Subs make mark in friendly win

20 July 2010 10:02
Goals from substitutes Wayne Brown and Eliot Richards helped Bristol Rovers to a 2-0 friendly victory at Partick Thistle. Chances were few and far between in the first half but Rovers debutant goalkeeper Luke Daniels, who is on loan from West Brom, was on hand to keep out Brian Hodge before later putting pressure on Liam Buchanan to prevent a goalscoring opportunity in a goalless first half. Paul Trollope's men opened the scoring after 71 minutes when Stuart Campbell set up summer signing Brown to rifle home a right-footed shot from 22 yards. Richards' deflected effort in the final minute put the seal on a fine win for the visitors.
