Southend United 0-3 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster came away with an impressive clinical victory at Southend.

Play-off chasing Southend, who lost 4-0 to Millwall on Monday, trailed when they failed to clear a cross and Andy Williams scored from close range.

Rovers hit the post through Paul Keegan and had a header cleared off the line before Aaron Taylor-Sinclair volleyed in their second goal.

And they sealed the win when Adam Thompson brought down Williams and Nathan Tyson converted the penalty.
