Doncaster Rovers are now looking nervously over their shoulders after another defeat saw the gap between them and the bottom three closed to five points.

Whilst Doncaster lost 3-1 at Hull City Both Scunthorpe and Preston won to increase the pressure.

Rovers fell behind to a Richard Garcia effort inside ten minutes but they was soon level when Franck Moussa blasted home after James Coppinger`s effort came back off the post.

Hull retook the lead from the penalty spot through Matt Fryatt after a silly foul by Shelton Martis.

Fryatt scored his second early in the second half from close range to finish the game off as a contest.

Rovers now get ready for their biggest game of the season on Good Friday when they entertain fourth from bottom Crystal Palace with victory almost guaranteeing survival for the winners.
