Doncaster Rovers will host League One Stevenage in the third round of the FA Cup.

The draw was not the glamour tie many fans hoped for - but it presents Rovers with a very good opportunity of reaching the fourth round for the first time for three years.

Stevenage, whose cup tradition includes a famous win against Newcastle in 2011, are currently 21st in League One.

Current boss Paul Dickov masterminded Doncaster’s second round exit last season, then in charge of Oldham the Latics came from behind to beat Rovers 3-1 at Boundary Park.

Rovers last reached the fourth round in 2010 before losing to Derby County.

Ties will be played on the weekend of 4 and 5 January 2014.
