It was a different story after the break, however, when Eddie Patten chipped the hosts into the lead on 54 minutes.
Rovers continued to defend stubbornly and both David Goodhall and Peter Collins went close before the home side made the game safe.
Two minutes from time it was all over when Karl Gibbs put the game out of reach and his brother Gary added the gloss on the victory with a third in injury time.
