Pirates performance pleases boss

Rovers fell a goal behind to Adam Boyd's eighth of the season but rallied and snatched the win with goals from Jeff Hughes and substitute Darryl Duffy late on.

"It was a big win for us, said Trollope. "It was always going to be interesting, remembering how many high profile games they have had recently and the mini-break we have had.

"I think we were a goal or two better the first half but bad finishing, wrong decisions and a bit of bad luck meant we went in at the break 0-0.

"We knew they would increase the tempo in the second half, which they did. They forced us back, and we contributed to that.

"They forced a few corners. We knew the delivery would be good and that proved the case. I though we handled the set pieces well apart from that one."
