No Joy For Etheridge

Thursday 4 October 2012 09:24

Neil Etheridge suffered his first loss since joining Bristol Rovers on loan as the Pirates went down to a 1-0 home defeat to Cheltenham Town on Wednesday night.

The Fulham goalkeeper, on loan with League Two Rovers for an initial month, started his third game for the club.

But after Etheridge had saved Chris Zebroski’s initial effort, the Cheltenham striker slotted home the rebound on 39 minutes as the visitors claimed the points.

The result means Rovers, who sit in 21st place in League Two, remain without a home win this season.

They host mid-table Northampton Town on Saturday (3pm).
