Rovers down after rollercoaster at the Keepmoat
Doncaster Rovers have been relegated to League One after four years in the championship after a rollercoaster afternoon at the Keepmoat.
Rovers raced into a two goal lead inside five minutes thanks to goals from Habib Beye and Fabian Robert.
The game changed just short of the hour when Beye was sent off for an alleged foul in the penalty area on Portsmouth striker Dave Kitson and Greg Halford scored from spot.
Within six minutes Portsmouth were level when Halford scored his second from the penalty spot.
Rovers were quickly back in front when James Coppinger scored for Rovers but two goals in injury time from Kitson and Marco Futacs condemned Rovers to League One.
Woods, O'Connor, Friend, Lockwood, Beye, Oster (Hird 59), Gillett, Barnes, Robert (Hayter 46), Brown (Dumbuya 73), Coppinger.
Ashdown, Ward, Rocha, Pearce, Rekik (Futacs 76) Halford, Norris, Allan, Etuhu (Kitson 28), Maguire, Varney (Harris 46)
