Cheltenham 0-1 Doncaster- Match Report

Last updated : 20 August 2016

John Marquis goal gives Doncaster victory at winless Cheltenham

John Marquis scored his second goal of the season to earn Doncaster a 1-0 Sky Bet League Two victory at Cheltenham, where he was once on loan.

The former Millwall man struck in the 53rd minute after James Coppinger's pass and it was enough to earn Darren Ferguson's men their second win of the campaign.

Doncaster dominated most of the first half with Andy Williams forcing a fine save from on-loan Everton goalkeeper Russell Griffiths in the 16th minute.

Cheltenham relied heavily on counter-attacks, with Harry Pell setting up James Dayton for a chance which he curled just wide and Billy Waters forcing Marko Marosi into an one-handed stop before the break.

Cheltenham improved in the second half, bidding to protect an unbeaten home record stretching back to last September when they were beaten 1-0 by Tranmere in the National League.

Koby Arthur saw a shot blocked on the edge of the box and the on-loan Birmingham forward also sliced a shot wide of the near post - but Cheltenham are still waiting for their first win since returning to the EFL.
