Table with expandable row > focus management

I have a question about focus management.

The website I am reviewing is using a table with an expandable row. (This is the plugin being used: https://datatables.net/examples/api/row_details.html
It is not keyboard accessible. But let us suppose it is.)

This is what I should be able to do:

- I TAB to the "plus-sign" in the first cell
- I use ENTER or Spacebar
- The expandable row expands

However, the next element in the source order is the second cell, not the expandable row. So, should something be done with the focus management?
