Derby 0-1 Doncaster

Paul Jewell is still waiting for his first league win as Derby manager as they lost their first game back in the Championship at home to Doncaster.

Lewis Guy put newly-promoted Rovers ahead on the hour mark at Pride Park when he touched in Brian Stock's free-kick after a Robbie Savage foul.

A new-look Derby had had their chances to go in front, with striker Rob Hulse hitting the post and missing a sitter.

Steve Davies twice went close with headers, but Doncaster held on to win.

Derby boss Paul Jewell:
"We didn't underestimate them because they are a good team that has been together for a few years.

"We missed two really good scoring opportunities and that cost us.

"Once they scored they made us chase shadows and made us look like a new team which we are.

"We had seven players making their debut and it showed. It is not a crisis losing after one game."

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll:
"I felt we played well and I'm pleased with the way we adapted to our first game in the Championship.

"It was a challenge for our players coming to play against a team that were in the Premier League last season.

"The players have showed that they are up for the challenge and now we have to maintain it."
