Walsall put in another encouraging display but were edged out on penalties as they exited the Carabao Cup at hands of Doncaster.

Matt Taylor's lot left a good impression on the home fans at the Banks's Stadium – seeing their team at the ground for the first time in almost 18 months.

But having been unable to convert one of a string of first-half chances, they were downed 4-3 on penalties by the League One visitors.

The Saddlers had looked likely to book their place in the second round after a particularly bright first 45 minutes.

Carl Rushworth then pulled off a series of top-drawer saves to take it penalties, where Taylor's charges were ultimately outdone on sudden death.

A frustrating night for Walsall but, performance-wise, there was plenty to take from it.
