Doncaster Rovers dropped more late points as Oldham Athletic held them to a 1-1 draw.

Just a week after conceding a 96th minute winner at Oxford United, Eoin Doyle equalised with just two minutes remaining to cancel out an Andy Butler goal for Doncaster.

In a tight first half, both sides went close to opening the scoring. Andy Butler cleared a Gevaro Nepomuceno off the line after Tope Obadeyi had run nearly the full length of the pitch with the ball to set him up.

Alfie May had Doncaster`s best chance when he got in behind the Oldham defence but he was denied by a superb save by Johnny Placide.

Butler headed Doncaster ahead just before the hour when he lost his marker at a free-kick and his powerful header went in off the underside of the crossbar.

Doyle equalised for Oldham in the closing moments when he steered home after Adam Holloway had headed towards goal.
