Striker Danny Hylton has hit back at comments made by Doncaster manager Darren Ferguson following the recent match between the two sides.

During his post match press conference after the 1-1 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium, Ferguson had labelled Town’s scorer a ‘disgrace’ after what he felt had been a deliberate elbow on John Marquis, saying: “His elbow on John Marquis is an absolute disgrace. He’s elbowed him straight in the face, not looked at the ball, it’s got to be looked at.

“It’s a terrible thing to do and he looked at him, waited for him and bang, elbowed him.”

However, Hylton denied there was any truth in that, admitting it had just been an accidental collision between the two.

He said: "I did catch him, but it was my forearm.

“He (Ferguson) said my eyes weren’t on the ball, they were fully on the ball. I’ve watched it back, they were fully on the ball.

“I didn’t look at him, my arm didn’t swing back, he said it did. I don’t agree with his comments, we’ve spoken and I’ve spoken to John Marquis and I said it was an accident and said sorry and it’s all good.”
