Rovers slipped to a hugely disappointing defeat against Southall on Saturday as they were given their own taste of the “Guernsey” treatment, conceeding twice in stoppage time to slump to defeat.
In a dour first half, it was Rovers who struck the only goal of the half when Gabriel Odunaike proved too strong for his marker, and allowed Nabeel Ghannam to stroke the ball calmly beyond Michael Edegbe.
The visitors came out strongly in the second half, but for all their possession and spells in the ascendancy, it was Rovers who went closest to increasing their lead when a powerful Bertie Lloyd header was brilliantly saved by Edegbe.
It was a save Rovers were to rue. Deep into stoppage time and with Rovers defending manfully, Southall found a gap and Anthony O’Connor struck to seemingly give the visitors a points.
But no, almost immediately Rovers tried to play a quick free kick, lost possession and Darreon Mark crashed home an unlikely, but probably deserved winner.
