FA Cup: Chorley 2-2 Doncaster Rovers highlights

League One Doncaster twice fought back from behind to earn a replay against 10-man National League North side Chorley.

Josh O'Keefe headed the hosts into a second-minute lead when he got up well to head home from an Adam Blakeman corner, but Herbie Kane poked home from close range to equalise.

Home striker Marcus Carver rattled a powerful shot against the post before Courtney Meppen-Walter restored their lead when his effort went in off the same upright.

The Magpies were reduced to 10 men when Matt Challoner was sent off for an appalling challenge on Kane inside the area, only for referee Ross Joyce to award a free-kick, before Liverpool loanee Kane sent a superb strike into the top corner to force a replay.
