Preston 0-2 Doncaster

Preston 0-2 Doncaster

Preston   0 - 2   Doncaster

Goals in the first 20 minutes from James O'Connor and James Hayter proved enough for 10-man Doncaster to open their season with a win at Preston.

Defender O'Connor blasted past home goalkeeper Andy Lonergan for the lead.

And when Lonergan could only parry a Billy Sharp header, striker Hayter pounced to nod in the rebound.

Keith Treacy twice went close for North End after the break while Rovers lost debutant Simon Gillett to a second bookable offence with 12 minutes left.
