Doncaster Rovers and Crewe Alexandra have been blasted by fans after becoming embroiled in a war of words on Twitter.

The two clubs have been goading each other on social media after Rovers dramatic victory over their rivals at the Keepmoat on Saturday.

Both clubs have been tweeting insults following Rovers’ 3-2 win, with each club’s official Twitter feed used to continue the battle.

The visitors appeared to have grabbed all three points after going 2-1 up in the 90th minute but Rovers hit back to grab two goals in injury time to seal a 3-2 win.

And Rovers were quick to rub salt into the Cheshire side’s wounds by tweeting a link to the last-gasp goals which also included the message “sorry not sorry.”

Crewe responded with a clip to Rovers getting relegated at Leicester at the end of the 2013-14 season with the hashtag #whoops as well as taunts about their 8-0 victory over Rovers in December 2002, adding the line “Thank you and goodnight.”

Rovers then hit back printing a photo of the League One table upside down - appearing to show bottom placed Crewe at the top.

An accompanying tweet read: “@crewealexfc ouch! Wrong side of bed this morning? Hope this cheers you up.”

But fans were unimpressed with the Twitter war, with Rovers fan Robert Ghosh tweeting: “Just read @drfc_official tweets with @crewealexfc I’m guessing it’s Junior Takeover day again today? #drfc.”

Rovers fanzine Popular Stand tweeted: “You know what football is all about? It’s about official club twitter accounts exchanging #epicbantz. Can’t we just enjoy a win?”
