The managers post-match thoughts!

Bristol Rovers picked up their first three points of the season after a dominant performance by Darrell Clarke's men. Ellis Harrison's 89th minute winner was the difference but the Rovers boss was relieved that his side finally found the net.

"At half time when we were going in level it was a case of just keep doing what you're doing and the goal will come.

"The opportunities were coming but the longer the game went on you might have started to think that it wasn't our day but fortunately Ellis [Harrison] has had a great strike at the end that won the game for us."

Darrell changed the shape of his side with 20 minutes to go bringing on Jermaine Easter, Jeffrey Monakana and Cristian Montano to try and swing the game in Rovers favor with the Rovers boss claiming he will always look to change things if his side aren't winning.

"I will always keep probing and trying to change things if we aren't winning especially when they have gone down to 10 men.

"We wanted to change things to commit them down the wings and put balls into the box and one finally fell to Ellis [Harrison] who smashed it in."

Yeovil's keeper Artur Krysiak picked up the Man of the Match award for a string of vital saves but Darrell still wanted to praise the effort of his strikers.

"Their keeper has had a fantastic game, I can't criticise my strikers for hitting the target and making the keeper make saves.

"He [Krysiak] has picked one out of the top corner from Ellis [Harrison] and he has dealt with deflections, he had a brilliant game.

"Some people may say that we didn't score enough today but we will save those for another day!"
