Doncaster Rovers produced one of the best displays in League One to win 3-1 away to Rochdale.

Matt Done had a mixed day, the Rochdale midfielder opening the scoring but he was later to be shown a red card and take an early bath.

Done’s diving header though was cancelled out by Kyle Bennett’s low shot.

And Doncaster finally made the numerical advantage count when after twice hitting the woodwork, Theo Robinson pounced after coming on as a substitute before Curtis Main rounded off the scoring.

Bradford City were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Gillingham.

The Bantams looked set for all three points when Andy Legge turned in Andy Halliday’s shot, for an own goal.

James Hanson struck the post, but the hosts were denied victory when Gills substitute Antonio German netted in stoppage time.

Barnsley were 2-1 losers at Chesterfield.

Striker Eoin Doyle grabbed a double for the Spireites, meaning Keith Treacy’s effort was a mere consolation strike.
