Parry savours the winning moment

07 March 2010 10:45
Lee Barnard cancelled out Marlon Broomes' opener, which was the defender's first goal for the club, before a late penalty from Ian Thomas-Moore condemned the Saints to their first League One defeat of 2010.

Parry is now confident Rovers can keep clear of the relegation places and he said: "I was really hoping we would win because I thought we were a little hard done to during the game at Southampton (3-0 defeat in December).

"The lads did magnificently and can take a lot of pride from the performance. If they apply themselves as they did (against Southampton) for the rest of the season we should not have any relegation fears.

He added: "It was an excellent first goal of the season for Brooms, and Thomas-Moore could not have struck the penalty any better.

"The referee got big decisions wrong for both sides. I thought there could have easily been penalties awarded at each end earlier in the game."
