Doncaster continued their improved results with a 1-0 win against Plymouth at The Keepmoat.
The only change in the starting line up from the draw at Watford was Sam Hird replacing the injured Shelton Martis.
In a very quiet first half hour the only talking point was the withdrawal of referee Richard Beeby who went off injured.
Rovers began to take control of the game and a good low cross from Coppinger was missed by everyone.
Soon after Rovers scored what was to be the decisive goal when Brian Stock picked up the ball 30 yards out and his fierce shot left Larrieu with no chance in the Plymouth goal.
Plymouth tried to get back into the game before half time without ever seriously troubling Sullivan in the Rovers goal.
The second half started fairly evenly with Wellen`s having Rovers best chance but shot over when in a good position.
Plymouth then had their best chance of the match when Gallagher did well to make himself some space inside the box, his shot was superbly tipped over by Sullivan.
Gallagher tested Sullivan again soon after, once again he was able to deny the Plymouth striker.
Rovers began to take control of the game again after this and Taylor should have done better when well placed in the area.
Mills then had a header clear the bar from a corner when he headed it into the ground.
Coppinger then wanted too much time to get his shot away when in a great position, allowing the Plymouth defence to get back to get in a tackle.
Rovers sat back a little late on allowing Plymouth to attack their goal but never really caused any major concern to the defence.
A good win for Rovers, a win that sees them up to twenty second in the table and now only two points from the safety positions.
With the next three games being against teams in the top eight it was an important three points.
