How West Ham dusted Doncaster Rovers in FA Cup

West Ham gained a routine 4-0 win over League One side Doncaster Rovers to set up an FA Cup fifth-round tie against either Manchester United or Liverpool.

The Hammers went ahead in the second minute when Andriy Yarmolenko released Ryan Fredericks and his pull-back was steered into the net by Pablo Fornals.

Yarmolenko made it 2-0 as he lifted a finish over Doncaster goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe after Said Benrahma’s pass.

According to the BBC Sport report, Andy Butler scored an own goal and Oladapo Afolayan added a fourth.
