Here is how we rated Rovers’ individual performances at St Andrews.
Faced plenty of shots but was rarely troubled and turned in a very commanding performance, particularly defending crosses.
Excellent going forward but looked vulnerable in defence with Jordy Hiwula enjoying the space he offered. Excellent run and low ball for Rovers' goal.

Another mammoth performance at the back, heading and blocking everything. Caught stretching to block Coventry's goal but commanding throughout.
Handed his full Rovers debut in place of the injured Cameron John. He struggled with Rovers' passing at the back in the initial stages but settled well and made very good blocks.
Offered plenty going both ways but particularly defensively when he gave Coventry little in the way of space.
Took his goal excellently and played some excellent passes in the first half but was less in control as the game progressed.
Showed excellent play in the first half but struggled to command the midfield as the game wore on and was a little overran.
A lively presence in the early stages but had difficulty imposing himself on the game for the majority.
Struggled for his typical influence for much of the game after a bright start.
His pace troubled Coventry but he struggled for end product. His dummy for the goal was smart and allowed Whiteman to sweep in.
A largely thankless task in the lone striker role during a first half in which Coventry had the better of things but he chased and hassled well before being forced off injured. Should have scored early.
On early in the second half for the injured Ennis. Added legs on the counterattack when Rovers needed it the most.
Did not have much time to influence the game after coming off the bench in stoppage time.
