Highlights of the Sky Bet League One game between Bristol Rovers and Fleetwood.

Fleetwood goalkeeper Alex Cairns saved an 87th-minute penalty from Jonson Clarke-Harris to earn his side a goalless League One draw with Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

Paddy Madden was judged to have brought down Rovers substitute Alex Rodman, but Clarke-Harris saw his low spot-kick deflected up onto the crossbar by Cairns, who saved with his feet.

Fleetwood created the better chances. Danny Andrew fired over from their best opening after 60 minutes and three minutes later Lewis Coyle had a shot tipped onto a post by new Rovers goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.

Neither side created much in a low key first half. Madden volleyed at Blackman in the 26th minute and was denied by a smothering save from the Chelsea loanee two minutes later.

For Rovers, Ed Upson had a long-range volley saved and Josh Ginnelly fired over from inside the box just before the interval.
