Rovers started strongly and opened the scoring on the half-hour mark through a Neil Forsyth spot-kick after Sam Pickard had been brought down by Pier keeper Jordan Wood.

New boss Jordan Lee said: "It was a hard-fought victory, every man on the pitch gave everything.

"The joint men of the match for us were Neil Forsyth and Ellis Wilson."
