@jkomn156 - Result apart, it was a great game, didn’t deserve to lose and denied a penalty yet again. Bring on next season #drfc

@jimmy_trueblue - Is there an unwritten FA rule somewhere that states rovers cannot be awarded a penalty under any circumstances whatsoever #drfc

@rhysdyer4 - Quality game of football, passionate performance, unlucky to not come away with anything, worth every penny. #drfc
