Tyreece John-Jules’ goal wasn’t enough as Rovers fell to a 2-1 defeat against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Hull took the lead through Josh Maggenis on the 25th minute and until half-time, Rovers were under pressure finding themselves with plenty of defending to do. They did well to keep the deficit to just one goal at the break and started the second period more brightly.
The introduction of Tyreece John-Jules added a different threat going forward and the Arsenal loanee was on the scoresheet just 15 minutes after he came on. Rovers had looked the better team at that point but when Richard Smallwood’s long-range effort was spilled, Tom Eaves was able to tap in to an empty minute in the 86th minute to wrap up three points for Hull City.
