Doncaster   2 - 2   Wolverhampton

Billy Sharp scores against Wolves
Doncaster striker Billy Sharp equalised almost instantly against Wolves

Ten-man Wolves hung on for a replay in the FA Cup third round after being pushed close by Championship club Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The visitors took the lead in stunning fashion after 37 minutes through Nenad Milijas's powerful 35-yard strike.

But Rovers soon levelled as Billy Sharp drilled in before James Hayter volleyed the hosts ahead just before half time.

Wolves equalised when Stephen Hunt scored a penalty before George Elokobi was sent off for a reckless tackle.

Mick McCarthy's side clung to their draw after Elokobi had clattered into the back of James Coppinger with 13 minutes remaining.

Wolves winger Stephen Ward set the tone for an pulsating tie within 30 seconds, flashing a left-foot shot wide of target.

Sharp had the ball in the net fpr Doncaster in the 12th minute when he turned home a cross but referee Anthony Taylor ruled that he had fouled Christophe Berra.

With Doncaster pressing, Wolves grabbed the lead when Milijas lashed past Neil Sullivan from the left flank.

But moments later Sharp was fed by a short pass from Coppinger before confidently shooting home.

And the hosts went ahead when John Oster's header into the box fell to Hayter, whose swinging right-foot volley beat Marcus Hahnemann.

Wolves settled after half-time and Doncaster's Sam Hird could have few complaints following the trip on Matt Jarvis which led to Hunt's penalty, which he squeezed in to Sullivan's left.

With the action fraught, Elokobi went into Coppinger on the halfway line and after lengthy treatment - and frayed tempers on the touchline - the Wolves man was handed a straight red card.
