DONCASTER Rovers made it six points from their opening two games for the first time since the 2003-04 season by beating Bury 2-1 in last night’s League One clash at the Keepmoat Stadium.

It was also the first time this year that they had come from behind to win a league game.

Rovers fell behind after five minutes from a corner, but hit back with a goal by former Bury forward Kyle Bennett with striker Chris Brown grabbing a late winner.

“I told the players at half-time that if we kept it going we’d get a second,” said Rovers’ boss Dean Saunders.

“Chris Brown will get the plaudits, and rightly so, but it was a great team effort. We dug a result out tonight.

“I’m delighted, but it’s not until after six games that you know where you really stand.But we played some great football at times.”

James Coppinger again started on the bench but Saunders said that didn’t indicate he wouldn’t be featuring in his long-term plans. “I didn’t want to change a winning side,” said the Welshman, who said that Hull had not yet come back with an offer for the winger.

“I hope he stays,” said Saunders.
