Saturday, 22 July, 2017 - 14:00

Sheffield eased to a comfortable pre-season win over a young Doncaster Rovers side,  running out 3-0 winners at a sunny Home iof Football. 

Club took an early lead in the 5th minute, as James Gregory burst through the defence, setting Joel Purkiss up with a great drive that left keeper Declan Ogley scrambling. 

The second came on 21 minutes, as Joel Purkiss was tripped by Cody Prior in the box; up stepped Andrew Gascoigne to place the ball home from the spot to make it 2-0.

Club wrapped things up in the 48th minute, after Mawson was upended by Hiobi in the area, this time Morris smashed the spot-kick into the roof of the net to complete the scoring.
