After a frustrating opening half-an-hour for both sides at Hillsborough, we almost went in front from the first meaningful attempt on goal.Rovers captain Rob Jones made a mess of Michail Antonio's cross from the right and the resultant loose ball fell to Atdhe Nuhiu eight yards out, only for the towering striker to divert his strike wide of Ross Turnbull's goal.We continued to have the better of the game and they had another chance to open the scoring three minutes before the break.Antonio burst forward on the counter-attack following a cleared Doncaster corner but his ball into the middle bounced too high for Jermaine Johnson and the Jamaican's acrobatic attempt was comfortably stopped by Turnbull.The visitors failed to have a shot on goal during the open 45 minutes and Jeremy Helan's injury time effort at the other end, which Turnbull easily saved, capped off an uneventful first period.Rovers finally mustered an effort at goal seven minutes into the second half when defender Jones headed wide from Paul Keegan's right-wing free-kick.We began to reaffirm our first-half superiority and, after winger Johnson had a header cleared off the line, Miguel Llera's back-post header, from Stephen McPhail's cross, was brilliantly turned behind by keeper Turnbull in the 63rd minute.Macheda was then denied by Kirkland after he wriggled clear in the box and shot from an acute angle.The Italian did not have to wait long for another chance, though, and duly headed the only goal of the game 19 minutes from time.Midfielder Richie Wellens came close to doubling the away side's advantage five minutes from the end but his low effort was saved by Kirkland and scrambled away.We pushed in vain for an equaliser and almost conceded a second when keeper Kirkland went forward for a corner
