REF: Charles Breakspear (Surrey)

Football is a game of special moments and we have seen a ridiculously special one this afternoon.

The man of the hour produced a piece of brilliance to secure a hard fought point deep in injury time against a promotion rival and a former boss to boot.

It simply writes itself when it comes to James Coppinger.

After an error strewn and frustrating first half, Rovers were fully deserving of a point after their second half efforts.

What a moment. What a day.

All over - what a finish



It writes itself ladies and gentlemen.

On the day he is honoured by wearing his own kit, James Coppinger curls in an absolutely beautiful free kick to level deep into added time.

Absolutely stunning.

Play has been restarted

Honeyman is still being worked on here.

There's going to be a tremendous amount of added time with seven minutes having passed since the seven minutes of added time were shown.

George Honeyman has been down for a while and is being stretched off.

Seven minutes

James Coppinger and Scott Robertson replace Jon Taylor and Matt Smith

Jason Lokilo replaces Josh Sims
