And today could prove to be a key juncture in the League One relegation battle.

Rovers face a tough task at play-off chasing Wycombe Wanderers having not managed a goal in their last four games.

They hope to close the four-point gap on fifth bottom Fleetwood Town – who travel to bottom side Crewe Alexandra.

It’s all over here, and that’s probably extinguished any realistic hopes of survival.

Not a bad performance from Rovers but it’s not enough.

They’re susceptible at the back and can’t score goals and I’m afraid that’s only going to end one way.

Rovers seven points from safety now and in need of a miracle to stay up from here.

Stockdale with saves to deny Martin and then Younger. It just won’t go in.

Odubeko with an effort from close range cleared off the line. The goal drought goes on.

Bostock curls a freekick from distance just wide.

Bostock finds Griffiths in the box with a lovely ball but the Rovers man just can’t get it under control.

The worst case scenerio today was a Rovers defeat and Fleetwood win - and that’s how it is playing out.

Fleetwood now 3-1 up at Crewe.

Rowe’s hobbled off for Rovers to add to their woes. Horton comes on.

Mehmeti cuts inside and his shot squirms past Mitchell who got a hand on it but can’t keep it out.

Sucker punch.

Martin with another effort from distance but it’s straight at Stockdale. It opened up for him there.
