HIGHLIGHTS | Rovers 1 Plymouth Argyle 3

30 January 2022

Rovers suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle at the Eco-Power Stadium.

Branden Horton had given Rovers a well-deserved lead on the tenth minute as the side created chance after chance in the early period. Matt Smith and Josh Martin both forced saves while Joe Dodoo and Mipo Odubeko both went close.

Luke Jephcott’s equaliser came against the run of play just after the half-hour mark and Rovers looked to have retaken the lead before half-time, but Tommy Rowe’s goal was ruled out by the assistant referee.

Rowe hit the woodwork soon after half-time, but the luck wasn’t with Rovers, and it was Plymouth who would go on to take all three points. Joe Edwards headed in a second on the hour and, while Rovers continued to press, Jordon Garrick's late strike sealed defeat for Rovers.
