A rare goal from central defender Troy Brown late on was enough to give the Robins the three points in a game they dominated for long spells.

He said: "I really was hoping that we could take advantage of being the only game of the day in League 2 because three points would have put us in a really good position.

"But although we played some decent stuff in periods we had to defend for long spells because they dictated the pace for quite a lot of the game.

"But once again we fell the wrong side of the thin line that seems to decide a lot of games in this league.

"We missed the best chance of the game to score with about 15 minutes to go and then gave away a silly free kick a few minutes later which they scored from."

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.
