Match ends, Notts County 2, Doncaster Rovers 1.
Notts County 2-1 Doncaster Rovers
Notts County beat Doncaster to climb out of the League One relegation zone.
Garry Thompson put the Magpies ahead when he turned in Graham Burke's cross, and Liam Noble fired in a second from close range after the break.
Doncaster's Nathan Tyson scored an injury-time penalty after he was fouled by Haydn Hollis inside the box, but County clung on for a crucial win.
The result means Ricardo Moniz's side are almost certain to stay up if they beat Gillingham in their final fixture.
Notts County are level on points with Crawley, who sit in the final relegation place, but the Reds would need to win by at least 10 goals if the Magpies win at Gillingham.
Notts County manager Ricardo Moniz told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"We needed that early goal. We had the initiative, but after 30 minutes we gave them far too much space in the midfield and we must organise ourselves better.
"I support Graham Burke's creativity. He's a young guy and we see he can play football, but he still has a lot to learn and we must help him develop.
"We must wait for Colchester's result on Tuesday. Today is a great feeling, however we are still not safe."
