A great start to the season for second division Rovers, against Premier League opposition in the cup. Rovers positive start to the game was rewarded with a typical poachers goal from Charlie Pitt before fellow striker Lefkos Constantinou put us two up for half time. A revitalised Rhodes pulled one back in the second half but Rovers stepped up the work rate again with a magnificent diving header from Charlie Pitt.
