Good first half. City had the more chances, take too many touches, but Rovers holding their own and an excellent finish from Lloyd after good work from Smith and Ferrier.
There is more than a touch of arrogance in those comments. 'How dare you tackle our little darlings !'. Either they want a physical match that truly replicates the men's game, or they don't.The Manchester Evening News report presents Rovers as very physical singling out Ollie Banks who “takes a break from trying to kick every City player in sight” to convert the penalty. I didn’t think it was that physical though Delap could certainly look after himself and Banks didn’t seem to merit that remark.
