Doncaster Rovers maintained their unbeaten festive programme with an injury time equaliser at Peterborough United.

Ben Whiteman scored in the third minute of injury time in the 1-1 draw as Doncaster picked up ten points out of a possible twelve over the festive period.

Doncaster looked to be heading for a defeat after Danny Lloyd had fired Peterborough into a first half lead. Lloyd was teed up by Ryan Tafazolli following a Marcus Maddison free-kick.

Lloyd almost doubled the lead for the hosts but Ian Lawlor in the Doncaster goal denied him and Chris Forrester saw his long-range effort come back off a post.

Doncaster threw men forward in the closing stages. John Marquis saw an effort saved by Jonathan Bond and Alfie May should have done better with a headed chance.

Whiteman ensured Doncaster came away with something as he netted for the second game in a row when he fired home after May had seen his shot blocked.
