MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought it was a good game, and I was impressed with Doncaster. โ€œThey played particularly well in the first half, had the better of it, and it took us some time to get into our stride. โ€œBut in the second half we were more like ourselves. We had a couple of great chances but didnโ€™t take them. Iโ€™m delighted that weโ€™re still in the FA Cup.โ€ Martin O'Neill.
