Rovers slip to another loss

Title-chasing Doncaster suffered a second successive npower League One defeat as they lost 2-1 to Walsall at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The Saddlers grabbed an early lead when skipper Andy Butler headed home from a second-minute corner.

Yet Rovers drew level on 16 minutes, striker Billy Paynter capitalising on a kind deflection from Chris Brown's header to poke the ball home from close range.

Rovers continued to take the game to the visitors and had two claims for first-half penalties rejected by the referee.

Brown headed wide from a cross after Febian Brandy had gone close to punishing a defensive mix-up.

Doncaster skipper Rob Jones headed over on 67 minutes after David Cotterill's 30-yard try had hit the crossbar.

Rovers goalkeeper Gary Woods saved well from substitute Craig Westcarr at the expense of a corner.

Woods also did well to keep out San Mantom's 20-yard effort on 73 minutes.

Brandy then won the goal for Walsall nine minutes later by cutting past Tommy Spurr and slotting the ball home.
