Bradley Dack made a goalscoring return to action, seeing Rovers in to the next round of the Ultimate Quaran-Team Cup tournament.

More than 8,000 fans tuned in to watch a live stream of the FIFA game, with Dack coming out on top against Stoke City winger Thibaud Verlinden to move Rovers in to the last 64.

Dack, recovering from a cruciate ligament injury, was passed fit to play the virtual game, and was involved in a tense battle with the Belgian infront of a bumper audience looking for their football fix during the coronavirus lockdown.

The figure watching wasn’t actually far off the 12,343 who turned up in person to watch the real thing when the sides met in the Championship last month.

Darragh Lenihan and Adam Armstrong were on target for Rovers in game one, with an injury-time leveller from the latter sending the tie in to replay as it ended 2-2.

A topsy turvy affair in the replay saw Rovers trail 1-0, lead 2-1, trail 3-2, before two late goals, including a late Dack strike, saw Rovers in to round two where they will meet Forest Green Rovers.

"Still sweating from win!" said Dack.

"Got a bit lucky in the end, I think, but what a performance. Chrissy (Walton), an absolute different class in goal and I've got to mention myself for getting the winner."

A total 128 teams from England and across Europe have entered the competition, with each club having an individual representative.

Players will play as their own team, with the competition helping to raise money for cash-strapped EFL clubs, as well as MIND charity and Covid-19 cure research.
