Luke Molyneux scores quickfire brace to boost Doncaster to victory at Swindon

11 February 2023

Luke Molyneux scored twice in three minutes to fire Doncaster to a 2-0 Sky Bet League Two win at Swindon.

Molyneux was Doncaster’s main threat throughout and broke the deadlock after 71 minutes when he was allowed space on the right side of the box to slot home at his near post.

Two minutes later Molyneux received a pull back from James Maxwell on the left side of the area and stroked the ball low into the corner with a first-time effort.

Doncaster could have gone ahead when Molyneux latched onto a loose ball after 17 minutes and stood a cross up for Kyle Hurst, but he headed back across goal for Sol Brynn to push the ball clear.

Swindon’s first chance came when Jonny Williams was in space 35 yards out and decided to try his luck, with his effort headed for the top corner before Jonathan Mitchell tipped it around a post.

Swindon came close to taking a spectacular lead in first-half stoppage time as Jake Cain whipped a free-kick from the corner of the box that smacked against the crossbar.
