Doncaster Rovers stunned high-flying QPR as they battled back to snatch a Championship victory.

Rangers were the better side in the first half and snatched the lead just before the interval when home keeper Ross Turnbull allowed a shot from Charlie Austin to slip from his grasp.

But Doncaster battled back in fine style in the second half with a 48th-minute equaliser from Theo Robinson before full-back Paul Quinn snatched the winner in the closing stages.

Rovers boss Paul Dickov was delighted with his side’s display after they had produced a poor performance when losing at Charlton during the week.

He said “I asked for a reaction and I got it. We let the fans down at Charlton and this performance was for them.

“I’m proud of the way we played considering the injury problems we have at present and that was a terrific display against probably the best team in the division.”
