Doncaster Rovers ended their run of six games without a win in League One with a comprehensive win at Plymouth Argyle.

Goals from Andy Butler, John Marquis and Alfie May ensured that Doncaster left Devon with all three points in a 3-0 win.

Butler put Doncaster ahead on 19 minutes when he was on hand to head home after May had seen his effort come back off the crossbar.

Marquis doubled the lead just before the hour when the striker was on hand to fire home after Luke McCormick could only parry Joe Wright and May efforts.

May capped a fine Doncaster display with the third on 73 minutes when he steered the ball home.

A bad afternoon was made worse for Plymouth with ten minutes remaining when Sonny Bradley was shown a straight red card after an altercation with Butler.
