The opening period was very open, with neither goalkeeper forced into too much action. Lawlor was the first to be called upon, tipping away James Henry’s powerful shot from the edge of the area after 17 minutes.Rovers pushed towards the end of the half, with Rowe getting a header on goal from a James Coppinger corner after 32 minutes for Simon Eastwood’s first save of the game.The midfielder was at the centre of everything good for the visitors as the half drew to a close, crossing for Marquis to force another stop from Eastwood and winning a free-kick which Coppinger just could not get over the wall.There were no changes from either side at the interval, with Marquis and Ben Whiteman getting early shots away which went just side.Marquis was an absolute workhorse again, and did brilliantly to collect a long clearance from Lawlor and hold up play, freeing up space before playing the ball across the area agonisingly in front of Beestin.Rowe went closest of all for Rovers after 57 minutes, after being asked to take a more direct approach by manager Darren Ferguson at the break.He ran into the area from the left, similar to how he had before scoring against Scunthorpe in his previous outing, before placing a shot which came back off the inside of the post and rolling agonisingly across the length of the goal.That was as close as Rovers got to scoring, but it was not for a lack of effort. 533 more words
A lacklustre game in Lancashire however Rovers become the only team to stop Fleetwood scoring at their Highbury Stadium Fortress.
Rovers named an unchanged team which drew to South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United last weekend however it was Fleetwood who made the brightest start. 390 more words

It started disastrous as Rovers conceded a penalty in the 35th minute of the game as Ian Lawlor wrestled Chris Bush to the ground, the Irishman lucky to get away with a yellow card in all honesty. 581 more words
