James Coppinger's first-half strike was enough to give Sean O'Driscoll's men victory against their League One neighbours.

To make matters worse for Wednesday, star striker Marcus Tudgay could only manage 29 minutes before being replaced by Neil Mellor.

Wednesday, who are in dire financial trouble off the pitch, will be hoping to fare better next week when they begin their League One campaign at home to Dagenham.

Rovers begin their Championship campaign next Saturday against Preston at Deepdale.
