It’s finished here.

Rovers have at least ended on a high note at home, with two well-worked goals from Dodoo and Martin.

The players are showing the fans their appreciaton for their support.

Rovers’ relegation has not been confirmed today but it will be either on Tuesday night or next weekend.

Saydee fires an effort just wide for Burton.

Lovely goal.

Griffiths slots in Martin who rounds Kovar and tucks it home.

Big chance on the counter but Martin’s shot lacks conviction.

Saydee fires just wide a tight angle.

Burton are pushing for that equaliser.

Knoyle gets away with a mis-kick as Niasse fires wide.

Powell fires wide from the angle of the box.

Burton on the front foot following the restart.

Olowu with a good block as Chapman tried his luck.

We’re back underway here.

It’s worth pointing out that if things stay as they are Rovers’ relegation would not be confirmed today.
