Doncaster cruise through after win over AFC Wimbledon

Doncaster secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over League One rivals AFC Wimbledon in their FA Cup first-round replay.

Goals from James Coppinger and substitute Rakish Bingham saw Rovers shake off a lacklustre first half to stroll through at the second time of asking.

Wimbledon were much the better side in the first half with Joe Pigott and Mitch Pinnock going close before Kwesi Appiah struck the post with a powerful drive from 12 yards.

Doncaster were sluggish in their play but took the lead against the run of play after 52 minutes.

Jon Taylor carried the ball out from the back superbly before releasing Coppinger clear, with the veteran showing excellent composure to slot beyond Nathan Trott.

It was a goal that brought the hosts to life with Ben Sheaf and Taylor both going close to extending the advantage.

The second goal came on 70 minutes. Coppinger raced clear before centring for Bingham to slot home his first goal for the club.

Taylor and Ben Sheaf both saw efforts cleared off the line as Doncaster looked to add to their score.
