Doncaster Rovers 0-0 Gillingham

Doncaster settled for a point on their return to League One after a 0-0 draw with Gillingham.

Rovers midfielder Ben Whiteman saw one strike hit the woodwork and another cleared off the line, while the visitors also had opportunities to walk away with the spoils in an entertaining encounter at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The hosts had the better of the play overall and should have been in front early in the game with Liam Mandeville and Matty Blair both going close.

Gillingham surged back as the half wore on with Gabriel Zakuani seeing a header clawed off the line by Ian Lawlor while Danny Andrew drew a fine save from Thomas Holy at the opposite end.

Doncaster continued to have the better of the chances with Holy saving an Andy Butler header while Mandeville drilled narrowly over.

Gills' Scott Wagstaff made sure Lawlor stayed alert with a rasping drive while John Marquis curled wide from 20-yards as Rovers looked the more likely to win it.

And Whiteman twice went close to ensuring that, sending a dipping volley back off the crossbar before seeing another superb strike headed over by O'Neill.
