Rovers attacker Marcus Antonsson got his hands on the PFA Bristol Street Motors League One Player of the Month for November.

Marcus picked up the prize after amassing 42% of fans' votes and collected his gong from two Rovers supporters at the Senior Training Centre on Thursday morning.

Rovers fan Leanne Eaden said: "It was a great pleasure to meet Marcus and to hand him his award. It's not something I ever thought I'd get the chance to do so it's been quite surreal to be honest.

"I saw the opportunity to present the award on Facebook and was delighted when I got the email confirming I'd won the competition and the chance to meet Marcus.

Fellow Rover Lee Robinson told us: "It's a rarity for me to come down and see the players as unfortunately don't get to as many Rovers games as I'd like. However, what I can say is that this award is richly deserved for Marcus."

Marus admitted he was pleased with the collection of the trophy and meeting Rovers supporters.

"I'm very proud and thankful to both Lee and Leanne for coming down and presenting me with it. It's a sign that you have done something good and I'm very happy with it.

"It's been a good time for us all here at Rovers and we hope that can continue in the future."
