League One Guide - Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster triumphed in the JPT by beating Bristol Rovers, but their cup exploits cost them dear in their promotion battle last season. Most expected them to be involved in the shake up but they fell someway short.

This season will be their first full season at their impressive Keepmoat Stadium and the signings of experienced trio Hayter, Wellens and Sullivan plus the exciting Martin Woods should ensure that they are one of the hot favourites this time round.

The incoming players are all good additions to an already decent squad. They need to win more games at home, only eight home victories last season. If they can make the Keepmoat a fortress then promotion should be on the cards for the Yorkshire based club.

Player`s in - Jamie Hayter, Ritchie Wellens, Martin Woods and Neil Sullivan
Player`s out - Sean Thornton

Ohh, 1st. Controversial. Made some good signings, not sure if they have a good enough manager though....

Just signed a central defender from kilmarnock. Have a very strong squad this season just need no injuries.

Crewe Alexandra managed to give supporters a long-awaited victory in their final home game of the season against Doncaster Rovers.

Davis happy with finale

Manager Steve Davis was happy and doubtless very relieved to witness Crewe Alexandra complete their home programme with a 3-1 victory against Doncaster Rovers.

Crewe recover for victory

Crewe Alexandra came from behind for a first win in sixteen games and to drag Doncaster Rovers down into League Two with them for next season.

Kick-off was delayed by half-an-hour due to a waterlogged playing surface and Tommy Rowe gave the visitors the lead through a deflected strike.

However, youngster Callum Ainley equalised with his first senior goal before the break and Marcus Haber and substitute Brad Inman added second-half efforts.

Callum Saunders shot wide early on
