Bristol Rovers v Sheffield United Late Flourish!!!!!! Live Text Posted at 90'+1' Ollie Clarke (Bristol Rovers) wins a free kick in the attacking half. Posted at 90'+1' Foul by Paul Coutts (Sheffield United). Posted at 90' Attempt missed. Billy Bodin (Bristol Rovers) right footed shot from the centre of the box is too high following a corner. Posted at 89' Corner, Bristol Rovers. Conceded by Simon Moore. Posted at 89' Attempt saved. Cristian Montaño (Bristol Rovers) left footed shot from outside the box is saved in the bottom right corner.
Obviously Sheff Utd are top for a reason. Physically strong and powerful, they are slick, fast and counter with precision. Easily for me the best team in all departments to visit the Mem.
We helped keep them at bay and created one or two moments ourselves. I think both team happy with a point.
Again Sweeny, Locks combo reaped rewards. Solid.
Joanna Lumley pulled a worldy in second half but unwittingly set them up to hit post with poor clearance a bit after. Wow this lad has a kick on him....i swear one of his clearances should've registered as a shot on target!
Have to say dc masterstroke bringing on two wide men. Not for the personnel per se, but for change in formation, strengthening in widths, extra pace in right place and service providers for front two. For me, Moore has a long way to go....Monty looked brilliant, created space, broke with purpose and had decent shot well saved.
I hope our mid isn't judged too harshly. They had their work cut out and coped admirably. Sincs, Moore, Monty Ollie, Lines and Bodin all put in tremendous effort with varying degrees of attainment.
Rory never stopped running. Not sure what happened with his chance of glory. I gotta feeling he bottled it. I gotta feeling officials got it right. Such a shame as if he'd scored, I'm sure his confidence would've rocketed higher than Traitors miss v Derby. Gotta admire his heart though (on valentines day), his perseverance and endurance.
Well done Blade fans for turning up in numbers, making some noise, and supporting a club that will inevitably be in Championship next year. The roar when we had goal disallowed made me proud....we can turn the volume up at The Mem....and silence top of table 1,160 opponents.
Great crowd, Gas. Great performance and well played as a team. This is Rovers all over, an honest hard working display and a thoroughly well deserved point gained. Well done us, UptheGas!
Great game,especially 2nd half,good performance against a very good side. dc often uses the 2 wingers after an hour tactic and it certainly gave sheff utd problems tonight with montano and moore very lively. Gaffney should have scored when 1 on 1 with the keeper,no getting away from that im afraid.
