Doncaster had knocked Hallam out of the National Cup with relative ease last month but a more structured visiting team posed more problems on this occasion, threatening the hosts on the break.

However, some prolonged spells of possession provided some fantastic opportunities on goal for in-form Doncaster.

The home side went two goals up before Sheffield halved the deficit to make things nervy - before a third goal wrapped up the points and kept Doncaster at the top of the table.

They travel to Chester on Saturday hoping to maintain their excellent form.
