He found the side-netting with his first chance before Day then foiled him with his feet.Opposite number Owain Fon Williams had to be alert to tip Chris Zebroski's deflected 27th-minute shot over but Rovers were largely on top.Eliot Richards slid the ball wide a minute later before then being denied just before half-time by a fantastic full-length stop from Day.Marc Laird drove the ball down the throat of Day as he struck from range 10 minutes into the second period after Cole Stockton had sent a shot wide.Bell-Baggie's speculative effort came down on the roof of the Exiles' net and, despite their attacking dominance, Rovers ultimately failed to break down County's resilient second-half display
