Doncaster 'allow' Bury to score goal

London: Doncaster Rovers allowed Bury to walk in an equalising goal unopposed in their English third-tier match on Saturday after they had unintentionally taken the lead themselves.

An attempt by Doncaster's Harry Forrester to pass the ball back to Bury following a throw-in in stoppage time ended in a freak goal when it bounced over visiting 'keeper Christian Walton, who had originally kicked the ball into touch following an injury.

But with time ticking away at the end of the match, Doncaster manager Paul Dickov told his players to allow Leon Clarke to stroll half the length of the pitch unchallenged from the kick-off and score the equaliser, which meant the match finished 1-1. Bury manager David Flitcroft hailed his opposition.
