Mansfield Town 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster Rovers' Liam Mandeville celebrates his penalty against Mansfield
Liam Mandeville's goal against Mansfield was his 10th in all competition this season

Liam Mandeville rescued a point for League Two high-fliers Doncaster with a second-half penalty against Mansfield.

Mandeville's effort from the spot, after Mansfield goalkeeper Scott Shearer brought down Tommy Rowe, was Rovers' first shot on target.

Matt Green volleyed the Stags ahead, having earlier escaped punishment after twice clashing with Andy Butler.

After Mandeville levelled, Jordan Houghton went close to winning it for Rovers, hitting the post with a header.

The draw meant Doncaster ended 2016 in third place, with Plymouth and Carlisle climbing above them by virtue of their victories.
