Doncaster take huge step towards play-off final with win at Crewe

Doncaster Rovers have placed themselves in a commanding position to secure a spot at Wembley for the League Two play-off final following a 2-0 victory in the first leg of the semi-final against Crewe at the Mornflake Stadium.

The breakthrough arrived for Rovers in the 35th minute, as Matthew Craig and Hakeeb Adelakun linked up, setting up Luke Molyneux for a first-time strike into the roof of the net.

Early in the second half, the visitors doubled their lead when Joe Ironside capitalised on a defensive error, driving into the penalty area before laying off the ball to Harrison Biggins, who made no mistake, slotting home from 15 yards with a composed finish.

Chris Long squandered Crewe's best chance late in the game by directing a header over the bar as Doncaster held firm until the end.

As a result, Grant McCann's side are the clear favourites to advance and potentially face the winners of the other semi-final clash between MK Dons and Crawley on Sunday, May 19th at Wembley.

Before looking ahead to a possible final, Doncaster must first complete the job as they host Crewe at the Eco-Power Stadium on Friday night.

As a passionate Doncaster Rovers fan, I am absolutely thrilled with this result! The team showed great determination and skill to secure a 2-0 lead in the first leg of the play-off semi-final. The goals from Molyneux and Biggins were fantastic and the defense was solid throughout the match. I have full confidence that we can finish the job in the second leg and secure our spot at Wembley. Come on Rovers!

As a Doncaster Rovers fan, I couldn't be happier with the team's performance in the first leg of the play-off semi-final against Crewe. A 2-0 victory puts us in a great position to secure a spot at Wembley. Molyneux's goal was pure class and Ironside's assist to Biggins was spot on. Let's finish the job in the second leg!
