Doncaster Rovers 1-2 Gillingham

Peter Taylor, Gillingham
Peter Taylor's Gillingham have got 22 points from 20 matches

Luke Norris scored twice as Gillingham beat fellow strugglers Doncaster for their first away win this season.

Doncaster, however, dominated the first half and Stuart Nelson made good saves from James Coppinger and Kyle Bennett.

The Gills took the lead after the break when Norris bundled in Michael Doughty's left-wing cross, before the striker lashed in from 20 yards.

Max Ehmer brought down Theo Robinson and Curtis Main scored a consolation from the resulting penalty.
