Bristol Rovers 2 Cheltenham Town 0

The Gas play League One Cheltenham Town in the first group stage of the Football League Trophy, in what is a welcome break from the troubling league campaign and an chance for Joey Barton to try some different players and provide additional game time for the squad.

This competition has been devalued over recent years in what should be a good opportunity for The Gas to go on a cup run.

The other opponents in this group stage are Exeter City and Chelsea U21.

A positive first half saw The Gas create a number of good chances, with good sustained pressure, but both sides go in level at half time.

Sam Nicholson scored a well deserved goal early in the second half, the Rovers pressure providing an end result. Harvey Saunders doubled the lead on 70 minutes.

A deserved and much welcomed victory for The Gas. Hopefully we can build on this and take confidence into Saturday. It is always good to win, and wins build confidence and momentum.

Barrow 1 Bristol Rovers 1

The Gas fail to take advantage of Barrow being down to ten men for over an hour. An extremely disappointing performance, the team appears devoid of ideas and a gameplan. This season is looking very worrying, with the team starting off with relegation form. Joey Barton has decided to start from scratch with a new squad, and it is not working so far. We look a million miles from promotion candidates at the moment. Looking more like a fight for survival at the end of August. Still very much early days, but definitely not the start that any of us were looking for.

Exeter City 4 Bristol Rovers 1

Any hopes that our season had been kick started last week was destroyed within 25 minutes as The Gas conceded three early goals. From that point onwards the game was over. Patience is now running thin as our Great Reset is clearly not working. Not enough of our first choice eleven are fit, which is solely down to the management team. Hardly the start that any of us were looking for. The Gas always seem to start slowly, and that trend continues.

Bristol Rovers 1 Oldham Athletic 0

The Gas record a very welcome victory at home, for the first time in a very long time. A tale of two halves, we destroyed Oldham in the first half, and could have been four or five up by half time. To be fair to Oldham, they had the better of the second half and could so easily have equalised or even won the game with a handful of excellent chances. A vitial early victory, and the hope that we have turned the corner.

Bristol Rovers 0 Cheltenham Town 2

Rovers continue their losing streak with yet another game without scoring, only able to create a single goal on target. Many changes from Saturday as some players on the fringes and injury list are given some game time. The priority is clearly the league, so let us all hope for a better result on Saturday against Stevenage.

Mansfield Town 2 Bristol Rovers 1

The new season opens in a similar manner to most of last season, with a narrow single goal defeat thanks to a 96th minute penalty. A point would have been a good start to the new campaign, we were unlucky to lose this one. Very concerned with the lack of discipline, hopefully that is down to the referree rather than a sign of things to come… Very early days, and we rarely win an opening game. Amazing to hear fans back at football. UTG.
