TOP of the league Doncaster Rovers were celebrating like they’d won the league this afternoon.
Players gestured excitedly to fans at the Keepmoat after the 1-0 victory over a curiously uninspired Swindon Town.
The players knew the importance of three points at this time of the League One season - there was a strong feeling of Rovers “on the way up.”
Rovers had made two changes.
James Husband and Iain Hume both dropped to the bench, replaced by Dean Furman and Kyle Bennett
But it was Jamie McCombe who was the hero.
His late header at the back post handed his side a win over promotion rivals.
They could have score before half-time when defender Darren Ward cleared off the line after Aden Flint looped a David Cotterill cross towards his own goal.
And keeper Wes Foderingham was forced into a decent save from Chris Brown’s header.
On a poor surface, Rovers did more than enough to win.
And that’s what it’s all about as the clubs head down the final straight, with Rovers walking off the pitch five points clear.
