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."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
