– Bristol Rovers (@Official_BRFC) November 18, 2022
Bristol Rovers were forced to share the spoils against Fleetwood last Saturday. Sean Rooney put the visitors ahead on 14 minutes before Josh Coburn equalized for Bristol in the 57th minute. And then Aaron Collins put the hosts in the lead ten minutes from time. Just when it looked like the Pirates might take all three points, Rooney netted his second of the night, nine minutes into injury time, to earn a point for his team away from home. Peterborough, on the other hand, scored three goals against Salford City in mid-week to advance to the second round of the FA Cup. Efron Mason-Clark opened the scoring, before Jack Marriott netted a late double to seal the win for the Posh.
