Doncaster came from behind to beat MK Dons at the Keepmoat Stadium.Goals from John Marquis and Matty Blair helped the hosts turns the tables in the second half after the visitors went in front after just three minutes through Chuks Aneke.Rodney Kongolo missed his attempted clearance from George Williams’ cross, allowing Aneke to take a touch and rifle past Ian Lawlor from the edge of the box.

Doncaster, hurting from a 3-0 mauling at Wigan in midweek, looked incredibly panicky and were lucky to not fall further behind with Kieran Agard, Alex Gilbey and Aneke all seeing chances saved by Lawlor while Scott Golbourne smashed back off the inside of the post.But Doncaster were a different side in the second half, spurred on by the introduction of young forward Alfie Beestin who had a hand in both of their goals.First he headed towards goal from a corner with Marquis flicking the ball over the line on 54 minutes.And then Beestin squared a pass to Blair who slotted through Lee Nicholls’ legs from close range to complete the turnaround on 71 minutes.Report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsDoncaster1Lawlor8Mason15Wright6Butler20Garratt12WhitemanSubstituted forBaudryat 90+2’minutes16HoughtonSubstituted forBlairat 65’minutes7KongoloSubstituted forBeestinat 45’minutes26Coppinger10Rowe9MarquisSubstitutes5Baudry13Marosi14Mandeville17Blair18Toffolo22Beestin27Ben KhemisMK Dons1Nicholls2Williams5Wootton19Ebanks-LandellBooked at 86mins12Golbourne26GilbeyBooked at 90mins18McGrandlesSubstituted forNesbittat 79’minutes6UpsonSubstituted forSeagerat 74’minutes11Pawlett10Aneke14AgardSubstituted forThomas-Asanteat 74’minutesSubstitutes4Walsh7Ariyibi13Sietsma15Seager21Nesbitt25Brittain31Thomas-AsanteReferee:Eddie IldertonAttendance:7,743Match StatsHome TeamDoncasterAway TeamMK DonsPossessionHome63%Away37%ShotsHome13Away15Shots on TargetHome6Away6CornersHome7Away1FoulsHome12Away19Live TextPosted at Match ends, Doncaster Rovers 2, MK Dons 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Doncaster Rovers 2, MK Dons 1.Posted at 90’+5′ Foul by Alfie Beestin (Doncaster Rovers).Posted at 90’+5′ Peter Pawlett (MK Dons) wins a free kick on the right wing.BookingPosted at 90’+4′ Alex Gilbey (MK Dons) is shown the yellow card for a bad foul.Posted at 90’+4′ John Marquis (Doncaster Rovers) wins a free kick on the right wing.Posted at 90’+4′ Foul by Peter Pawlett (MK Dons).Posted at 90’+3′ Mathieu Baudry (Doncaster Rovers) wins a free kick in the attacking half.Posted at 90’+3′ Foul by Chuks Aneke (MK Dons).Posted at 90’+3′ Attempt missed.
