The first team turned in possibly their worst performance of the season when they were well beaten by an Ashford Town side who barely had too get out of first gear.

It started badly, when Connor Youngs shot on five minutes took a deflection off Bert Lloyd to beat debutant keeper Harvey Keogh and Rovers never really recovered. A half chance for Tyrese Osbourne almost bought Rovers back into the game, but that aside it was misplaced crosses and passes that littered the Rovers game.

Ashford took a huge step towards all three points on the stroke of half time, when Juwon Akintunde was given the freedom of the area to fire through Keogh, and it really was game over five minutes into the second half, when Akintunde burst clear, bought a good save out of Keogh only for Young to poke home the loose ball.

Rovers introduced Mal Thomas and Daryl Coleman for Lindell Stewart and Osbourne, and had slightly the better of things when Lloyds powerful back post header was adjudged to have crossed the line despite the best efforts of Arber Grosha in the Ashford goal.

Keogh was adjudged to have bought down Young in stoppage time, and the Ashford man converted the penalty to seal his hat-trick and a 4-1 win.
