ROB Jones had a difficult start to his career at Doncaster Rovers tonight, but his new team still beat Hull City 3-1.
The former Sheffield Wednesday captain scored an own goal to give Hull a lead in their friendly at the Keepmoat stadium.
The score remained 0-1 at half time.
In the second half Rovers took their east Yorkshire neighbours to task, Martin Woods bringing his team level.
