Doncaster 2-1 Barnsley: Chaplow leaves it late
Last Updated: 03/10/15 8:28pm
Richard Chaplow struck late to give Doncaster a 2-1 win over South Yorkshire neighbours Barnsley and earn Rob Jones his first victory as interim boss in Sky Bet League One.
Chaplow smashed in at the near post on the stroke of full-time as to deliver a win at the fifth attempt for Jones, who hopes to secure the job on a permanent basis.
Visitors Barnsley had arguably been the better side and were unlucky to go behind after 35 minutes when on-loan Crystal Palace forward Keshi Anderson got the slightest of touches on Chaplow's low centre to give Rovers the lead.
Barnsley had dominated possession in the run-up to the opening goal and did so after the break, grabbing a deserved equaliser after 60 minutes.
It was all too simple for Sam Winnall, who dropped off his marker to head past Thorsten Stuckmann from Conor Hourihane's corner.
Rovers rallied and the game was anyone's as full-time approached.
But after latching onto a fine through ball from Harry Middleton, Chaplow struck to secure the points.
