Doncaster 1-1 Gillingham: Darren Moore and Steve Evans draw first game
Last Updated: 03/08/19 7:14pm
A superb volley from Doncaster's Kieran Sadlier ensured the battle of new bosses Darren Moore and Steve Evans ended in a 1-1 draw.
Alex Jakubiak had given Gillingham the lead midway through a positive first half for Steve Evans' side.
But that was before Sadlier's impressive strike on the stroke of half-time to level things up for Doncaster in their first game of Darren Moore's tenure.
The visitors made the better start against a disjointed Rovers outfit, with Regan Charles-Cook and Brandon Hanlan both twice going close to breaking the deadlock.
But Gillingham finally got the breakthrough on the half hour when Hanlan's flick-on put Mikael Ndjoli through on the right and he squared to Jakubiak to slam home.
Doncaster had struggled for opportunities throughout the first half but changed the mood at the Keepmoat in stoppage time.
James Coppinger clipped an excellent ball forward which Sadlier caught sweetly on the volley and rifled past Jack Bonham.
Rovers were the brighter side in the second half with Alfie May going close on several occasions but deadlock remained.
