Doncaster held on to secure an entertaining 3-2 win over Cheltenham and climb off the foot of the Sky Bet League One table.
Donny started the stronger and made it count when taking a 23rd-minute lead. Ethan Galbraith’s long ball forward was brought down superbly by Joe Dodoo, who lashed a shot in from 18 yards.
Rovers doubled their advantage in second-half stoppage time when skipper Tom Anderson powered in a header from a John Bostock corner.
Doncaster continued to enjoy the better of play from start of the second period and grabbed a third when Rodrigo Vilca latched onto a Ben Close pass, cut inside and lashed a shot into the far corner.
Cheltenham were offered a way back into the game when given a penalty for a handball from Galbraith but Liam Sercombe saw his spot-kick saved by Pontus Dahlberg while Alfie May struck a post with his follow-up.
But the visitors did pull a goal back when Alfie May hooked in from close range in the 68th minute.
Andy Williams then ensured a nervy finish when heading home from a corner in stoppage time.
