The first goal after eight minutes came from Adam Dalby, who fired in a free-kick from the edge of the penalty box.
Steve Holder headed home Jake Wayne’s cross to double the advantage on 15 minutes, before Rovers almost reduced the arrears when a header from a corner came back off the crossbar.
Dalby’s cross bounced over Rovers’ ‘keeper Jack Cherry just after the hour to put The Jockey’s 3-0 up before Mark Webster’s shot made it 4-0 on 75 minutes.
Two minutes later Marcus Hunt pulled one back for Rovers with a volley from a corner and the deficit was further cut on 89 minutes when Martyn Farrant headed home from a corner.
