Doncaster 1-0 Cambridge Utd- Match Report

Last updated : 16 August 2016

John Marquis wins it for Doncaster against Cambridge

Doncaster sealed their first win of the campaign thanks to a 1-0 success over Cambridge.

John Marquis made amends for an early penalty miss by heading the only goal of the game for Rovers.

The victory was only a fourth in 2016 for Doncaster, while Cambridge remain winless this term.

Rovers were given a golden chance to open the scoring after 10 minutes when Marquis was felled in the box by Sean Long

Marquis stepped up to take the spot-kick but saw his blasted effort kept out by the legs of Will Norris.

Doncaster rallied from that setback with Andy Williams, Marquis and Tommy Rowe all kept at bay by the busy Norris.

Cambridge looked toothless in attack but were keeping the shop shut at the back.

Play was halted for around 10 minutes midway through the second half whilst a replacement assistant from the crowd was found.

Rovers responded well despite that needless distraction and after 74 minutes Marquis corrected his earlier mistake when he headed home Matty Blair's precise cross.
