A brace from Ben Whiteman put Rovers in control by the break before they stood up to intense pressure from Carlisle in the second half.

Here we bring a selection of the social media reaction from Rovers fans to the victory.

@HenryWoodNew: Pretty routine, never looked in true danger without stepping out of second gear. Good to get gomes and TJJ back, Okenabirhie needs a rest.

@Mark34747787: Should have been more comfortable,but an error taking Sims off IMO. Thought Gomes steadied things in midfield but afraid Feji continues to disappoint. Big London side away & on tv please in next round!!

@claretimms2: Job well done sims played great and what can I say about our captain

@BenWhiteman17 two goals from the skipper one word superstar onto draw tomoro and Wednesday night against hull the sky is our limit RTID

@DRFCJM1: Not great lucky they couldn’t finish

@ThankTam: Good 1st half, dropped off them 2nd. Fortunate to come away with the win but there's positives in that

@10Sbailey: Bring on The Big Boys .....

@smdrfc: Josh Sims was easy the best player on the pitch & Ben Whiteman took the goals well & I thought Danny Amos played well, before he got taken off with an injury which he picked up in the first half & I hope its not too bad for the young lad.

@superryandunphy: Job done, onto the next

@TheWheelDon: Thought we were better, but without putting them away. If that shot of theirs had gone in in the 1st half it might have been a different game. Whiteman took his chances well but didn't notice him apart from that.

@W1LDE: Didn’t get out of 2nd gear but did enough to be in the hat!

@1879_MC: Controlled the game after a shaky 20 minutes, never looked like going out the cup

@MattyDavies98_: For me, I’d love one of the remaining non-league clubs such as Chorley/Stockport, a local game such as Barnsley/Wednesday or a bottom half prem club such as Fulham/Burnley. Preferably at home. Definitely NOT Oldham!!
