Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 A weak effort by Holding on the edge of the Doncaster box rolls slowly into the hands of Lawlor. The goalkeeper tries the play the ball out quickly but it falls to an Arsenal player and finds himself straight back under pressure. Arsenal play the ball around the box before Iwobi tries a driven effort from the right of the box. Lawlor does well to parry it clear.
90' +2 Mandeville plays a good ball towards the edge of the box for Rowe. The midfielder takes on two defenders as he tries to create space to cross before running out of room and knocking the ball out of play. Very little time left for Doncaster to rescue an equaliser.
90' The fourth official has indicated four additional minutes of stoppage time.
89' Wilshere is left with plenty of space on the Doncaster box and tries his luck from ranged. It is a good effort but Butler throws his body in the way to prevent an Arsenal goal.
88' Sanchez chips the ball towards the back post for Giroud. The Frenchman hits it first time with a left-footed volley but can only find the side-netting.
86' The second corner comes to nothing and Arsenal get possession back. Nervy moments for Wenger's men as Doncaster are looking the far more threatening side in these dying stages of the game.
85' A brilliant solo effort from Mandeville, who beats two Arsenal players in the box before firing a shot on goal. It takes a deflection off Mertesacker and out for a corner. His cross from the corner then finds a Doncaster head which is looping towards the right post. Ospina looks beaten but it bounces off the crossbar before being cleared for another corner.
84' J. Willock enters the game and replaces R. Nelson.
Final Arsenal change. Reiss Nelson is replaced by Joseph Willock.
83' Good defending from Holding. Doncaster come forward on the left wing and swing in a dangerous cross along the face of the goal. Holding just does enough defensively to knock the ball out of reach of the Doncaster forwards.
80' Maitland-Niles saves Arsenal's skin once again. This time Marquis breaks forward but lacks the pace to get in on goal. Maitland-Niles races back to once again rob the Doncaster player of the ball and clear up the danger.
