League Two: Doncaster Rovers v Colchester United LIVE

GOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!

Olowu is now booked for a challenge on halfway.

1-1

Tom Smith steams out of his goal and collides with Faal outside the box. Just a yellow for the U's keeper.

1-1

Intricate. That's the word. Donny don't go for goal, instead they play a couple of delicate passes before getting the ball into the box before it goes out of play.

1-1

The free kick is swung in but there is a foul off the ball and Rovers have another set piece just outside the box. What a chance this is for Rovers to regain the lead.

1-1

Tasty start to the second half with a few tackles going in. One too many for the referee's liking though and a United player - Mitchell - enters the book.

1-1

Rovers get the second half under way, kicking from left to right as we see it in the West Stand.

1-1

Rovers took the lead in the 33rd minute after Jack Senior's corner went in off the unfortunate Zach Mitchell. But immediately after Senior was subbed off after sustaining an injury earlier in the half, Joseph Taylor levelled for Colchester. The visitors could have even led by the end of the half but Louis Jones produced a brilliant double save to deny Taylor and Mitchell.

And there goes the half time whistle. A game that came into life towards the end of the first half.

What a double save from Jones! First Taylor from the edge of the box after the corner isn't cleared and then the keeper is up quickly to deny Mitchell. Brilliant reflexes!

1-1
