Rovers beaten at the death

Millwall earned all three points against Doncaster Rovers with a last minute Kevin Lisbie goal.

Rovers made two changes from the side that beat Burnley in midweek.

Steve Brooker and Ryan Mason started in place of the injured James Coppinger and James Hayter.

New signing Ryan Burge was named amongst the substitutes as injury hit Rovers named just six players on the bench.

Allan Dunne had the first chance for the home side but headed over from a corner.

Rovers started to come into the game and Brian Stock and Paul Keegan both had shots blocked by defenders.

Gary Woods was then forced into his first save of the afternoon for Rovers to deny James Henry.

Steve Brooker then had a chance for Rovers but his header drifted wide of the post.

Liam Trotter then had a chance for the home side but once again, Millwall failed to trouble Woods in the Rovers goal when he headed over.

Theo Robinson then had a chance for the home side but his shot was easy for Woods.

Ryan Mason had Rovers last chance of the first half but his shot cleared the bar and the sides went in at half time goalless.

Dunne had the first chance of the second half for the hosts but his shot went over the bar.

Woods then denied Theo Robinson with a good save as the home side searched for an opening goal.

Mason had Rovers first chance of the second half but his shot went harmlessly wide of the post.

Brooker then headed over the bar for Rovers as both sides searched for an opening goal.

Rovers hearts were broken in the first minute of injury time when Henry crossed and substitute Lisbie was there to head past Woods for the only goal of the game.

The defeat leaves Doncaster in fifteenth place and they will hope to have some of their injured players back before next weeks home game with Portsmouth.
