Yeovil manager Gary Johnson believes his side are a dangerous match for anyone in League One after their 2-1 victory over Doncaster.

Second-half goals from ex-Rovers striker James Hayter and substitute Gozie Ugwu secured the home side's third consecutive League One victory to continue their impressive unbeaten start to the season.

Hayter, who joined the Glovers in the summer after five years at the Keepmoat Stadium, broke the deadlock after 55 minutes to set the hosts on their way to an impressive win at Huish Park. Billy Paynter scored a consolation for Rovers but it was too little, too late.

Johnson said: "We'll see where the teams we've already played end up at the end of the season, but for now people will certainly be talking about us as being a dangerous team at this level.

"It's too early to start dreaming but we've got to enjoy the performances and results and try to get a few more people through the gate. We're in the top two which is absolutely fantastic.

Doncaster manager Dean Saunders was naturally disappointed with defeat but urged his side to learn from the setback.

He said: "I thought we did well first half and controlled the game.

"Yeovil are always dangerous on the break and when you're trying to thread passes through the eye of a needle and they aren't getting through you're always going to be in danger of getting caught on the break.

"I felt quite comfortable at half-time and told the players they were going to come at us in the second half. Unfortunately they went and got an early goal.

"It was a bad day for us but we've got to take the positives out of it. We need to get more shots on goal and with the amount of ball we had we need to conjure more chances up. I don't think we were clever enough here to make the openings."
