Rovers might still need other results to go their way if they beat Burton Albion at the Eco-Power Stadium tonight (7pm kick-off).

Three points would help their chances – they could even lose and still qualify – but goal difference may decide who progresses.

Should already-eliminated Everton Under-21s avoid defeat against Mansfield, a win would see Doncaster qualify from Group H tonight.

Bez Lubala rifles home from the edge of the box.

Everton Under-21s have won at Mansfield, meaning Doncaster will qualify for the round of 32 tonight if they win.

Harrison Biggins booked

Maybe that was a pantomine audition - he looked to have lost control of the ball and went looking for a foul inside the box.

Kyle Hurst grabs his first goal of the season from close range.

Chance for Doncaster!

Kyle Hurst sees his shot from the edge of the box tipped around the post by Jamal Blackman.

Three changes for Doncaster at the break

On: Zain Westbrooke, Tom Anderson, Tom Nixon

Off: James Maxwell, Richard Wood, Jack Goodman

Not bad from Doncaster. Job done in the first half. They weren’t brilliant but they do have the lead and have restricted a higher-division side to little.
