Doncaster Rovers 3-0 Yeovil Town

Doncaster Rovers moved to within a point of the League One play-off places after easing past Yeovil Town.

The dominant hosts led when striker Nathan Tyson fired home after Yeovil goalkeeper Artur Krysiak spilled Harry Forrester's powerful drive.

Dean Furman then made it 2-0 after latching on to Curtis Main's cross.

Kieffer Moore had a shot cleared off the line for Yeovil, but their misery was complete when Kyle Bennett slotted home from Tyson's cross.

The win lifted Rovers up to eighth and dropped Yeovil to the bottom, four points from safety.

Doncaster Rovers boss Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"After the disappointment of the Walsall game, the boys have shown a lot of character and quality.

"To score eight goals in four or five days and concede none is a big testament to them.

"I was worried about today. After a result like that and winning 5-0, people can get carried away."

Yeovil acting manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

"The main positive is that we are four points away from getting ourselves out of the relegation zone. I think that's the main one after today.

"It seemed to be an uphill battle after the first goal. You can see how Crawley might have been done for five. We had to ride our luck at time and we had to readjust our shape.

"Coming up here without our captain and AJ Leitch-Smith getting injured and readjusting like we did at Crewe - it seems like the beginning of such a good week is ending with a real tough blow."
