Rovers 0 Shams 2: Recap
The 2016 season is underway as Rovers battled Shamrock Rovers last night at The Showgrounds with the visitors getting a 2-0 win.
There was plenty to be encouraged about from the new-look team as the game remained even despite red cards in both halves for the Bit o'Red.
See all you need to know from the game together here:
Dave Robertson: “The players don’t know when they are beat and they have that fighting spirit. Sometimes you don’t have to win a game or get three points to get clapped off and think the fans here know exactly what to expect from the players and from me and that’s what we will give them.
"If we show that level of pride, that level of character and that level of energy then throughout the season mix that with the quality we have got in the team then we will convert more of those performances into results.”
