Scott Davies pulled off several fine saves to earn Fleetwood a point from a goalless draw at Bristol Rovers, who were denied a first win this season.

Davies showed bravery and agility to keep out two David Clarkson shots and a volley from Oliver Norburn.

Fabian Broghammer twice went close for Rovers with a header and a shot, while Joe Anyinsah looked dangerous at times.

The visitors failed to create a clear-cut chance and had to work hard defensively for their point.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee told BBC Radio Bristol:

"I'm disappointed we've not won the game, but I've been preaching that the arrival of Garry Kenneth will make us more secure.

"I think we were much more solid defensively and we gave ourselves a platform to win the game.

"If there's any criticism today then it's in the forward department.

"We're out there doing our best to find a replacement for Matt Harrold and we're looking to add another one."
