Doncaster 0-4 Yeovil

Yeovil celebrated their promotion to the Football League with an emphatic rout of Doncaster Rovers at Belle Vue on Saturday.

The Glovers were certain of Division Three football before kick-off following Chester's 2-2 draw with Woking, but still turned in a superb display to dismantle a side who were challenging them for much of the season.

Yeovil took the lead after 23 minutes when Darren Way played a one-two with Kevin Gall before poking the ball past Andy Warrington.

The Glovers doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Warrington fouled Gavin Williams in the area and winger Michael McIndoe converted from the penalty spot.

Lee Johnson made it 3-0 just before the break in somewhat comical fashion.

Warrington was penalised for picking up a back-pass and while the Rovers defence argued with the referee, Gall took a quick free-kick on the edge of the six-yard area, leaving Johnson to tap the ball into the empty net.

Any remaining hope Doncaster had of gatecrashing the promotion party vanished three minutes after the restart when McIndoe played a ball over the top and Gall kept his head to slot home the fourth goal.

Rovers' top scorer Paul Barnes had a stoppage-time penalty saved by Chris Weale after Colin Pluck had fouled Tristram Whitman.

Doncaster: Warrington, Marples, Ryan, Foster, Morley, Goodman, Doolan, Ravenhill, Blunt, Green, Barnes. Subs: Whitman, Tierney, Nelson, Gill, Beech.

Yeovil: Weale, Skiverton, Pluck, O'Brien, McIndoe, Lindegaard, Way, Johnson, Williams, Gall, Jackson. Subs: Lockwood, Crittenden, Giles, Collis, El Kholti.

Referee: R Pollock (Liverpool)
