Doncaster 0-0 Aston Villa – FA Cup – Highlights
Aston Villa secured an FA Cup fourth-round replay despite a pulsating display by Championship side Doncaster.
Rovers’ Martin Woods rattled the bar with a cracking first-half shot and again late on with a free-kick.
But Villa always looked dangerous and Doncaster’s veteran keeper Neil Sullivan produced fine saves to deny Gabriel Agbonlahor and Curtis Davies.
And Agbanlahor missed a great chance when he fired against the bar after being released by Steve Sidwell.
It was an uncomfortable afternoon for the Premier League side as they struggled to find any real tempo at Keepmoat Stadium.
Villa manager Martin O’Neill named a virtually full-strength line-up, although central defender Carlos Cuellar was deployed at right-back with Nigel Reo-Coker playing in midfield.
Cuellar did not look comfortable and Rovers’ Gareth Roberts sneaked behind the Spaniard early on, only to fire wide from seven yards out.
