Rovers 4-0 Espanyol

Goals from Steven Reid, Morten Gamst Pedersen and a Shefki Kuqi brace saw Rovers wrap up their pre-season schedule in style against a Spanish outfit who had two players sent-off.

On a sour note second half substitute Matt Jansen was stretchered from the pitch just ten minutes after entering the game after a reckless challenge by Espanyol keeper Carlos Kameni - who duly saw red for the crude challenge.
