Although Boro settled into the game well with some sustained possession and some free flowing football, they found themselves two goals down following breakaway efforts from Doncaster.

Boro replied when Joel Daniels cut inside from the left and struck what could be the goal of the season, curling home into the top corner.

This seemed to wake Doncaster up and they soon added two more goals to the score going in at half-time 4-1 up.

Boro came out after the break full of momentum and quickly added to there tally when they where awarded a free-kick on the left-hand edge of the box.

Riki-Lee Green stepped up and superbly fired the ball into the top corner leaving the Doncaster keeper no chance.

Boro had the momentum and pushed for more goals with both Josh Dolan and Daniels going close, before a severe hailstorm forced the players off the pitch to take cover.

When the players returned, Doncaster took advantage of the break and added a further two goals to the tally before the game was cut short due to the weather.
