Doncaster Rovers went down to an injury time defeat against league leaders Shrewsbury Town at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Arthur Gnahoua scored the winner deep into stoppage time for Shrewsbury, just minutes after Doncaster lost goalkeeper Ian Lawlor through injury.

Doncaster had taken the lead through Tommy Rowe just past the half hour but that lead lasted less than a minute when Joe Riley equalised for the visitors.

Doncaster went ahead through Rowe when the winger smashed the ball home from the edge of the area.

Shrewsbury came straight forward from the restart and Riley beat Lawlor with a shot from the angle of the area.

Doncaster had much the better of the second half but it was Shrewsbury substitute Gnahoua that ensured the league leaders left with all three points, when he beat Marosi with a low left foot shot from the edge of the area.
