DONCASTER Rovers WILL train at the Keepmoat Stadium on Friday after a row with the venue’s bosses.

The club was initially refused permission by the Stadium Management Company (SMC) to use the pitch in preparation for the visit of high-flying Cardiff City on Saturday.

That decision provoked an angry response from Rovers’ chief executive Dave Morris, who accused the SMC of failing to support the club in a statement issued on the Rovers website.

But, within an hour of the statement being released, stadium bosses made a U-turn and decided to sanction the training session.

Rovers pay an annual rent of around £1 million to play at the council-owned stadium.
