Brentford   0 - 1   Doncaster

A late header from James O'Connor broke Brentford hearts and sealed Doncaster's place in the FA Cup fourth round.

Bees' goalkeeper Lewis Price kept his side in it with a string of fine saves from Billy Sharp.

But the League One side's resistance was broken when O'Connor converted Brian Stock's scuffed cross three minutes from time.

Bees' substitute Sam Saunders headed a gilt-edged chance wide late on as Rovers held on to book a trip to Derby.


Doncaster Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I've watched them twice here, they always make it difficult and they're a hard nut to crack.

"All week we've said this won't be a test of ability it will be a test of attitude, and for our boys, I feel we came through with flying colours.

"I thought our attitude today was first class."
