Anderson nets twice as Doncaster brush aside struggling Fleetwood

Doncaster comprehensively swept aside Fleetwood 3-0 to compound the misery on Town boss Uwe Rosler.
On-loan Burnley defender Tom Anderson scored twice after Alex Kiwomya had opened the scoring as Rovers condemned the visitors and their under-fire manager to a seventh consecutive defeat in all competitions.
Doncaster, smarting from a 4-2 humbling at Walsall in midweek, went ahead after 13 minutes when Kiwomya marked his first start for the club with his first goal, poking in a John Marquis cross from close range.
Rovers were comfortable against a Fleetwood side bereft of confidence and doubled their advantage after 27 minutes when Anderson pounced on a parry from goalkeeper Alex Cairns to slot home.
Fleetwood offered very little in attack with their best effort coming from substitute Jordy Hiwula, who drew a fine save from Marko Marosi from close range.
It always seemed likely Doncaster would extend their lead and Alfie Beestin struck the post early in the second half.
But Rovers did find a third after 55 minutes when Anderson stooped to head in a fine cross from Tommy Rowe.
