Doncaster picked up a fourth successive win as they beat Plymouth 2-0 to strengthen their grip on the final play-off berth in League One.
First-half goals from skipper Tommy Rowe and Danny Andrew proved enough to see off a battling Plymouth side who remain only three points above the relegation zone.
Doncaster started with plenty of energy and zip in their play and were rewarded with the opener just seven minutes in when Rowe turned onto a flick from James Coppinger and rifled into the top corner from 15 yards.
Coppinger and Mallik Wilks both forced saves from Plymouth goalkeeper Matt Macey before the visitors grew into the game, with Ruben Lameiras firing wide.
But Doncaster got the cushion they needed on the stroke of half-time when Andrew caught out Macey by smashing in at the near post from a free-kick from 35 yards.
Both sides exchanged chances in the second half with substitute Alfie May firing over when clear on goal for Doncaster while Lameiras drew a stunning one-handed save from Marko Marosi.
