By James Masters, November 14, 2011

Fraser Saville believes Haroldeans have been given a real wake up call after they crashed to their first defeat of the season and were dumped out of the Peter Morrison Trophy.

Rovers manager David Domb has likened Sporting’s style of play to that of Tony Pulis’ Stoke ahead of the weekend’s clash at Frederick Road.
