Doncaster boss Paul Dickov said: “It looks as though he (Billy Sharp) nicked it and that’s what he’s been brought here for.

“We played better and created more chances when we played Blackburn up here a few weeks ago and they beat us 1-0.

“But we’ve got a fox-in-the-box striker who can score you goals and today he’s managed to nick us a point.”
