Substitute Tom Hitchcock fired in-form Rovers to a 1-0 triumph with seven minutes left to play, condemning the Dons to a third consecutive loss.

"It's our third successive 1-0 defeat," Ardley said. "If I knew why we aren't seeing games out I would do something about it, but it has to stop.

"There is nothing wrong with the attitude of the players, although we are lacking quality in certain areas.

"Rovers have been in great form, yet I felt we more than contained them and were having the better of the second half.

"How the goal has come about I'm not sure, but it sums up the way things are going for us."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
