They came oh so close to reaching the promised land of the Premiership in 2016, giving big-spending Bristol the fright of their lives in the play-off final. But last year Doncaster Knights said the Aviva Premiership was out of their reach financially and wouldn’t go up even if they earned that right on the pitch. So how does the land lie now at Castle Park and what does the future hold for a club that has risen from the Yorkshire League to the brink of the big time?
John Oster has described the divide in the Doncaster Rovers dressing room under Dean Saunders as “a cancer through the club”. In an extraordinary interview, the 39-year-old says the team dynamic at Rovers during the infamous ‘experiment’ was the worst he witnessed during his 21-year playing career.
Darren Ferguson insists there will be no more pressure than normal on his Doncaster Rovers side when they host Bradford City on Monday night. With the game pushed back two days for live television coverage, Rovers’ relegation rivals can steal a march on them this afternoon. Rovers are also without a game next weekend due to Blackburn’s international call-ups and they will not be back in action until Good Friday at Blackpool.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
