Seven minutes added on

GOAL - Accrington equalise

Substitute Seamus Conneely sweeps the ball home from a corner. His run seemed to catch the defence out.

A screamer from Harrison Biggins!

He was hurt in the build-up to the goal and is replaced by James Maxwell.

GOAL - Accrington score again

This time there’s no complaints as Shaun Whalley bends the ball past Jones. Lovely strike.

After a lengthy period of deliberation referee Ross Joyce rules the goal out for offside.

GOAL - Accrington equalise

Josh Andrews, typically.

Louis Jones saves excellently from Joe Pritchard to preserve Doncaster’s lead.
