  • Game set to kick-off at 7pm in 34C heat
  • Doncaster have won all four of their pre-season friendlies so far
  • Rotherham thumped Rovers’ 6-0 and 5-0 in league and cup last season

Another good shift for Rovers, who more than held their own against Championship opposition.

It might be pre-season but it’s worth remembering they’ve been leathered 5-0 and 6-0 by the same opposition in the last 12 months.

Even if Rotherham weren’t at their best, tonight was still an improvement.

George Miller gets the award after his double. That’s five goals in five pre-season matches for him now.

Not bad at all, even if it is pre-season.

Two more Rovers subs

And they’re probably coming at the right time. Energy levels have understanably dropped in the last 10 minutes and Rotherham are getting on top.

Jack Degruchy and Liam Ravenhill are on for Kyle Hurst and Harrison Biggins. Good shift from both tonight.

‘Sign him up’ sing the South Stand as Hurst leaves the pitch.

Huge chance for Rotherham

They’ve really come into this and get another cross into the box from the left-hand side. George Kelly connects but heads wide when he should hit the back of the net.

Rovers have got away with one there.

Chance for Rovers now

The noise levels go up a few decibels after Hurst wins a corner following a Rovers counter-attack. Comes to nothing, however.

The best bit of play we’ve seen from Rotherham all night results in the equaliser. Kioso gets the better of his man out wide and finds Kelly in the box, who finishes through Mitchell’s legs. Good goal. Rovers undone by a moment of quality from their Championship opponents.

Charlie Seaman coming on

He replaces Younger at right-back.

Good display from Younger tonight.

Younger in the wars again

He collides with Peter Kioso so hard in a 50/5 it takes the latter’s headband off. Back on his feet now - and even gets and arm round the shoulder from referee Andy Madley!

Another drinks break. Just over 15 minutes to go. Would be another impressive performance and result if Rovers can see this out.

Double switch for Doncaster

Josh Andrews and Kieran Agard replace George Miller and Trialist B (Lee Tomlin).

Double change for Rotherham and first Rovers switch

Rathbone and the goalscorer Odoffin make way for Conor Washington and Jamie Lindsay.

Molyneux looks to be alright but has been replaced by Reo Giffiths.
