Rovers provided tough opposition, but Spurs always had the edge after Tommy Fitzgerald gave the team a fourth minute lead with a curling shot.  The away side hit back with 35 minutes gone, as Stewart Henderson converted from close range.  Shaun Murray looked odds on to score until a defender got himself in the way to deflect the shot for a corner.
