Doncaster Rovers claimed all three points against high flying Nottingham Forest thanks to Billy Sharp`s twelfth goal of the season.

Rovers welcomed back to the starting line up Jason Shackell who had recovered from a groin strain and replaced Gareth Roberts who is injured.

Dean Shiels who missed the midweek draw through injury was back on the bench.

Shackell`s return to the first team lasted less than fifteen minutes when he had to be replaced.

Rovers won the game when sharp played a good one-two with Chambers and scored with a header.

Forest were reduced to ten men inside the final ten minutes when McCleary was sent off for a foul on Oster.

The victory takes Rovers into fourteenth place on thirty seven points and five points above the relegation zone.
