This game came to life in the second half and Rovers keeper Andy Warrington kept his side alive with a string of saves.

First he turned a shot from Mark Jones on to a post and then, when Darren Ferguson lifted a free-kick into the box, he saw Stephen Roberts bundle the ball past the post.

Minutes later he had to pull off the save off his life when Stephen Roberts unleashed a 30-yard drive that he turned on to his post and away for a corner.

The two Roberts, Wrexham's Stephen and his brother, the Doncaster striker, Neil, had a few tussles during the afternoon.

Neil later said he thought Wrexham were fantastic considering their position in the relegation dogfight but confirmed he would be having a drink with his brother later and the household would be happy with the result.

A bubbly pitch caused many passes to go astray early on.

Doncaster had a narrow escape when Ferguson swung a corner into the goalmouth which Craig Morgan flicked on and Mark Albrighton headed off the line.

Rovers were in danger again when Chris Llewellyn crossed and Chris Armstrong missed from five yards out.

John Doolan might have done better for Doncaster when he shot straight at on loan keeper Ben Foster.

Then Michael McIndoe was about to shoot when Stephen Roberts came to the rescue for the home side.

The next chance to fell Gregg Blundell but his shot-cum-cross cleared the bar, and when McIndoe floated in a corner, Dennis Lawrence headed away to safety.

Blundell had a second chance with an angled drive following a corner but Steve Foster kept it out with a brilliant save.
