Doncaster 1 Burnley 0

An inspired performance from James Coppinger proved the catalyst in Doncaster’s 1-0 defeat of Burnley at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The 29-year-old was imperious throughout the npower Championship fixture and helped the home side end a run of four consecutive defeats, during which they conceded 13 goals.

After edging the encounter, Coppinger provided the decisive 59th-minute cross that Burnley’s Michael Duff could only divert into his own goal.

The Northern Irishman’s mishap ended the Clarets’ five-match unbeaten run and saw Eddie Howe taste defeat for the first time as manager of the Lancashire outfit.
