ROVERS drew first blood in this free-scoring encounter when John Shankie touched home a long Jordan Caldwell throw in.

Jamie Dalgleish then extended Rovers’ lead in slotting away a penalty after Shankie had been upended in the box.

Following the changeover Peebles reduced the leeway with an on-target Stuart Mullins strike.

Rovers then regained their two-goal lead when Stefan Laidlaw touched on a free kick in a crowded goalmouth and Chris Dunne netted from close range.

After Peebles had scored again, Mullins slotting away his second goal of the match, Rovers sealed victory when Laidlaw squared the ball to the feet of Shankie, who fired a shot into the net.
