'The Christmas party is cancelled' – Graham Coughlan reveals half time message to Bristol Rovers players after remarkable comeback

The Gas boss also said they were going to be roped into training tomorrow

Bristol Rovers manager Graham Coughlan revealed he cancelled the players' Christmas party at half time during their stunning comeback win over Southend United at the Mem.

The Gas were 2-0 down to Sol Campbell's team at the break after a shambolic first half, but after 'reading the riot act' at the interval, Coughlan's men dominated the second period to win 4-2.
