Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll bemoaned his side's injury problems after they slumped to a 2-1 Carling Cup defeat at League Two Accrington.

Rovers were missing nine players due to injury, suspension or international duty and saw James Hayter and Mustapha Dumbuya pick up injuries during the game.

A dejected O'Driscoll said: "We didn't rest anybody - they were all injured. This isn't my favourite competition and it's ended up with the worst scenario - losing the game and having two players carried off."

He added: "James Hayter is on crutches with a hamstring injury and we won't know until the morning just how bad it is. Mustapha Dumbuya just cramped up. He's a young kid and worked really hard throughout the game.

"I couldn't fault our effort, attitude and enthusiasm but we lacked a bit of quality at times. We had enough chances to win it - even in extra time - but it wasn't our night.

"I'm disappointed that we've got more injuries but we have to wait and see how players are before we decide whether we need to bring anyone in."
