HIGHLIGHTS | Rovers 2 Mansfield Town 3 (Emirates FA Cup)

5 December 2021

The goals and highlights as a young Rovers side fall to a 3-2 defeat to Mansfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup.

It was the prefect start to the tie for Rovers when quick passing saw them break away with Aidan Barlow finding Branden Horton unmarked to rifle into the roof of the net for his first professional goal, but experience told in the second half as goals from Will Forrester and George Lapslie (2) took the game away from the young Rovers side.

After a difficult 20 minutes in the second period, Rovers rallied with Tommy Rowe at the heart of everything good for Rovers. It was fitting that he should be the one to capitalise from the free kick he won in the 84th minute to make for an interesting finale.

Rovers threw defenders forward in the final minutes but were unable to get the third goal needed to take the tie to a replay.
