Doncaster   1 - 1   Watford

Highlights - Doncaster 1-1 Watford

Doncaster 1-1 Watford

Jason Euell's first goal for injury-hit Doncaster earned a key point for his new side against play-off chasing Watford who had John Eustace sent off.

The visitors led after 22 minutes when Andreas Weimann cut the ball back for Danny Graham to head in his 17th league goal of the season from close range.

On loan from Blackpool, Euell equalised just before half-time when his low shot went in after the ball hit both posts.

Eustace was dismissed with 10 minutes left after a second yellow card.

Though the draw dented Watford's promotion push, it left 19th-placed Doncaster without a win in six league games.

The hosts started the livelier with Scott Loach having to tip Sam Hird's shot over the crossbar before fit-again striker Billy Sharp flashed his shot just wide of the post.

But the Hornets broke the deadlock when Weimann chipped back for Graham to finish unerringly.

Watford threatened to extend their lead 10 minutes later but Stephen McGinn, under pressure from Joe Mills, drilled his right-footed shot over the crossbar.

Rovers hit back just before the break when Hird sent veteran striker Euell through to equalise.

After coming on as a substitute, Watford forward Marvin Sordell then almost made an immediate impact but his shot went over the crossbar.

Euell could have had his second goal of the game but his shot also just dipped over Loach's goal.

With 10 minutes remaining Eustace, who was booked in the first half, was shown his second yellow card for a deliberate handball.

Doncaster tried to make their extra man count as Paul Keegan's volley was deflected just wide, but they lacked the cutting edge to find three points.
