Rovers Hit Three In Home Win

Bristol Rovers
3 - 0
AFC Wimbledon

The Memorial Stadium

30th Nov 2013

Attendance: 5,860

Referee:

John Ward named the same side that drew away at Cheltenham Town in mid week.

Rovers were a little lucky to not concede a penalty early, but the ref waved away The Dons protests. David Clarkson put Rovers 1-0 up on 19 minutes when he did well to find himself space on volley home from the edge of the area. Parkes doubled the advantage 12 minutes later, heading powerfully home Lee Brown corner from eight yards out. Eliot Richards was unlucky not to add another put his shot was well saved by The Dons keeper.

The second half Rovers had to soak up some pressure from the visitors as the looked to pull a goal back. George Porter carried on where left off in the first half and it was not shock when he was subbed. Wimbledon midfielder Sammy Moore was sent off for a second yellow card 8 minutes from time before Matt Harrold completed a convincing win by firing home an 89th-minute penalty after substitute Ellis Harrison who looked lively had been fouled.

Rovers remain in 22nd in League and next face Crawley in the 2nd Round of the F.A Cup next Saturday.
