Rovers turned in one of their worst performances of the season when slumping to a 4-0 defeat away at an in-form Uxbridge side.

After a fairly bright start by the visitors, it was Uxbridge who took control of the game and struck the opening goal on twelve minutes. Skipper Antonio Simeones crossfield ball to Cameron Sinclair was intercepted by Kai Hobbs and he launched a lightning counter attack. Troy Walters looked to have taken the wrong option but the ball was eventually recycled to Alex Witham who fired low beyond Sam Roberts for 1-0.

It was 2-0 on 22 minutes. Gideon Acheampong gave possession away on the right, and after Andrio Brandao had been marshalled out of the box, the ball found Jaden Sharman and his cross was expertly turned home at the near post by Ezra Ndukuba.

Rovers replaced Acheampong with Noah Africa, and the young midfielder injected some spark and fight into the Rovers side, and lured Alex Witham into a poor challenge that earnt the Uxbridge man a card. Simeone soon followed for Rovers as the tackle became fractious.

Rovers were offering little in attack, and any ball that did find its way forward was well dealt with by Uxbridge’s veteran defender Alan Hedley, and the ball attracting magnet he seemed to have somewhere on him.

The game was up on the stroke of half time, a long clearance by George Legg was flicked into the path of Brandao by Witham and although his shot was superbly saved by Roberts, the rebound was volley home by Ndukuba.

Going into the second half with only pride to play for, Rovers did a bit better, and the introduction of Max Oldham gave them some more attacking intent, but it was too little too late, by the time Oldham came on Uxbridge had added a fourth – Wilson Chingoka converting when through on goal.

A late flurry of Rovers attack forced a couple of corners, but all in all, a disappointing effort.

Rovers have still yet to beat Uxbridge in six attempts, and have only scored one goal.
