Most of the Doncaster Rovers squad are facing up to at least three weeks without competitive action after the suspension of the top four divisions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But, for now at least, not all will be out of action for that length of time.

Rovers currently have five players from the U23s group, all at clubs that were permitted to play this weekend.

The National League opted not to follow in the lead of the EFL and the Premier League, allowing matches to go ahead as planned where possible across their three divisions.

And further down the football pyramid, leagues continued as normal.

However, it was only forward Max Watters who received game time this weekend.

The 20-year-old played the full 90 minutes as Maidstone United suffered a 3-0 defeat to Eastbourne Borough in the National League South.

Watters had several chances to get Maidstone off the mark but was denied by Eastbourne keeper Franco Ravizzoli.

Chorley, where Alex Kiwomya is on loan, postponed their trip to Bromley in the National League Premier over concerns a member of the staff at the club may have Covid-19.

Shane Blaney is with Blyth Spartans, who saw their trip to Gloucester City postponed by the hosts who have suspected cases at the club which have seen some players embark on self-isolation.

Rian McLean was scheduled to feature for Pickering Town only for opponents City of Liverpool to postpone the game with a player currently self-isolating.

Rieves Boocock joined Tadcaster Albion on loan this week but was not involved in their 4-2 defeat to Workington.
