Doncaster Rovers could set up a tie with manager Grant McCann’s old club if they beat Accrington Stanley in their FA Cup first round replay.

Doncaster looked to have booked their spot in the second round at the Eco-Power Stadium earlier this month when Harrison Biggins’ goal put them 2-1 ahead with under ten minutes to play.

But Accrington scored a late equaliser to force a replay.

The winner of tonight’s tie will play either McCann’s former employers Peterborough United or Salford City, who also require a replay.

Accrington Stanley v Doncaster Rovers

Key Events

  • Doncaster and Accrington couldn't be separated at the Eco-Power Stadium earlier this month as they drew 2-2
  • Rovers have lost on all four of their previous visits to the Wham Stadium

A great comeback from Grant McCann's side, who put in a big shift here in Lancashire. As it stands, they will play Salford City in round two.

Two minutes added on

Doncaster have the ball in Accrington's half. Not much happening in the dying moments.

Accrington players turning on each other

Jack Nolan and Matt Lowe need to be separated following a disagreement at the end of the first half of extra time. All settled now.

Doncaster almost go 3-1 ahead but Molyneux's shot is just wide.

GOAL - Doncaster lead!

Joe Ironside potentially grabs the winner after he turns home a cross from close range.

On: Ben Woods

Off: Seamus Conneely

Richard Wood almost wins it!

The big man has started extra time as a striker and latches onto a loose ball in the box, but his effort is charged down by Jon McCracken. Looked a little rusty with the finish...

He replaces Zain Westbrooke.

James Maxwell is waiting to come on but we have just kicked off.

Thirty minutes of extra time to come after a pulsating finish to the second half.

Just one other tie is still yet to be decided - Peterborough and Salford.
