Rovers turned on the style to make it two wins from their opening two games in the Under-18 Premier League Cup with a victory over Leicester City Under-18s.

All the action for Rovers came in the final 15 minutes thanks to four different scorers at Leicester's training ground.

George Wilson continued his fine form by scoring with 15 minutes remaining before Kyle Connell made it two just 12 minutes after replacing Sam Burns.

Enzo Boyomo pretty much made the game safe as he bagged the visitors' third with only three minutes left to play.

But there was still time for another goal, and Luke Brennan was the man to get it in injury time to ass gloss to the scoreline and put Rovers in a superb position in the tournament.

The result puts Rovers top of Group E with two wins from their opening two games in the competition.

Rovers: Winterbottom, Whitehall, Pike, Simba, Barnes, Boyomo, Brennan, Wilson, Burns (Connell, 70), Connolly (Durrant, 70), Vale.

Unused substitutes: Eastham, Barnett.
