Craig Davies put the visitors ahead with less than twenty minutes remaining before David Syers equalised for Rovers soon afterwards.

James Harper would be a great signing. With the numbers at the club, Rovers need a man with his experience in midfield.

Good to see Martin Woods having a decent pre-season after all his injury problems of recent seasons.
