Many Bristol Rovers fans have taken to Twitter to react to their side’s 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea under-21s last night in the Papa John’s Trophy.
The Gas originally took the lead after Luke Thomas scored in only the seventh minute of the game to seemingly put the hosts in control of the contest.
However their young opponents came roaring back thanks to a Niall Lovelock own goal and a strike from the more experienced Lewis Baker as the Blues emerged with the Victory at the Memorial Stadium.
Naturally it didn’t take long for the Bristol Rovers faithful to react to the result, with many taking to social media to air their views on what they saw from their team throughout the 90 minutes.

Unlucky Gas. Too many players (young and older) who hadn’t previously got much gametime. Result was inevitable, but not the end of the world.

result is literally irellevant – as long as our rotation players get good minutes to keep sharp, that's all that matters

Not a horrendous result given our dev squad plays once a year and theirs plays twice a week. https://t.co/AiSFkSywPS
