Doncaster Rovers must get their act together sharpish if they are to mount a play-off push with time running out.

Rovers’ hopes of a top-seven finish are hanging by a thread after three wins from four left them nine points off the play-offs heading into today’s match at home to AFC Wimbledon.

The Dons have no win in seven and have lost their last three, but Tuesday’s victors over Doncaster, Harrogate Town, came to the Eco-Power Stadium on a similar run.

LIVE: Doncaster Rovers v AFC Wimbledon

Key Events

  • Game ON following pitch inspection on Saturday morning after freezing conditions overnight
  • Doncaster have lost three of their last four, while Dons are winless in seven with three defeats in their last three
  • Time running out for Danny Schofield’s side in their play-off push

Wimbledon free-kick is cleared only as far as Janneh, who hits a sweet strike from the edge of the box that appears to be going in only for Ethan Chislett two yards out and fly over the bar. An almighty let-off.

For wasting time presumably. Can’t be long left.

Another opportunity for Wimbledon to equalise but Sam Pearson fires over from eight yards.

Fourth change for the Dons

Saikou Janneh is on for their goalscorer Josh Davison.

Captain Alex Woodyard makes way for Sam Pearson.

Big chance for Wimbledon

Ethan Chislett gets past several Doncaster players and space opens up for him as he runs into the box. He fires straight at Mitchell, however. Really should have done better.

Aaron Pierre makes way for Chris Gunter.

Another Mitchell save

He’s improved since that first-half howler and saves Davison’s half-volley from distance.
