And the visitors seemingly had one foot in the third round when Jay Simpson fired in the rebound after Tom Cairney's free kick came back off the bar on ten minutes.

But matchwinner Syers kickstarted what seemed an unlikely comeback when he scored a sensational 25-yard volley on the half hour, latching onto James Coppinger's knock down and lashing home a memorable strike.

Rovers came out for the second period all guns blazing and grabbed a deserved equaliser when Rob Jones glanced Tommy Spurr's cross into the far corner and out of the reach of Ben Amos.

Jones was then involved in a heated altercation with Paul McKenna which resulted in the Hull midfielder seeing red for kicking out at Rovers' captain.

And rampant Rovers had the last laugh when Syers ghosted into the box and diverted Coppinger's cross past Amos to cap a remarkable recovery.

The draw for the third round of the Capital One Cup will be made on Thursday evening.
