ROVERS TER­RACE TALK with Sam Ten­nent Away days put smiles on fans’ faces

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Motor Guide -

Can we play away ev­ery week? That’s the ques­tion Rovers fans are ask­ing af­ter another ter­rific per­for­mance on the road, this time against a much fan­cied Ar­broath side.

It would be fair to say that the re­sult flat­tered the home side with Rovers squan­der­ing sev­eral great chances dur­ing a breath­tak­ing se­cond-half per­for­mance which threat­ened to over­whelm the Red Lichties. That 45 min­utes fol­lowed a first half dur­ing which Brian Kerr’s men played a hugely ef­fi­cient counter-at­tack­ing game.

Two chances and two goals of real qual­ity from Alan Trouten and Gary Fisher left the en­thu­si­as­tic band of away fans in dream­land at the break.

The only slight down­side from this per­for­mance was the fail­ure to keep a clean sheet – es­pe­cially as this was by some dis­tance the best de­fen­sive per­for­mance of the sea­son so far from Rovers.

That’s three vic­to­ries in three away games so the big ques­tion is ob­vi­ously, can the boys trans­late their away form into per­for­mances that will gain points at Clifton­hill?
