Rovers faced what manager Mark McGhee called the best team he'd seen in the league all season, Crewe Alexandra, and found themselves thoroughly outperformed in this League Two encounter.

The Pirates, who by this point in the season were guaranteed a mid-table finish, found themselves two goals down inside six minutes when AJ Leitch-Smith and Kelvin Mellor both scored early on. Crewe, featuring former Rovers goalkeeper Steve Phillips in their starting eleven, put the final nail in The Pirates' coffin early in the second half when Harry Davis scored from the penalty spot.
