Attendance: 6,162


Darrell Clarke made three changes to the side that took on Dover athletic at The Memorial Stadium.

Keeper Will Puddy came in for the suspended Steve Mildenhall, whilst Adam Cunnington and Dave Martin were both recalled to the starting line up.

Rovers once again started off brightly and striker Adam Cunnington was unlucky to see his header from a Lee Brown cross cannon back off the bar. Dover hit the wood work them selves when Stefan Payne's shot hit the post. Rovers took the lead on 35 minutes when Cunnington diverted Stuart Sinclairs shot home.

Dover came out quick in the second half looking for a equalizer and Puddy in the Rovers goal had to be on hand to push a shot around the post. With 15 minutes to go Matty Taylor was put through one on one, but couldnot find a way past the on rushing Dover keeper.

As the game was drawing to a close Dover got their equalizer when sub Tom Murphy volleyed home. Rovers dropped to sixth after the draw. but are now unbeaten in six games. Next up is a home game against Dartford on Tuesday night.
