Matty Blair impressed for Rovers.

Marko Marosi 6

His handling was solid throughout and he also punched well when under pressure. Good save from Grant's free-kick.

Niall Mason 7

Concentrated on doing the simple things well. A really consistent performer so far this season.

Joe Wright 7

Another impressive display from the young centre back. Won key headers all afternoon.

Andy Butler 6

Stood up to the physicality of Collins and made several important clearances.

Danny Andrew 7

Gave the side nice balance, showed excellent composure on the ball and got forward to good effect.

Herbie Kane 6

Typically busy in midfield but not quite up to his usually very high standard. Faded after a bright start. 

Ben Whiteman 7

Took his goal very well and showed plenty of endeavour in the engine room. He's stepped up to the plate in that central position.

Matty Blair 8

Scored an absolute beauty and put a serious shift in for the team. Kept the ball well too.

James Coppinger 6

Neat and tidy without really penetrating in the final third. Switched to tip of diamond in second half and found more space.

Mallik Wilks 5

Went close with a second half curler but struggled to make any real impression on the game. 

John Marquis 6

Worked as hard as ever but didn't quite have the rub of the green and gave the ball away a few times. 

SUBSTITUTES

ALFIE MAY 6

Positive impact from the bench. Ran the channels, caused problems and harried defenders.

JERMAINE ANDERSON 6

Did more in 15 minutes than he did for an hour against Blackpool. Got into good advanced areas and covered plenty of ground.

PAUL TAYLOR N/A

Replaced Coppinger for the last ten minutes '“ not enough to really get into the game.
