Championship side Doncaster were swept aside by Wolves at Molineux - who tonight cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup after brushing aside Rovers' relatively feeble challenge.

Stephen Fletcher set Wolves on their way in the fifth minute with his sixth goal of the season, and although Rovers remained in the hunt up until the hour mark, they fell apart from that point.

In front of a sparse 10,031 Molineux crowd, those in attendance were at least warmed on a chilly night with further goals from Geoffrey Mujangi Bia, Kevin Doyle, Matt Jarvis and David Jones.

It could have been so very different if Doncaster had taken the one gilt-edged chance that came their way in the third minute.

In tinkering with his back four, as Wolves boss Mick McCarthy opted to do, there was scope for trouble.
