As he ran out from the tunnel before the start of the second period, striker Kwame Thomas vomited on the pitch.

It was not a case of a miraculous recovery from any bug, according to Rovers boss Darren Moore. Instead, it seems to have been a fact of the game.

“It is one of them things with players having adrenaline, nerves and sugar levels or whatever it may be,” Moore said.

“He said once he got it up he was all right.”
