Josh Morris’ second-half equaliser against Gillingham wasn't enough to earn the Iron a point as two further strikes from the visitors saw them take all three points. Despite defeat, however, United remain fourth going into Tuesday's encounter.

Meanwhile, Doncaster, who are managed by Darren Ferguson, came from two goals down to draw 2-2 away at Shrewsbury Town.

TEAM NEWS…
Matt Gilks will miss the match with a calf injury, but Alexander is hopeful that the goalkeeper could return to action soon.

Meanwhile, new loanee Ryan Yates has returned to the Iron following a finger operation that has kept him out of the last two games. Alexander confirmed he will again miss out, but is likely to return to full training ahead of United's next league game.

Luke Williams continues to train following a long-term hamstring lay-off, while Sam Mantom continues to be back on the grass with the medical team following a groin injury, but is yet to return to full training.

Long-term absentees Jordan Clarke (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) are still a while away from returning, while Andrew Crofts trained on Monday for the first time following an ankle injury.

Elsewhere, Levi Sutton also returned to training on Monday following illness last week, while striker Kyle Wootton has suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury suffered while on loan at Stevenage.

ONE TO WATCH…
Former Scunthorpe loanee Tommy Rowe was the star man the last time the two sides met in the FA Cup back in December.

He made 14 appearances, netting once, during his three month stint at Glanford Park in 2015-16 and has so far scored six goals in 34 appearances for Doncaster so far this season - including a brace against the Iron in that cup match - incidentally the last time he netted for the side.

Match Reports

Report: Iron 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

23 January 2018

United drew 1-1 at home to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.

Tom Hopper gave United an early lead after a mistake in the Rovers defence saw him with an open net to shoot at.

That Hopper goal would have been the winner, until Alfie Beestin headed home in added time to rescue a point for Rovers.

The Iron started dominantly, and had a goal to show for it after only three minutes. The Rovers backline got themselves in a mess, and goalkeeper Ian Lawlor rushed out and missed the ball, meaning Hopper had the simple task of passing into the open net.

The home side were denied what looked to be a certain penalty not too long after the first, when Hopper rounded Lawlor and was brought down – but Eddie Ilderton deemed it to be a dive.

Rovers first effort of the game came when Ben Whiteman received the ball on the edge of the area, but his low first-time effort was held well by Rory Watson.

United piled forward next, and Hakeeb Adelakun’s throughball to Josh Morris ended in a stinging shot, but Lawlor was more convincing this time.

The fourth official announced there would be two additional minutes at the end of the first half. The home side would be handed one more golden opportunity, but Adelakun’s cross was headed over by Neal Bishop.

The Iron came out firing in the second half, and could have doubled their lead within minutes when Morris’ free kick was well hit, but Lawlor did well to divert it away for a corner.

Bishop was forced off on 64 minutes after he blocked a Doncaster shot, but was caught by the follow up from the Rovers man – meaning Cameron McGeehan entered the fray.

Kevin van Veen was denied superbly three minutes later when he headed goalwards from a Holmes cross, but somehow Lawlor clawed it to safety.

Watson was forced into action next as he superbly diverted Whiteman’s effort away from goal.

The game hit a rough patch with a lot of the possession in midfield, before McGeehan drove forward and saw his thirty-yard effort fly narrowly wide.

The Iron drove forward again soon after, but Ivan Toney’s headed effort from a Lee Novak cross was tame.

The fourth official announced there was be eight additional minutes at the end of the game, as United looked to hold on to their narrow lead.

Doncaster rescued a point in 95th minute when Beestin headed home after a brilliant cross from the left.
