FT: Bristol Rovers 0 - 0 Grimsby Town

Bristol Rovers' first ever game in the Conference has ended goal-less.

After an uneventful first half, an impressive crowd of 7,089 saw new signing Matty Taylor denied by Grimsby goalkeeper James McKeown in the 60th minute.

Rovers 'keeper Steve Mildenhall made a great save from Paddy McLaughlin, while Town's Lenell John-Lewis should've done better from close range.


FT: Sheffield United 1 - 2 Bristol City

Bristol City's League One campaign has got off to great start after a 2-1 win at promotion favourites Sheffield United.

New signings Mark Little and Aaron Wilbraham combined to give City the lead in the 20th minute. Little's fantastic run and cross was headed in by the former Crystal Palace man.

The home side had several chances to equalise, before levelling through Michael Higdon in the 32nd minute.

Steve Cotterill's men took all three points when Wilbraham flicked the ball on to Wade Elliott who fired into the far corner.

It's City's first opening day win in 6 years, and their first win at Bramall Lane since 1957.

Bristol Rovers ready for life in the Conference

The new football season kicks-off on Saturday and Bristol Rovers have spent the summer coming to terms with relegation out of the Football League for the first time in their history.

The club's hoping to bounce back at the first attempt, but know it won't be easy with 12 former league clubs in the Conference.

They also face competition from West Country rivals Forest Green Rovers.
