Rovers cruise past Gills in cup


The Canadian teenager was lively throughout and grabbed Rovers’ second goal less than a minute after half-time.

David Dunn got the ball rolling in the fifth minute.

Nicola Kalinic was the architect, getting free of John Nutter and laying the ball in to Dunn who slid the ball home under Simon Royce.

Rovers were two up within a minute of the start of the second half when the impressive Hoilett gave Royce no chance with a diving header after Keith Andrews’ cross was deflected to him.

Simeon Jackson pulled one back from the penalty spot 21 minutes from time for the hosts, but Morten Gamst Pedersen’s corner went in via an unfortunate deflection from skipper Barry Fuller five minutes later to seal the win.
