Doncaster   4 - 3   Scunthorpe

Doncaster 4-3 Scunthorpe

Doncaster 4-3 Scunthorpe

Shelton Martis headed a late winner for Doncaster as they defeated local rivals Scunthorpe in a thrilling game.

Gary Hooper fired Scunthorpe ahead early on, but loanees Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Jordon Mutch responded to put Rovers in front at the break.

Paul Hayes got the visitors back on level terms, only for James Hayter to quickly restore Doncaster's advantage.

Hooper turned in his second in the 84th minute but there was still time for Martis to nod in a Dean Shiels corner.


Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll:
"If the two teams played like that all season we'd not be in this division, we would be relegated.

"It might have been a great spectacle for people to watch, which is fair enough at the end of the season.

"And there was some great attacking play at times, but there was also some comical defending from both teams."

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins:
"Therein lies the story of our season. We've scored some great goals again, but unfortunately we've conceded four very poor goals from our point of view.

"I don't want to take anything away from the great achievement by the players (in staying up following the midweek draw with Reading).

"But we're bitterly disappointed with the goals we've conceded."
