FA Cup: Doncaster 2-0 Stalybridge Celtic highlights

Andy Williams' double saw Doncaster ease to a comfortable victory over National League North side Stalybridge.

The League One side were ahead after just three minutes as the forward scored with a low left-foot shot.

Rovers went two clear with 20 minutes remaining when Williams netted from close range after a defensive error from a corner by Oliver Crowley.

Bohan Dixon was unlucky to see his 20-yard free-kick tipped round the post by Doncaster keeper Thorsten Stuckmann.
