ROVERS treated their fans to a convincing 2-0 win over Lincoln City at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

The Gas were up for the contest right from the start, snapping into tackles and dominating their opponents.

The victory was a just reward for an excellent performance and the only disappointment was that we did not add to the goals tally.

A three or four goal winning margin would not have flattered the Pirates, such was our superiority over an Imps side who were outclassed in every department.

Mildenhall had a quiet afternoon, with very little to do in goal. The defence was also largely untroubled but Parkes looked assured whenever he was called upon.

The midfield did not miss Sinclair too much as they were in control throughout the fixture. The standout performer was Adam Dawson, the winger on loan from Leicester, who was deservedly given the man of the match award.

He was a revelation as he whipped in a series of excellent crosses, looked comfortable every time he had the ball and invariably found a teammate with his fine range of passing.

We looked a well balanced side with his creative talent and Clarke needs to move quickly to secure his services for longer, ideally until the end of the season.

Up front we also did not miss the injured Easter either as Taylor ran his socks off and was unlucky not to have scored a couple of goals.

He is forging a good partnership with the powerful Blissett and unselfishly squared for his strike partner to score our second with a tap-in.

Before that Lee Brown opened his tally for the season with a fine free kick and the rest of the contest was a classy exhibition of passing football and impressive commitment and desire.

Rovers remain in second place and with Barnet also winning, the gap remains at seven points. However, if the Gas keep up this form the lead may not be insurmountable.

We face a tough looking trip to promotion rivals Grimsby on Saturday where we need to return with at least a point.
