Rovers followed a midweek 7-0 defeat to Ely City in a Ridgeons League Cup tie with another toothless performance, not helped by the withdrawal of four players on the morning of the game.

Emergency goalkeeper signing Matt Renshaw took to the field for the home side but was clearly not fit and was withdrawn at half-time with the visitors 3-0 up.

Outfield player Stephen Hurst took over in goal in the second half but couldn't stop a further three goals.

Joint manager Karly Hurst said: "It was one of those nightmare days where nothing goes right. We were missing seven players through injury and suspension.

"Had we been at full strength we would have given them a game but it was one of those days we have to write off."

Rovers travel to struggling Cornard United on Saturday in a rearranged fixture and make the short journey to March Town United for a First Division Knockout Cup tie on Tuesday.
