Result: Doncaster Rovers edge past Leeds United

Doncaster Rovers pick up a rare win on the road by seeing off Leeds United 2-1 at Elland Road in the Championship.

Doncaster Rovers have picked up a rare win on the road by seeing off Leeds United 2-1 at Elland Road in the Championship.

The visitors went ahead with 23 minutes on the clock through David Cotterill, who found the back of the net with his effort from just inside the box.

Leeds looked to pull one back and nearly did so when Ross McCormack delivered a dangerous free kick across the six-yard box, but none of his teammates could get on the end of it.

On the brink of half time Billy Sharp doubled Rovers' lead, finishing off a fine passing move from Paul Dickov's side.

The hosts were right back in the contest shortly after the hour mark when McCormack turned the ball home following a Danny Pugh free kick.

Leeds pushed for an equalising goal but they were unable to find a way past Sam Johnstone for a second time, as Doncaster held out for their first away win in 16 attempts.
