Blackpool came from behind to beat Doncaster Rovers and reach the third round of the Carabao Cup for the first time in nine years.

Rovers took a deserved lead after 23 minutes when Alfie May rifled into the top corner from 10 yards from a corner.

But the visitors levelled after 38 minutes when Michael Nottingham flicked in from close range.

Harry Pritchard's side-footed finish on the hour mark after a long throw was flicked on meant Blackpool progressed.

Blackpool have not lost in their past 10 visits to Doncaster in all competitions.
