Carabao Cup: Scunthorpe United 1-2 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster reached the second round of the Carabao Cup for the seventh time in eight seasons with victory at League One rivals Scunthorpe.

On-loan Leeds striker Mallik Wilks opened the scoring with a crisp finish in the 36th minute before Danny Andrews looped in a second after the break.

John Marquis missed a late penalty for Rovers, but it was not costly.

Stephen Humphrys' stoppage-time strike proved to be only a consolation for the Iron.
