Tuesday 13 April 2021 21:14, UK

Burton put further daylight between themselves and the Sky Bet League One relegation zone with a convincing 3-0 win over beleaguered Doncaster.

Goals from Lucas Akins, Tom Hamer and Hayden Carter secured a third successive win for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side, while Rovers slumped to a fifth straight defeat.

The Brewers started brightly, with a Joe Powell free-kick forcing a good save from Ellery Balcombe.

It took Doncaster a while to settle but they began to look the more threatening. Burton goalkeeper Ben Garratt produced an excellent reflex save to keep out Tom Anderson’s close-range effort.

Hamer looped a header onto the crossbar as Burton went close before the break and they broke the deadlock after 59 minutes.
