Newport County 0
Bristol Rovers 6
Goals from Wayne Brown (2), Ellis Harrison (2), Ross Staley and Mitch Harding saw a Rovers Development team register a comfortable victory against Newport County on Tuesday.
“A major positive from this game,” said Development Coach Marcus Stewart, “was that Shaquille Hunter got thirty minutes under his belt, his first game since picking up an injury at Ashton Gate during pre season.
“Newport fielded a side that were a little bit stronger than Swindon were the previous week and included a couple of more experienced players in their starting lineup.
“Although we put out quite a young side, they all applied themselves very well and adapted to the extremely windy conditions, played some excellent football, and scored six goals.”
Team: Sam Walker, Ross Staley, Trey Anderson, Tom Lockyer, Lee Brown, Ollie Clarke, Wayne Brown, Jordan Goddard, Shaquille Hunter, Ellis Harrison, Mitch Harding
