Scorer: Antony V
With a huge squad to choose from optimism was high but unfortunately the team could transfer that optimism onto the pitch.
Rovers found themselves 1 nil down at half time. Several missed chances costing Rovers dearly.
Within the second half another sin bin cost Rovers however this didn’t deter Rovers as Anthony Vasquez made it 1-1.
Rovers switched tactics and went to take control of the game when back to the full 11 players but unfortunately meant that typically Hewlett were still in the game and against the run of play took the lead for 2-1.
Rovers went in search of the equaliser and within the last minute sent Alex up for the corner but when the corner lead to noting Rovers got caught on the break and with the last kick of the game Hewlett got the third and final goal to take the 3 points.
A huge thank you to Graham for taking the game.
Huge apologies to the two players who didn’t get on. The only downside when having a big squad.
We go again next Saturday the 16th as Rovers host their first home league game of the season against league pacesetters Manchester Celtic 10:15am kick off.
