While the big boys were off galavanting around Europe, there were heart-breaking scenes at the Keepmoat Stadium last night where Doncaster striker Billy Sharp, who tragically lost his two-day old son Luey on Friday, opted to play through the pain against Middlesbrough, led a minute’s applause before kick-off and then scored a stunning volley in the 14th-minute before revealing a t-shirt that read ‘that’s for you son’…

Top marks to the referee Darren Deadman as well, who used his discretion admirably and saw fit not to book Sharp after the emotional tribute.

Well played all-round.

RIP Luey Jacob Sharp.
