Doncaster Rovers 3-0 Chesterfield

Chesterfield manager Dean Saunders saw his side succumb to defeat on his return to Doncaster Rovers.

Doncaster were awarded a penalty after Daniel Jones handled in the box.

However, Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee saved Tyson's spot-kick, only to parry the ball to the onrushing striker who slid in Doncaster's first.

Andy Williams doubled Rovers' lead from 12 yards shortly afterwards, before Cameron Stewart broke clear and finished past Lee to secure the win.
