Two goal hero Reece James was the name on the lips of the majority of Rovers fans afterwards.

Here we bring a selection of the reaction from supporters on social media.

@JohnLeslieCoyl1: A deserved win. Not a great game but a class performance from Reece James. Just praying that Josh Sims' injury is a minor one.

Reece James fires in his second goal against Swindon Town. Picture: Howard Roe/AHPIX

@pgjackson1: One where we did enough rather than blow the opposition away. But they deserve some credit for that as well. Reece James proving an inspired choice further forward. Never a penalty at the end

@claretimms2: Reece James was on fire. Doncaster are like watching the greatest show love being a rovers fan onto Saturday

@dealerboy_6: Lumley deserved a clean sheet. Swindon miles better than Gillingham. James on fire. Sims injury hopefully nothing serious. Table looking well

@JMickAndrews: Swindon us asked a lot of questions, but great goalkeeping, solid defending and a slice of luck kept them out over 96 mins. JJ looked isolated, but his play up front left the gaps that twinkle-toes James exploited. Taylor and Richards did well as subs but Sims will be a big loss.

@Markhughes82: Solid performance again looking like a top L1 side only worry is how long Sims out he’s been quality since he arrived .

@glosterred: Another good day at the office for the Rovers, a deserved win

@10Sbailey: Reece James For England. Joking about.. Another quality pefronance going from strength to Strength Long May it Continue

@SteveGr41417727: Good solid performance, well deserved win...... Shame about the poor penalty decision.

@aaron_challoner: Reece James is the next Cafu, Swindon had their moments and overall, we did end up deserving the three points. I'm keeping my excitement grounded but I have a serious gut feeling we'll play Arsenal in the Championship next season!

@W1LDE: Confidence is growing, the sky is the limit!

@nigelwalkden: Thought we were average but 3points

@HenryWoodNew: Deserved to be a more comfortable scoreline, table is starting to shape up nicely but losing Sims before the Christmas schedule would be a huge blow
