Ticket Information: Doncaster Rovers

4 January 2019
The game kicks-off at 2pm on 6th January, being covered by TV internationally, including in the United States, Scandinavia and across other parts of the world.
 
Grant McCann’s Donny arrive in fine form, for only the second clash between the two sides in the FA Cup, the last coming in 1997, when Sean Gregan was amongst the scorers as PNE came out on top in a five-goal thriller at Deepdale.
 
Manager Alex Neil will be hoping to have some members of his squad back available after an injury crisis beset the festive fixtures, but his three new recruits – Josh Ginnelly, Jayden Stockley and Brad Potts – are all cup tied for the game and must wait for the Swansea City home game for their first chance at involvement.
