Koumas leaves it late for Bluebirds

Jason Koumas came off the bench to fire two stunning injury-time goals to clinch three crucial points for Cardiff and deny Doncaster a draw they thoroughly deserved.James Coppinger, with his seventh goal of the season, looked to have grabbed a valuable point to boost Rovers' survival hopes with a 78th-minute equaliser which cancelled out Chris Burke's 15th-minute opener.And a draw would have been nothing less than the hosts deserved having dominated proceedings at the Keepmoat Stadium, only to rue a lack of killer instinct in front of goal.But Koumas, who had only been on the pitch for three minutes, picked the perfect moment to open his account this season with a great 90th-minute free-kick.And the on-loan Wigan winger, amid an otherwise disappointing campaign, sealed a 3-1 win with almost the last kick of the game.Coppinger, Franck Moussa, Simon Gillett and George Friend all went close for relegation-threatened Doncaster, but the win boosted Cardiff's hopes of a top-two finish.
