West Brom   3 - 1   Doncaster

West Brom v Doncaster

West Brom 3-1 Doncaster

West Brom battled back from going a goal behind to beat Doncaster and move to the top of the Championship table.

Waide Fairhurst gave the visitors an early lead finding the bottom left of the net from six yards.

Jonas Olsson equalised soon after, heading Graham Dorrans' cross past keeper Neil Sullivan from close range.

Olsson later headed West Brom into the lead with Dorrans again the provider before Chris Woods sealed it with a stunning strike from 25-yards out.


West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo:
"I am happy about three things: three points, two goals from set-pieces and Chris Wood's stunning goal.

"We still have a lot of work to do. But we are still winning in the meantime.

"We showed good character to come back from a goal behind for the second successive game but giving early goals away makes your life more difficult."

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll:

"Albion are a quality side but I thought we had a really good go at it.

"I didn't want to come here and defend for 90 minutes because Albion are too good a team. They are arguably the best team in the league.

"We can take the positives out of the game as this is a difficult division for us. When we come to places like this we use it as a challenge."
