This is what I was expecting before the season started. I still think Rovers will struggle this season. Very small squad and some are nowhere near full fitness. Still dreading a few injuries.

Back to the drawing board. Be a hard game down at Yeovil next week and a certain J. Hayter will be wanting to prove something to Saunders
