Leyton Orient 0-1 Doncaster Rovers

Rob Jones
Rob Jones joined Doncaster from Sheffield Wednesday in July 2012

Relegation-threatened Leyton Orient slipped to 20th in League One after suffering defeat to Doncaster.

After an uneventful first-half, Rovers centre-back Rob Jones headed in from Kyle Bennett's cross to give the away side the lead.

Orient's Josh Wright and Jay Simpson both brought saves from Stephen Bywater but the hosts rarely threatened.

The result leaves Orient winless in three matches and only out of the relegation places on goal difference.
