Jacob Ramsey strike earns play-off chasing Doncaster victory at MK Dons

Jacob Ramsey scored the only goal as Doncaster won 1-0 at MK Dons to boost their hopes of pushing into the League One play-off spots.

Ramsey struck midway through the second half as Rovers, who had lost their previous two away games, ended Dons’ three-game winning run at Stadium MK, with Russell Martin’s hosts rarely threatening.

Doncaster goalkeeper Seny Dieng got lucky inside six minutes when Dons midfielder David Kasumu nicked the ball from under his feet and found team-mate Alex Gilbey, who then failed to find the open goal with Dieng scrambling.

Darren Moore’s men went close after 55 minutes when Kieran Sadlier’s cross from the right found Niall Ennis at the back post, but he failed to keep his first-time effort down.

Rovers did find the opener 10 minutes later, though, when Ramsey met Jon Taylor’s cross with an emphatic right-footed finish from inside the box for his third goal since joining on loan from Aston Villa in January.

The visitors almost doubled their lead after 78 minutes when Sadlier’s effort was well saved before Rovers saw out the remaining minutes to win their third league game in five and keep their play-off hunt alive.
