West Ham United 3-0 Doncaster Rovers

954′ mins): Balcombe did well to shovel out Benrahma’s fizzing dead-ball effort, then turn Lanzini’s drive around his left-hand post as West Ham menaced immediately after the restart.

Balcombe was keeping Rovers afloat. This time the stopper flipped over Tomas Souceck’s strike, then he flew across his goal to deny the Czech’s goalbound header. But he was powerless to prevent a third – Issa Diop flicking on – the unfortunate Butler turning into his own net from close range
