|Kirby wins a header over two Rover's players
Town looked in control in the first 15 minutes as Liam Hope and Adam Wallace missed good chances to score along with a top-notch clearance off the goal line by Rover's defender Grant Khory-Davidson from a Mark Kirby header which was destined for the back of the net!
From then it all went wrong in the space of about three minutes as Rover's top scorer Luka Frankis out ran the Town back line to fire the ball past Darren Bonfield to make the score 0-1. Rover's captain Dan Trenkel who always seems to play well against us then put a cross into the box which was met by the head of Ty Benjamin. Bonfield made a good parried save only for Benjamin to be the quickest to the ball and make it 0-2.

Town pressed to get back into the game in the second half only for Rovers to seal the result in the 57 minute when that man again Dan Trenkel put the ball across the goalmouth for Billy Johnson to finish making the score 0-3.
Louis Godwin-Green in the Rover's goal made a great save from a Bardle header to keep a clean sheet for his team and his opposite number Bonfield made a fantastic save late on to keep the score at 0-3.
