Match ends, Bristol Rovers 3, Nuneaton Town 1.
Matty Taylor and Jake Gosling scored their first Bristol Rovers goals as they overpowered Nuneaton to record a fourth straight home win.
Tom Parkes put the hosts in front after just 71 seconds when Reice Charles-Cook fumbled Dave Martin's free-kick.
Taylor doubled Rovers' lead by converting Lee Mansell's pass, but a Gareth Dean header gave Nuneaton hope.
Gosling restored the two-goal cushion with a left-foot shot after being teed up by Martin to ease any home nerves.
Rovers have dropped only two points at home this season and move up to 10th in the table as a result of their victory.
Managerless Nuneaton, who parted company with manager Brian Reid earlier this month, drop into the relegation zone.
Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke told BBC Radio Bristol:
"I'm delighted with the team performance, although if I am nit-picking we could have finished the game off sooner.
"They scored a goal, which was sloppy from our perspective, but we bounced back.
"I believe we've got a good set of lads that are working hard for the club.
"We're trying to do to things right. The support is crucial and I thank the fans for that."
