Leaders Doncaster see off Crewe to extend winning run

Doncaster ran out 3-1 winners for the third consecutive game as they swept past strugglers Crewe.

Goals from Conor Grant, John Marquis and Tommy Rowe helped Doncaster to a sixth win in seven matches to strengthen their place at the top of the Sky Bet League Two table.

Grant slammed in from 25 yards with 22 minutes on the clock to put Doncaster in front and it only looked like being one-way traffic.

But Crewe surged back and grabbed a deserved equaliser when James Jones slammed in after Rovers keeper Ian Lawlor had saved superbly from Chris Dagnall.

Doncaster were indebted to Lawlor for keeping the scores level heading into the break as he saved from new signing Jordan Bowery and Jones.

But Doncaster emerged for the second half refreshed and went back in front after 56 minutes. Grant delivered a superb free-kick which the unmarked Marquis guided into the net.

And Doncaster put the game to bed after 68 minutes. Andy Williams headed off the bar and Rowe mopped up the rebound.
