gives Doncaster Rovers late win against Watford

:Headline: Result: Billy Sharp gives Doncaster Rovers late win against Watford:
Billy Sharp scores in stoppage time to help Doncaster Rovers beat Watford 2-1 in their Championship clash at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Billy Sharp scored a stoppage-time winner to help Doncaster Rovers beat Watford 2-1 in their Championship clash at the Keepmoat Stadium this evening.

The visitors had the first chance of the match when Alexander Merkel exchanged passes with Troy Deeney, before seeing his shot saved by Sam Johnstone.

In the 19th minute Watford were reduced to 10 men, as Mathias Ranegie kicked out at James Husband and was shown a straight red card.

It did not take Doncaster long to make their numerical advantage count, as six minutes later they took the lead. James Coppinger whipped in a cross that was met by Chris Brown at the front post to head past Jonathan Bond and into the net.

David Cotterill then tried his luck from range for the hosts with a swerving shot after cutting in from the right, but his effort drifted wide of the far post.

Merkel came close to equalising for the visitors at the start of the second half when his free kick came off the bar, and from the rebound Deeney fired over.

In the 68th minute of the match Watford levelled the scores, as Ikechi Anya latched on to Fernando Forestieri's ball over the top before firing an effort past Johnstone and into the bottom corner.

Sharp almost restored Doncaster's lead immediately as he was picked out by Mark Duffy at the back post, but put his header over.

Paul Keegan came even closer to scoring for the home side, when he saw his low strike cleared off the line by Deeney.

Doncaster continued to look the more likely to score the next goal and Duffy saw his free kick pushed behind by Bond.

With the game heading towards a draw, Doncaster snatched all three points in stoppage time, as Duffy's long-range strike was spilled by the keeper and Sharp followed up to slot home the rebound. body check tags ::
