CHORLEY'S FA Cup run came to an abrupt end as the Magpies were beaten 7-0 at Doncaster Rovers in their first round reply on Tuesday night.

Jamie Vermiglio's men had held their League One opponents to a 2-2 draw at Victory Park 10 days earlier but were well beaten at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Alfie May gave Doncaster an early lead before James Coppinger hit a post and Matty Urwin denied Matty Blair before the latter doubled the home side's advantage.

Herbie Kane made it three inside the opening half an hour before May completed his hat-trick before the break with two more goals.

The hosts went down to 10 men early in the second half when former Burnley defender Tom Anderson was shown two yellow cards in quick succession but it failed to stem the tide.

Urwin, who made several excellent saves, denied John Marquis from the penalty spot which gave the large travelling support something to cheer but that was as good as it got for the Magpies.

May scored his fourth and Doncaster's sixth with nine minutes to go before Marquis completed the rout in the closing stages.

Chorley, who are second in the National League North after a superb start to the season, are in FA Trophy action this weekend when they face Stockport County.
