ROVERS HAVE THAT EX­TRA BIT OF QUAL­ITY

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

IT WASN’T pretty, but Rovers won’t care.

Their hard-fought 1-0 win over Mans­field left play­ers and fans cel­e­brat­ing af­ter Donny’s pro­mo­tion to League One was fi­nally con­firmed af­ter sev­eral months in the off­ing.

It was noth­ing more than Rovers de­served for an im­pres­sive sea­son which has seen them right up there through­out.

There wasn’t a lot to chose be­tween the two teams, yet Rovers dis­played that lit­tle bit of ex­tra qual­ity in at­tack­ing ar­eas – the sort of qual­ity that turns draws into wins and se­cures pro­mo­tion. While the de­feat does not end Mans­field’s own pro­mo­tion hopes, it leaves them with a moun­tain to climb with just five games left.

Jake Kean was one bright spark for the Stags as he made save af­ter save to keep them in it; Mans­field will need him to keep that kind of form up if they are to claw their way back up the ta­ble.

They now sit four points off the play-off places.
