Doncaster 2-0 Crawley: Rovers end Reds' five-match winning run
Doncaster ended Crawley’s impressive winning run at five matches with a 2-0 triumph at the Eco-Power Stadium.
A Mo Faal strike and a Joe Ironside penalty saw Rovers through to a third win from their last four Sky Bet League Two outings.
Crawley started the brighter with Laurence Maguire forcing Louis Jones to tip over the crossbar from a powerful header.
Doncaster grew into the game when Owen Bailey drew a save from Corey Addai with a low strike. They took the lead after 27 minutes when Ironside pounced on a mistake and squared to Faal, who slotted home from 15 yards.
Faal almost doubled the advantage immediately when he met a Luke Molyneux free-kick with a header only to be denied by Addai. Molyneux hit the bar early in the second half with an in-swinging cross.
Rovers were gifted a second when Will Wright hauled down Joseph Olowu, presenting Ironside with the opportunity to smash in from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute.
Crawley pushed for a way back into the game, but were shut out well by the hosts.
