Doncaster Rovers 5-2 Scunthorpe United

Nathan Tyson
Nathan Tyson joined Doncaster from Blackpool last year after loan spells at Fleetwood and Notts County

Nathan Tyson's hat-trick ensured Doncaster ended the season on a high with victory over Scunthorpe.

Niall Canavan's own goal opened the scoring for Doncaster before Tyson headed Kyle Bennett's cross home.

Rob Jones' glancing header made it 3-0 before Andy Butler's rebounded own goal put Scunthorpe on the scoresheet.

Tyson convered two penalties to extend Doncaster's lead before Hakeen Adelakun's late free-kick gave Scunthorpe some consolation.

Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

Robins on Doncaster v Scunthorpe

"I'm glad it's all over and done with in all honesty. What it does, is it makes my decisions a lot easier.

"I think when you look at the first half it was a non-event in a game where we brought over 1,500 supporters.

"We've had great feelgood factor - you know, you want to go into the summer with a bit of momentum but we didn't turn up."
