Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Sheffield United

Che Adams
Che Adams netted his eighth goal of the season for Sheffield United

Sheffield United ended a three-game winless run as Che Adams' first-half goal sealed a 1-0 victory against South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers.

Jose Baxter had been denied by Rovers goalkeeper Chris Neal before supplying the through-ball for Adams to score.

Andy Williams, who had Rovers' best first-half chances, was unable to connect with a Cameron Stewart cross after half-time.

Stewart was also thwarted by the Blades, who go eighth in League One.

Rovers slip to 17th, six points above the four relegation places.
