It was a game of two halves for the Queenstown Rovers on Saturday at the Queenstown Events Centre, with the home team starting the second half with no goals and their opponent Northern sitting on three.

Queenstown Rovers coach Jamie Whitmarsh said his side ''defended poorly'' during the first half.

A push in the second resulted in two goals but another to tie the score never eventuated.

''We gave ourselves a mountain to climb [but] we got our act together in the second half,'' Whitmarsh said.

This weekend the Rovers play at home again, this time against Dunedin Technical.

''It's going to be difficult,'' Whitmarsh said.

''We seem to be good for 45 minutes but struggle to put a full 90-minute game together.''
