DRFC - Rovers away in Cup

Doncaster Rovers have been drawn against either Morecambe or Cheltenham Town away in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

Morecambe and Cheltenham`s original game was abandoned on Saturday in the second half due to fog with the score level at 1-1.
They are to replay the game this Tuesday 2nd December.

If Cheltenham are to progress then it will be a repeat of the last game of last season when Rovers needed a win to gain promotion. Cheltenham won the game 2-1 which kept them up and Forest took the last automatic spot.

Rovers played Morecambe away in pre season losing that match 1-0 so will want revenge for that result if Morecambe progress.

Although Rovers haven`t got a big name in round three it could be the chance for Rovers to progress to the fourth round for the first time since 1985.

The ties are to be played over the weekend January 3rd and 4th.
