Doncaster 1-0 Tranmere

Rob Jones

Doncaster secured at least a play-off place and stayed top of League One after a hard-fought victory courtesy of Rob Jones' eighth goal of the season.

The Doncaster skipper fired home after latching onto Jamie McCombe's header from a David Cotterill free-kick.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro had Tranmere's best chance, heading Andy Robinson's free-kick wide late in the first-half.

The visitors had most of the play after going behind, but failed to create a clear-cut chance and stayed seventh.

Flynn praises Doncaster back line

"This was going to be a key week and we've come out with six points, clean sheets in both games and a thoroughly good performance.

"We were in control, but we didn't create many chances.

"It was a good second half and Rob [Jones] finished well - that's two centre-halves scoring winning goals this week."
