Doncaster 2-0 QPR

Doncaster continued their fine recent form with victory at home against QPR.

The home team took an early lead thanks to a mix-up in the QPR defence, Damion Stewart heading Matthew Mills' long pass over Radek Cerny into his own net.

They doubled their lead when Paul Heffernan headed in after Martin Woods' corner was flicked on.

Heffernan had another shot saved before Rovers' Neil Sullivan saved well from Samuel di Carmine twice and also Ramone Rose and Wayne Routledge.

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll:

"I think we've put the demons of Saturday behind us and responded in the right way.

"We were playing against a wide which arguably should be in a better position than they are but I thought we controlled it from start to finish almost.

"I thought they didn't really know how to cope with us at times."

QPR manager Paulo Sousa:

"It's not a nice moment for us. It's a difficult moment because each mistake we make we are being penalised for.

"Until the moment they scored the first goal we controlled the game. And then you get a little bit down, you concede the second goal also with another mistake and then it's difficult.

"If you want to achieve the project of the board - the Premier League - you need players who have a lot of personality. It's a good moment to analyse that."
