GALLERY | Grimsby Town 1 Rovers 0

14 August 2019

Rovers fell to a 1-0 defeat in the first round of the Carabao Cup when they travelled to Blundell Park to face Sky Bet League Two Grimsby Town.

Rovers started brightly, penning the Mariners into their half and littering the goal with shots and efforts - the best of which fell to Kieran Sadlier who forced a good, full-length save from James McKeown.

Grimsby Town carried a threat on the break, however, and broke away in numbers on 40 minutes for Jordan Cook to finish the chance. Sadlier had another chance almost immediately which was met by another fantastic save. In the second half, Grimsby had shut up shop and while Rovers continued to dominate possession they couldn't make the pressure count.

Up next for Rovers at home - we host Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League One. Tickets can be purchased online at or in person from the Club Doncaster Box Office. New to Rovers - check out our first time fans guide.
