Both teams started slowly with the ball being given away by both sets of players far too easily.
It was Rovers who managed to sort their play out first, and on 20 minutes took the lead. Stuart Humphreys linked up with Neil Morris and the latter smashed an 18-yard drive into the bottom corner which gave the keeper no chance.

Few chances were made during the remainder of the first half and Rovers were pleased to take a 1-0 lead into the break.
The second half was only five minutes old when Rangers equalised with a goal that had more than a hint of offside about it.
Shipp's men then had chances to regain the lead and had the ball in the net twice only to see the flag raised for offside on both occasions.
Other chances were missed before a poor defensive error cost Rovers dearly.
As a Sileby forward nipped in to steal the points it left manager Shipp fuming at both the way the winning goal was conceded and the errors by a linesman over the second disallowed Rovers 'goal'.
