Darlington   2 - 1   Bristol Rovers

Blue Square Bet Premier side Darlington dumped League One Bristol Rovers out of the FA Cup with a deserved victory.

Michael Brough's 20-yard drive put the home side ahead but Will Hoskins equalised immediately with a low free-kick after being fouled by Liam Hatch.

Gary Smith scored the winner for Darlington after the break, tapping in the rebound after Wayne Brown diverted the ball onto his own post.

Rovers searched for an equaliser but John Akinde's shot was tipped over.

Akinde had charged down the left before cutting inside, but home keeper Sam Russell did well to deny him a stunning goal.

Earlier, it appeared that Hoskins was fouled in the box in the incident leading up to the equaliser, so Rovers will feel that justice was done when the striker fired in.

But their top scorer was withdrawn through injury shortly afterwards and the visitors struggled to cope without their hitman.


Darlington manager Mark Cooper told BBC Tees:
"It was a great game, it would have been a good game to watch, the referee made it interesting.

"I'm really pleased with the commitment of the squad, the bad week we had two weeks ago hopefully now is a distant memory.

"Everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet, if we play with that effort and desire we won't go far wrong.

"I thought we were comfortable, we had good possession and the young lads used their little amount of experience well."

Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:
"In a game where we had a lot of territory and possession you need someone who can unlock teams so we missed his (Will Hoskins') creativity when he went off.

"I was angry, that hurt us and it was a poor defeat. We need to make sure we dust ourselves down as we've not another potential banana skin on Tuesday (against Wycombe).

"There were some harsh words spoken because the level we know we're capable of we didn't get to today."
