However, the hosts will feel they should have clinched a first win in five games after dominating for long periods.

A blunder by Rovers goalkeeper Gary Woods gifted the Glovers the lead in the sixth minute when he fumbled a free-kick from Jamie McAllister and Paddy Madden popped up to slam home his 19th goal of the season.

Doncaster responded well and James Coppinger had a low shot saved in the 20th minute before Billy Paynter grabbed a deserved equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

A cracking effort from James Husband was tipped behind by visiting keeper Marek Stech and from the resulting corner Paynter headed home David Cotterill's cross.

Paynter had earlier missed a great chance when he headed against the crossbar and Rovers continued to spurn openings in the second half with Rob Jones heading wide from point-blank range.

Yeovil substitute Gavin Williams squandered a chance in the 70th minute.

Doncaster felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Stech appeared to bring down David Syers 13 minutes from time but the referee waved away the appeals.

Pulis To Liverpool Might Just Work

One Mailboxer believes that Tony Pulis managing Liverpool isn't as silly as you might think. Plus Bournemouth aren't that romantic and we're all guilty of ignoring Everton...
