Norwich 2-1 Doncaster

Leroy Lita grabbed an injury-time winner as Norwich came from behind to condemn Doncaster to a sixth straight Championship away defeat.

Lita lashed home a volley from close range in the fourth minute of time added on to secure the win.

Rovers went ahead when Dejan Stefanovic hauled down Jason Price and Brian Stock netted from the penalty spot.

But Antoine Sibierski levelled with a looping header from Sammy Clingan's mis-hit shot and Lita won it late on.

Norwich manager Glenn Roeder told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"It was not a good performance, we're honest people, we admit to that, there's no one disputing that we didn't play well.

"The one thing I will not have anyone accusing us of is giving in because we kept going and that's why we won the game, because we didn't give in.

"I won't accept that we were lucky, what I will accept is that we didn't play well," he said.

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll:
"Norwich moved the ball about well in the first half and put us under pressure but we weathered the storm and we did really well in the second half.

"After we had got our noses in front I couldn't see Norwich getting back into the game unless there was a moment of brilliance or a slice of luck

"And unfortunately for us they got a lucky break."
