A last-minute equaliser from John-Joe O'Toole earned Rovers a point against Hartlepool United in this League Two fixture.

Matt Harrold had given Rovers the lead ten minutes before the break, but a goal from Luke James just one minute later, and a second from him in first half injury time saw the Gas behind at half time. Just as it was starting to look like defeat was inevitable, O'Toole slotted the ball past the Hartlepool 'keeper with just seconds left on the clock to snatch the victory away from the Pools.
