Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov spoke to Rovers Player after his sides 2-1 victory against Leeds United.

In what was only the clubs second away victory of the season, a win at Elland Road stretched back to 2008.

David Cotterill's super strike sent Rovers on their way, before Billy Sharp completed a super move, which involved 28 passes in the build up.

The win moves Doncaster eight points away from the relegation zone.

Dickov said: "I'm delighted, it was tough at the end but I thought first half we were outstanding.

"We got the ball down, we passed it, we pressed when it was right to do it, we defended well and scored two wonderful goals.

"David's strike was top drawer and the passing and movement for the second goal showed everybody what we are all about."

The Doncaster boss admitted that things were different in the second half as Leeds tried to claw their way back into the match.

But Dickov was quick to praise the effort of his players to deny them that opportunity.

"Second half it was different, you have to give credit to Leeds, they pilled the pressure on us and their fans got right behind them, which is a credit to them, but we defended magnificently to get the three points.

The Doncaster boss also thanked the Rovers continued away support for sticking with his side throughout the season.

"It was fantastic, that win was for the fans, they have travelled with us up and down the country and have been disappointed more often than not, we dedicate that to them."
