Marquis at the double for Doncaster as relegation looms for MK Dons

John Marquis scored twice as Doncaster came from behind to salvage a 2-1 win over MK Dons - who slipped four points adrift of safety.
Rovers were a goal behind when Ike Ugbo netted for the Dons early on before Marquis found the net twice in the second-half to complete an impressive turnaround for the visitors, as MK Dons suffered their third straight defeat.
MK Dons did take a deserved lead in the 19th minute after George Williams found Chuks Aneke on the edge of the box. He took the ball down and played strike partner Ugbo through on goal before the Chelsea loanee slotted home.
But Doncaster found a leveller four minutes into the second half when keeper Wieger Sietsma parried Alex Kiwomya's shot straight into the path of Marquis, who easily tapped home his 13th of the season.
The visitors completed the turnaround just after the hour when James Coppinger sailed through the MK midfield unchallenged before finding Tommy Rowe, who crossed to the unmarked Marquis inside the box before he tapped home to officially secure Darren Ferguson's side's League One status next season.
