Yeovil boss Gary Johnson was content with a point at Doncaster, despite his side's eight-match winning streak coming to an end.
The automatic promotion contenders contested a 1-1 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium but the hosts will feel they should have clinched a first win in five games after dominating for long periods.
A blunder by Rovers goalkeeper Gary Woods gifted the Glovers the lead in the sixth minute when he fumbled a free-kick from Jamie McAllister and Paddy Madden popped up to slam home his 19th goal of the season - and his 11th in the last eight games.
Billy Paynter grabbed a deserved equaliser for Doncaster on the stroke of half-time.
"We got the goal early and we always knew Doncaster would come back at us," said Johnson. "When you get used to winning like we have you are always disappointed when the run comes to an end. But we can't be too unhappy that we've come to one of our main promotion rivals and gone away with a point.
"It wasn't a classic game of football but, in a sense, it was a match between two teams that couldn't afford to lose.
"The pitch didn't help matters because both teams normally like to play football, but we showed we can adapt and we produced the workrate required not to get beat when they came at us in the second half."
Doncaster have now gone a handful of games without a league win but boss Brian Flynn believes the performance against Yeovil will prove to be a turning point for hi side.
He said: "I think the revival has started with this. We didn't start the game well but we showed a lot of character to drag ourselves back into it and I think we've turned a corner. We dominated the second half and should definitely have had a penalty. I think everyone in the ground thought it was a penalty apart from the referee.
"But we missed a couple of golden opportunities as well which we would normally have taken. Apart from that, I'm pleased with the performance individually and collectively against a really good team. If we maintain that standard we will be okay."
