Ricky Eaton’s side took the lead into the half-time break.

Rovers Marley Okosi then netted two consecutive goals in the 52nd minute and 69th minute to level the score line.

The Motormen restored their lead in the 74th minute when Asare grabbed his second of the night.

Rovers then equalised to earn a point out of the match as Danny Nesbitt scored in the 89th minute.
