JAMES Hayter scored against his former side as Rovers slipped up at League One pacesetters Yeovil Town.

Hayter planted a second half header past Gary Woods to set the Glovers on their way to a third league win out of four.

Rovers' former Wembley play-off final hero refused to celebrate the goal out of respect for his former side.

Substitute Gozie Ugwu then lobbed Woods in the closing stages after seizing on a poor defensive header from Tommy Spurr to put the game out of reach.

Rovers struggled to carve out clear openings and made too many unforced errors on the ball, while the performance lacked the intensity seen against Hull in the Capital One Cup.

Dave Syers had the chance to level when Spurr's header fell kindly for him in the box but he failed to trouble Marek Stech.

Billy Paynter reduced the arrears in the last minute of stoppage time, latching onto debutant Iain Hume's cross, but it was too little too late for below-par Rovers.
