THREE quick goals before half-time gave Rovers their second win of the season at Hall Road.

With Rovers three goals ahead the second half was mostly a non-event and the home side saw out time to claim the victory.
Manager Dean Shipp said: "The result flattered us a bit and we were thankful for some great saves from Danny Workman to keep our clean sheet.
"We're not quite playing as a team yet but there were some good individual performances on the day and it's great to get a clean sheet."
