Saunders: Glad to avoid cup upset

Martin Woods and Iain Hume put Rovers two goals to the good at the interval and substitute Chris Brown sealed a 3-1 victory after Richard Marshall pulled one back in superb fashion for the Conference North outfit.

Doncaster boss Dean Saunders said " I'm just relieved to get through it with no injuries because it was always going to be a potential banana skin. I knew it would be a difficult game because we had little to gain and everything to lose playing a non-league side.

"I thought they did very well but it relaxed us a bit when we went two goals up although they went and scored with a brilliant effort worthy of the Premier League which left us one mistake away from an upset and a replay."

He added: "I was glad we finished it off with the third goal but I thought they performed well and I think they will have a good season.

"We had a couple of players injured and lacked a bit of width but we got the job done and we just need to keep improving."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
