Sunderland missed the chance to move to within three points of League One’s automatic promotion places as they were held to a goalless draw by Doncaster.

After a poor first half, Rovers forward Madger Gomes had a shot saved by Black Cats keeper Jon McLaughlin before Jon Taylor headed the rebound wide.

Visiting keeper Seny Dieng was called into action in second half injury-time, saving two efforts from Duncan Watmore.

The draw moves Sunderland up to fifth, five points behind Wycombe in second.

Neither side mustered an effort on target in the first half, with Sunderland defender Joel Lynch sending a near-post header from a corner into the side-netting and Tom Anderson putting a header wide of the post at the other end.

Doncaster forward Niall Ennis blazed over the Sunderland bar from the edge of the area shortly after the restart as the game sprung into life.

The hosts then started to threaten, with Chris Maguire volleying over from eight yards out and Charlie Wyke having a close-range effort brilliantly blocked by Anderson.

On-loan QPR man Dieng comfortably gathered Watmore’s glancing header and then scrambled a snap-shot from the substitute behind in the closing seconds, with Phil Parkinson’s men finishing the stronger side.

The draw extends Sunderland’s unbeaten run to eight league matches, while a point leaves Doncaster three points off the play-off places ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.
