Doncaster went goal-crazy in their vital clash with Preston in the Conference North last Sunday, rattling their opponents 5-1.

Five different Doncaster players got on the scoresheet in the rout, a win that moved the Town Field side five points clear of bottom side Preston.

Peter Bartlett opened the scoring after 24 minutes, before Samuel Sinclair’s equaliser.

Robert Peregrine restored Doncaster’s advantage after 56 minutes, and it was one-way traffic from there.

David Dykes’ penalty corner made it 3-1, and then two strikes in two minutes from Matt Gibson and captain Tim Shelley sealed the victory.

Similarly, Doncaster ladies firsts moved four points clear of basement club Cannock with a 2-1 win at Chase Park on Saturday.

Alice Courtney and Rachel Smart were on target for Doncaster. Nicola Martin pulled one back for Cannock.
