League Two: Doncaster Rovers v Colchester United LIVE

Faal goes close again! The corner isn't cleared and Faal tries an acrobatic attempt which whistles wide. 0-0

Great pressure from Rowe and Donny have their second corner of the night

So close for Rovers. Tom Nixon does magnificently down the right and his cross is perfect for Mo Faal but the loanee from West Brom can't keep his header down. Bright start from the home side but still 0-0.

Colchester break from the corner, Rovers half clear before Chay Cooper has the game's first shot in anger but he blazes over from 30 yards.

The early Rovers pressure continues. First corner is won early doors.

0-0

Owen Bailey drives at the United defence and slips a pass into Tommy Rowe on the left but his enticing cut-back finds a yellow shirt and the early danger is cleared

0-0

We are off and running!

In honour of Terry Venables

We have just had a minute's applause for the late, great Terry Venables who sadly passed away at the weekend.

The teams are out!

Last time these two met

The last time these two met was at the Eco-Power Stadium in April - with Tommy Rowe netting the only goal for Rovers in a 1-0 win.
