Referee:

Doncaster Rovers came away with nothing from their game at Birmingham City after Marlon King scored a late winner at St Andrews.

Rovers looked like they were going to build on last weekend`s win over table toppers Southampton when they went ahead early in the second half.

Marc Antoine Fortune scored his first goal for the club when he had time and space in the middle to fire past Myhill, after a good ball into the middle by James Coppinger.

Rovers goalkeeper Car Ikeme allowed Birmingham back into the game just past the hour when Chris Burke pounced on his poor clearance, he teed up Marlon King who fired past Ikeme.

The same duo broke Rovers hearts with just two minutes remaining when King was again found with time and space to fire past Ikeme.
