But, just three minutes later 18-year-old Conor Chaplin restored the hosts’ lead as he converted Enda Stevens’ perfect cross and they held on for a fantastic victory.
Doncaster scraped past Yorkshire rivals Leeds on penalties at the Keepmoat Stadium. Lewis Cook netted the 100th goal of the 2015-16 Capital One Cup to give Leeds the upper hand inside 14 minutes.
