Manager Grant McCann felt his side were great value for their win after collecting their fourth Sky Bet League One win in a row with the 3-2 success at Plymouth Argyle.

John Marquis scored either side of a Matty Blair strike to secure a win in Devon against the Pilgrims and ensure Rovers stretched their unbeaten run in the league to seven.

"It's a good result and it was a great performance from us, we were excellent in the second half and should've had more than the three we did score - their keeper made some great saves and kept them in it throughout," McCann said.

"Even though we went ahead, we didn't start the game very well. I called them over when we scored and said that it wasn't good enough, but we stepped it up after the break and got our reward.

"The response after the break just showed the character the squad has, we did well to score and then score again, it's a good three points and we simply blew them away after the break."

Rovers' away win saw them rise to third in the league table, with Marquis also topping the goalscoring charts in the division, and McCann is pleased with the way his side have began life under his leadership.

"We're in a good place, we've got strength in depth , everyone in the team is pushing one another to get better and keep improving, I'm pleased with that and the attitude of the group," he added.

"There's belief, confidence and desire right through the team, we're seven unbeaten now and chasing down those above us - that's the desire we need to have. It's still early on in the season and we're not getting carried away, we're 10 games in and we've started well, but there are two teams that have started even better, so we're looking to hunt them down."

Rovers return to the Keepmoat Stadium to take on Fleetwood Town on Saturday October 6. Tickets are available from the Club Doncaster Box Office, on 01302 762576 or at
