Gas Defeated At Home Again

Rovers Afternoon started off in disappointing fashion with Gas keeper Scott Shearer getting injured in the warm up and finished in the same way, as Rovers crashed at home to Notts County, a team that has failed to win in their last 5 games.

Steve Book was drafted in to replace the injured Shearer and there was question marks over Book’s Positioning for County’s first goal. Book seemed to have been caught in no mans land and the lively Chillingworth looped a header over the stranded Book. Rovers only real effort in the first half was a long range drive from Hunt, which was pushed over the bar.

It was much of the same in the second half, with neither team creating any decent chances, until Lewis Haldane broke the county off side trap and smashed home the Equalizer.

County changed things around and brought on Steve Scoffman for Andy White, and it was Scoffman who grabbed all three points for the vistors. Rovers pushed hard to try and snatch a point. But for all their possesion could not find the final pass to create any decent scoring chance, saying that County barely threatened apart from the two goal’s and Rovers will feel hard done by not to have picked up a point. Rovers seemed to be missing Junior Agogo’s pace up front who is still suspended for the trip to Oxford and Shrewsbury.
Paul Trollope
‘At times we had a stranglehold on the match, but we rushed our shooting and were anxious,’

‘Our crossing and finishing lacked quality and we need to work on this because there’s no magic wand.

‘We did get caught at the back twice but I’m not sure Notts County will go away saying they deserved the win.’
