Doncaster Rovers 2-0 Fleetwood Town

Curtis Main
Curtis Main scored his first goal for Doncaster Rovers since March

Doncaster scored twice in the first half at home to Fleetwood to earn their first win of the League One season.

Rovers capitalised on a lively start when James Coppinger headed home a free-kick on 17 minutes.

Curtis Main slotted home seven minutes later, finishing off some excellent play by Coppinger and Andy Williams.

Fleetwood looked to set-up a tense climax, but Antoni Sarcevic's free-kick was brilliantly saved by Thorsten Stuckmann and David Ball fired wide.
