Doncaster collected a fourth straight league triumph on home soil with a comfortable 4-1 win over Sutton.

Joe Ironside scored twice, including a first-half penalty, while Zain Westbrooke and Mo Faal also found the net for Grant McCann’s side with Harry Smith replying for the visitors in stoppage time.

Rovers were gifted the lead after 17 minutes when Craig Clay fouled Faal in the box and Ironside drilled into the top corner from the penalty spot.

Doncaster goalkeeper Louis Jones was forced into a smart save from Smith after he latched onto a long ball but it was a moment of rare threat from the visitors.

Ironside doubled the lead after 52 minutes when he flicked home a cross from Owen Bailey, quelling a lively start to the second half from Sutton.

Westbrooke increased the advantage after 63 minutes as he followed up with a low 15-yard drive after his initial effort hit the post.

Faal rounded off the scoring for Doncaster four minutes later when turning home at the near post.

Smith scored a consolation header for Sutton with the last act of the game.
