Rovers reached the fifth round of the world’s oldest cup competition during Grant McCann’s first spell in charge and the fourth round in the 2020/21 season.

But the last two years has seen them slip up against lower-level opposition.

Last term they exited the competition at the first-round stage when they were beaten 1-0 at home to National League North outfit King's Lynn Town.

The year before, Doncaster, then in League One, were beaten 3-2 at home to Mansfield Town.
