Blackpool are level with Doncaster Rovers at half time despite having chances to take the lead.

Blackpool's first 45 minutes of football under caretaker boss Barry Ferguson has ended goalless with Doncaster Rovers, but the Tangerines have had chances to edge ahead.

Both side had opportunities in an open start to the game with David Perkins setting up Jack Robinson for the hosts, but the left-back saw his shot saved by Ross Turnbull.

Michael Chopra, back in the side after seeing limited playing time towards the end of Paul Ince's reign as manager, almost found a way through moments later and the Doncaster keeper was on hand to his effort out.

On 20 minutes, Chris Basham tried his luck from 30 yards out and his shot flew narrowly over Turnbull's bar.

The best chance of the opening stages for the visitors came as a result of Gabriel Tamas's pass into the box, but Chris Brown couldn't divert the ball towards goal.

Blackpool won the reverse fixture 3-1 on the opening day of the season.
