Most memorable game against Barnsley:

There have been quite a few humdingers in the last few years, whereas prior to 2004, the teams hadn`t met in a competitive match for 25 years. So in recent times, although Rovers have edged it, from a Barnsley point of view it has to be the 4-1 win at home in the 2008/09 season.

At 1-0 down after just 11 minutes after a Brian Stock penalty, it looked like the Reds were about to continue their dismal form against their local rivals, and Simon Davey might be out of a job come full-time. The crucial event came on 49 minutes, when Doncaster broke from a Barnsley attack, leaving Darren Moore on his own to chase down the Rovers attacker. Moore, who was never the quickest, duly brought the player down and it was deemed a professional foul by the last man and he was given his marching orders. At the time it looked bleak for Barnsley and even bleaker for Simon Davey, but Moore`s actions had actually saved the Reds from a certain 2-0 deficit, something that would probably have been insurmountable. But the Reds came back a different side and drew level within 5 minutes of the sending off through Stephen Foster`s header and were ahead on the hour-mark thanks to a goal of the season contender from Jamal Campbell-Ryce. The winger received the ball from 'keeper Heinz Muller on the edge of his own penalty area, before dribbling from box to box, beating three players on the way and planting a great shot in the bottom corner from 18 yards.

Substitute Jon Macken got in on the act with 20 minutes left after another stunning run from Campbell-Ryce allowed Devaney an effort, which was parried into Macken`s path by Sullivan, leaving the wiley hitman an easy finish.

Possibly the pick of the goals was Iain Hume`s 25 yard strike to cap of the result, sending the Barnsley fans into raptures. A truly memorable game and a modern classic.
