McMath adds up to only goal

It was a game that had all the makings of being a real pot boiler.

However, neither side turned on the gas and instead of thrills and spills there was very little to enthuse over.

Neither side made much of an impact in the way of playing entertaining football, but Rovers were nevertheless delighted in gaining the three precious league points they were searching for.

The only goal of the dourly-fought clash came midway through the second half when Rovers’ Alan McMath latched on to a long clearance from keeper Chris Watson and shook off his marker before shooting into the net.
