Doncaster Rovers 2-2 Gillingham

League One promotion hopefuls Gillingham squandered a two-goal lead as Doncaster fought back to earn a point at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Andy Williams slotted in his 14th goal of the season two minutes from time to equalise after Cameron Stewart's free-kick had reduced the arrears.

Rory Donnelly gave the Gills the lead with a fine volley from a tight angle.

Bradley Dack headed onto the bar before setting up Donnelly's second just after half-time, but they could not hold on.
