Doncaster Rovers slipped back towards the relegation zone after losing to Reading at home 2-1.

The visitors took the lead towards the end of the first half when Shane Long powered his header past Sullivan in the Rovers goal.

Reading doubled their lead with just over ten minutes remaining when Brian Howard had space and time to pick his spot.

Rovers got a lifeline soon afterwards when former Rovers defender Matt Mills was sent off for deliberate handball inside the area, Billy Sharp scored from the resulting spot kick.

Rovers twice claim close to salvaging a point in the dying minutes.

Firstly James Hayter saw his shot crash back off the bar and then deep into injury time Brian Stock`s chip was tipped over by Federici in the Reading goal.

The defeat was Rovers third league defeat in a row and they now sit in seventeenth position just four points above the drop zone.

Rovers have got the look of a side heading back towards League One at the moment.

Its not the time in the season to be having a bad run of results. As daft as this league is a few wins and we will be talking about the play offs again.
