A miserable afternoon for Rovers.

The sending off made life difficult but Cheltenham have won that game at a canter far too easily.

Nowhere near good enough.

Pollock heads home from a corner from close range.

May day,

Alfie May again.

He drives into the box from a short corner routine and fires home left-footed.

Game over.

Good take and first-time volley from Knoyle goes just wide.

Griffiths with a decent freekick attempt from distance saved by Evans.

Rovers need a spark from somewhere and it’s hard to see where it’s coming from. The hosts look comfortable here.

Cheltenham continuing to toss balls into Rovers’ box, win headers and win second balls. It’s not pretty but it’s proving to be effective.

Clayton picks up a second yellow card and is sent off.

The midfielder went up for a high ball and referee Peter Wright thinks he led with his arm.

This is very quickly turning into a miserable afternoon.

Sloppy from Clayton and Mitchell has to make the save from Ramsey.

Panic stations from the resultant corner. Not a great start to the half.
