Crewe Alexandra's assistant manager Neil Baker was simply relieved to get through after seeing his side taken to penalties by Doncaster Rovers in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

"We did okay but the most important thing is that we got through" - Neil Baker
Mathias Pogba had earlier given the hosts the lead with his ninth goal of the season. But Chris Brown equalised in the final minute after Matt Tootle had already been sent-off for his second caution of the night.

"I am pleased that we got through," Baker told Alex's official website. "We did okay but the most important thing is that we got through and are in the next round.

"They scored right at the death and it took it straight to penalties, but we had 7 or 8 stepping forward and wanting them," he added. "There is some pressure on them and they took them well."
