AN Easter weekend to forget saw Bristol Rovers take just one point from two relegation rivals and left us still nervously looking over our shoulder with two games of the season left, writes Stephen Knowlson.

Good Friday saw the Gas travel up to London to play a resurgent AFC Wimbledon who had put a decent run together to give themselves a chance of beating the drop.

Again, Rovers made a slow start with the Dons making the early running and carving out the better chances, so it was no surprise when they took the lead on 22 minutes. Hartigan played an excellent pass to Joe Piggott who curled the ball past Jack Bonham from 20 yards.

It could have been worse had Bonham not made a superb save from a Seddon header and then moments later Tony Craig cleared a Wordsworth effort off the line.

We came out with renewed vigour after half time and started to work Ramsdale in the home goal with the Dons stopper saving well from Gavin Reilly on the hour mark. The breakthrough came 10 minutes from time when Ollie Clarke shifted the ball onto his left foot and hit an unstoppable strike into the top corner of the Wimbledon goal.

It finished 1-1 and we took a deserved point back to Bristol. Struggling Rochdale were the next opponents - a team which had conceded a league-worst 83 goals this season.

A glorious Easter Monday afternoon in front of a large crowd at the Mem started with a minute’s applause for Gas legend Lindsay Parsons who had passed away the week before. However, the team were unable to mark the occasion with a victory, putting in one of the poorest home performances I’ve witnessed in over 40 years of support.

We were second best all over the pitch, bereft of attacking intent, nervous on the ball and lazy off it. Rochdale weren’t much better but they managed to snatch a late goal via the boot of Hamilton eight minutes from time. There was virtually no reaction from Rovers and we took away exactly what we deserved from the match – nothing.

Rovers are four points clear of the League One trapdoor with a difficult trip to Fleetwood this Saturday. A point will probably see us safe but a dramatic improvement is needed to achieve that.
