The Gas Go Marching On
The Memorial Stadium
Darrell Clarke made one change to the side bringing in Daniel Leadbitter for Tom Lockers who was on International duty with the Welsh Under 21's. Ellis Harrison was also with the Welsh Under 21's, whilst Ollie Mcburnie was with the Scottish Under 21's. Lee Mansell and Stuart Sinclair were both still missing through injury but Liam Lawrence was back on the bench.
Cambridge had a couple of early chances that came to nothing but on 10 minutes Rovers took the lead. Billy Bodin received the ball from Lines and advanced to unleash a 25 yard drive to put Rovers in the lead.
On 18 minutes it was 2-0, good play down the wing from Daniel Leadbitter saw him make his way to the touchline and deliver a cross which Billy Bodin Headed home.
Luke Berry saw a long range drive saved by Steve Mildenhall and at the other end the impressive Montano saw a volley fly just over. Montano then saw his fierce shot saved well by the Cambridge keeper.
Second half was much of the same for Rovers, former Cambridge man Rory Gaffney played a excellent cross field ball to find Matty Taylor who saw his shot well saved. Steve Mildenhall then had to be alert to palm away a shot from Max Clark and then made a fantastic save to keep out Robbie Simpson shot.
Rovers wrapped up the game with 17 minutes to got when Matty Taylor brilliantly sent the defender the wrong way and fired the ball home to make it 3-0.
Rovers remain in third and next face the long trip to Carlisle on Easter Monday.
