Rovers win is a career high - Trollope

Published Add your comment

Bristol Rovers first-team coach Paul Trollope insisted steering his Coca-Cola League One side into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over Southampton was up there with the best moments of his career.

The former Wales midfielder reached the last eight as a player in 1997 with Derby and saw his side earn him a second chance to reach the last four after Rickie Lambert´s late deflected free-kick sealed a deserved win over an under-par Southampton.

Trollope said: "It´s a big achievement to get into the quarter-finals."
