Rovers took the lead courtesy of Mark Harkin in the first half after being put through by Johnny Minnock.
Rovers went in at half time a goal to the good but they felt aggrieved that they didn’t add to this score line after it seemed that Darren McElwaine was man handled in the penalty area, but their appeals for a penalty were turned away by Donal McCafferty.
McCafferty then awarded Fanad another penalty after another clash which seemed to have been committed outside the penalty area. This time second half sub Eunan Kelly made no mistake from 12 yards out and gave Fanad all three points
The result puts Fanad level on points with Rovers on 6 points along with Cockhill Celtic and Derry City Reserves at the summit of of the league.
