Doncaster Rovers could move into the top half of the League Two for the first time this season with victory against AFC Wimbledon.

Rovers return to league action at the Cherry Red Records Stadium this afternoon.

Despite boasting League Two’s best away record, Wimbledon have picked up just six points at home this term.

But there are signs their home form could be improving.

Key Events

  • Doncaster form (last five in all comps): W-L-W-D-W
  • Wimbledon form (last five in all comps): D-L-L-W-W

Mo Faal blazed over from a brilliant position in the dying seconds, a miss which sums up his side's day. Definitely one to forget.

Omar Bugiel is sent off for a second bookable offence - and receives a standing ovation from the home fans!

Wimbledon's Hus Biler is sent off for his second yellow card.

GOAL - 2-0 Wimbledon

Ali Al Hamadi doubles his side's lead with a shot from the edge of the box after capitalising on Tom Anderson's slip.

Let's see if there's a bit more attacking action in this half.

Kyle Hurst and Joe Ironside on

George Broadbent and Luke Molyneux are withdrawn.

Unlucky for Doncaster. Wimbledon scored on the stroke of HT with the game's first effort on target. Had George Broadbent not been wiped out trying to clear the ball, the visitors would have had another player in the box to defend the corner which led to the goal.

GOAL - Wimbledon score

Corner kick isn't cleared and Ali Al Hamadi taps the ball in from about two yards out. George Broadbent got wiped out trying to clear the initial delivery and is down receiving treatment.

Joe Ironside warming up

Wonder if he might come on at the break? Very little happening thus far from two teams who looked fairly even. Still yet to see an effort on target.

Or Griezmann, as someone sat in front has just referred to him as. Daft from the midfielder who is yellowed after blocking a free-kick in Wimbledon's half.
