Oldham Athletic 0-1 Doncaster Rovers highlights

Genseric Kusunga's late own goal booked Doncaster's place in the third round of the FA Cup as they defeated Oldham.

Doncaster's Richie Wellens and Oldham top scorer Jonathan Forte both saw first-half efforts saved.

Visiting keeper Sam Johnstone denied Danny Philliskirk and Doncaster's Theo Robinson's saw his shot well saved.

Rovers broke the deadlock with four minutes to go as keeper Paddy Kenny dived to punch clear a cross but the ball cannoned back off Kusunga and in.

Oldham Athletic boss Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

Johnson on Oldham v Doncaster

"We have lost two home games in the last two cup encounters that we probably shouldn't have, and I'm disappointed.

"We have ourselves in a good league position by doing things we didn't do today - running and hustling.

"Our league form is very good over a sustained period of time, but I don't know why the psychology has dropped off a little bit today. I couldn't explain it. If I could, I would be a better manager than I am now."
