Grimsby, who sit 15th in the League Two table, would leapfrog Rovers in the standings should they secure a victory today.

Paul Hurst’s men are without a win in their last five league games following their FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Brighton.

The Mariners became the first team in FA Cup history to eliminate five teams from a higher division en route to the sixth round.

Team news to follow at 2pm.

LIVE: Doncaster Rovers v Grimsby Town

Morris hits one from distance but it’s straight at Mitchell.

Nelson’s down injured after a heavy fall. Looks quite nasty.

He’ll be stretchered off and replaced by Williams.

No changes at the break.

Well, by recent standards, that’s been pretty enjoyable.

Refreshing to see Rovers getting the ball forward quicker, getting Grimsby on the back foot.

And a stunning goal from Barlow too.

A couple more tennis balls on the pitch now. The stewards in the South Stand are trying to identify who is responsible.

The game’s going on and Westbrooke fizzes a speculative effort just wide.

The game is temporarily stopped

A couple of tennis balls have been thrown onto the pitch from the South Stand, who then break out into chants of ‘Sack the board’.

Close strikes from the edge of the box and it comes off the bar! Unlucky.

Green’s cross from the right almost catches Mitchell out but Rovers’ goalkeeper tips it over the bar.

Barlow - with a screamer!

Nice touch from Westbrooke and Barlow curls a superb effort into the top corner.

Midway point in first half

Not a great deal to report in terms of goalmouth incident.

Rovers are definitely mixing it up a bit though, in terms of their build-up play, and Agard’s offered a presence up top.
