Barnsley are drawing 0-0 with Doncaster Rovers at half time as the sides meet in the Championship.

Barnsley are drawing 0-0 with Doncaster Rovers at half time in the Championship, with the hosts having missed a first-half penalty.

The hosts could have taken the lead in the opening minutes when Jean-Yves Mvoto got onto Thomas Kennedy's cross, but his header went wide of goal.

Rovers tried to hit back in the 15th minute as Bongani Khumalo found space, only to head high and wide following Mark Duffy's cross into the box.

Khumalo was at fault minutes later as he gave away a penalty, having fouled Marcus Pedersen in the box. However, Chris O'Grady saw his spot kick saved by Rovers goalkeeper Ross Turnbull.

Khumalo was wasteful again in the 26th minute as he blasted over despite finding himself with time and space in the centre of the box.
