Boos Dave Penney has hailed supersub Paul Heffernan as the clubs best finisher after he came off the bench to fire Doncaster into the last 16 of the Carling Cup.

The third round clash with Gillingham was set for extra time until the summer signing from Bristol City was brought on and grabbed himself a couple.

‘He’s the best finisher I’ve seen in training, we paid good money for him to come here. He scores goals. Strikers need to score goals, as simple as that.’

Heffernan’s winner puts Doncaster into the last 16 of the Carling Cup for the first time in 30 years.
