Two under pressure rookie bosses go head-to-head when Doncaster Rovers welcome struggling Crawley Town to the Eco-Power Stadium this afternoon.

Gary McSheffrey’s Doncaster have fallen to twelfth in League Two after three straight defeats, but did halt their losing run against Lincoln City in the Papa Johns Trophy on Tuesday.

Their opponents today, who are led by Kevin Betsy – also in his first senior managerial role – have won just once in the league this term, with two defeats in their last two.

  • Crawley have lost their last two in league and cup
  • Rovers beat Lincoln City in the Papa Johns Trophy on Tuesday

Just as Crawley are about to bring Dominic Telford (last season’s top-scorer) on Agard tries a half volley that hits Miller and falls into his path before he fires a delicious volley high into the goal. Lovely finish. A bit lucky, but Doncaster won’t care.

James Tilley should do better after he’s found in the box. The ball seems to take him by surprise, however, and he pokes wide.

GOAL - 2-1 to Rovers!

George Miller converts from the spot after Kieran Agard won the spot kick when his header was met by the arm of a Crawley defender.

Keeper went the right way and got a touch. Still, four goals for Miller this term.

Mitchell smothers from close range

Kyle Knoyle misses his interception and Caleb Chukwuemeka is there to collect. He flicks the ball back to a teammate, whose low effort is smothered by Mitchell from close range.

Donny get us started for round two

We go again.

Doncaster will be very frustrated with themselves for throwing away their advantage just two minutes after taking the lead. It’s taken the shine off what was an encouraging first half.

Very muted atmosphere at the interval. There is definitely something in this game for Rovers but as we have seen Crawley are a threat and a far from out of it.

Kyle Hurst clears one - and takes a chunk out of the linesman!

I bet the assistant referee felt that. Hurst, scrambling to avoid a corner, knicks the ball away just in time but can’t stop himself running into the lino.

Ben Close, not Luke Molyneux, has been credited with the assist for Doncaster’s goal.

They led for two minutes.
