0 Westlife gig date criticised by Doncaster Rovers boss

Doncaster Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll has criticised a decision to allow Westlife to play on the club's ground days before the season starts.

Up to 15,000 fans flocked to the Keepmoat Stadium to watch the chart-topping act last Sunday.

But O'Driscoll said the stadium managers were "vindictive" for hosting the concert so close to the season's kick off.

The stadium management said they had not received a complaint from the club.

O'Driscoll said: "I would've loved a home fixture [at the start of the season] because we've never had one in the time we've been in the Championship. We had to give way to Westlife unfortunately.

"It's a source of frustration."
