Doncaster Rovers battled to a 1-1 draw at Swindon Town to remain joint top of League One.

Both goals came inside the opening ten minutes. Matt Ritchie scored his eighth goal of the season to give the home side the lead on eight minutes before Danny Hollands turned the ball into his own net after a ball into the middle by James Husband.

Swindon were the better side in the first half and Andy Williams and Chris Martin saw efforts come back off the woodwork whilst Gary Woods was kept busy in the Rovers goal.

Rovers best effort fell to Iain Hume but he failed to trouble the Swindon goalkeeper, putting his effort wide.

Swindon continued to dominate in the second half with Woods once again busy in the Rovers goal and keeping his side on level terms.

Rovers remain joint top with Tranmere Rovers who dropped points in a 2-2 home draw with Portsmouth.

Next up are two home games against inform Coventry City and MK Dons who are currently in sixth place.
