Rovers beat leaders

Doncaster Rovers claimed their first league win of the season against previously unbeaten league leaders Cardiff City.

After the disappointment of two defeats in the last week, Rovers made no mistake with two goals inside the first twenty minutes from Adam Lockwood and James Hayter.

Rovers thoroughly deserved the three points and go into the international break sitting in fourteenth place with six points from five games.
