Game over. Season over?

In a game that demanded a big performance Rovers have delivered precious little.

Simply not good enough.

Five minutes to be added on.

Dahlberg produces an excellent save to keep out Martin’s effort from the edge of the box.

Rowe from a difficult angle drives a shot just wide.

Galbraith tries his luck from distance but it drifts wide.

Good little spell for the Gills, without them really testing Mitchell.

Another long range effort from Martin, saved again by Dahlberg.

At last one or two positive signs that Rovers may be able to get on top and put the Gills under some pressure.

Rowe on the overlap shoots but Dahlberg is equal to it.
