That’s it.

Rowe’s quickfire double rescues a point for Rovers. How important could that be come the end of the season?

The gap remains four points.

Rovers far from convincing today but they’ve dug out a result from a losing position which has been a rarity this season.

Mitchell with a vital save to keep out Nightingale’s header.

Martin almost finds Griffiths with a slide-rule pass, just too much on it.

Jackson’s effort cleared off the line by Brown!

The left back surged up the pitch, took the return pass from Griffiths but Brown makes a goal-saving block.

No real chances for either side since the equaliser.

Will both sides now be content to take a point?

Incredible!

It’s Tommy Rowe again.

Another brilliant ball in by Knoyle and Rowe powers a header past Tzanev.

Wow.

Out of nothing!

Knoyle finds Rowe in the box, he brings it down and fires home.

A lifeline.

Rudoni heads just over from Brown’s free-kick. Another free header.

Gardner is booked for a foul.
