League Two: Doncaster Rovers v Colchester United LIVE

Colchester win their first corner deep into first half stoppage time.

1-1

Six minutes of additional time at the end of the half.

1-1

Taylor makes no mistake this time. He is played through and keep his composure to fire a low show past Jones which arrows into the bottom corner.

1-1

Goal Doncaster 1-1 Colchester

Having provided the assist for Rovers' goal, Senior, who was on the end of that late tackle from Hopper earlier in the half, has to be replaced by Joseph Olowu. 1-0

Ohhhh Colchester should be level! But how is he not offside? The ball is scooped over the top for Joseph Taylor who is in acres of space and only has Louis Jones to beat but he takes the shot on first time and Jones saves. The fans were wanting the flag to be raised but the assistant ref kept it down. 1-0.

I have just seen a replay of the opening goal. Jack Senior's corner goes in off Zach Mitchell at the near post. It will go down as an own goal.

1-0.

Doncaster lead. The resulting corner from Smith's save somehow goes in at the near post! Not sure how but Rovers won't care! It's 1-0 and it's thoroughly deserved!

GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!

Great football all round! Donny are so close to opening the deadlock thanks to a fierce Maxwell drive but Smith tips it around for a corner. 0-0
