Doncaster Rovers were made to work hard for an entertaining victory over Bradford City. Here’s how we rated the players...

MARKO MAROSI 6

Claimed the ball well at times and made a decent second half save from George Miller. He ought to have done more to prevent Miller’s goal though.

NIALL MASON 6

His distribution occasionally let him down but was generally defensively sound and offered plenty of energy down the right.

JOE WRIGHT 7

Coasted through the game at times and never really looked unduly troubled. Very fortunate not to concede a penalty for bundling over Eoin Doyle.

ANDY BUTLER 8

Recovered from a shaky start to completely boss things aerially. Dominant display from the club captain.

DANNY ANDREW 6

Tentative on occasions but also showed some composed touches.

BEN WHITEMAN 7

Another confident, classy display and he also put his foot in when required. He’ll be missed at Plymouth after collecting fifth booking.

HERBIE KANE 7

Class act. He sees things very early and his quality in the middle of the park has added another dimension to Rovers’ play. Impressive yet again.

MATTY BLAIR 6

A solid performance without really catching the eye or showcasing his powerful running with the ball.

JAMES COPPINGER 7

His quality really shone through at times, particularly when Rovers counter-attacked so impressively.

MALLIK WILKS 7

After a dip in form he’s got his mojo back. He pestered the Bradford defence all afternoon but was guilty of a bad miss at 2-0 that would’ve killed the game.  

JOHN MARQUIS 8

Two sensational finishes, in particularly the first. Set the tone again with his relentless pressing. 

SUBS

ALFIE MAY 6

Another impressive cameo. Ran with the ball and stretched Bradford’s backline.

PAUL TAYLOR 6

Some intelligent touches during the closing stages.

SUBS NOT USED

Ian Lawlor, Tom Anderson, Alfie Beestin, Jermaine Anderson, Danny Amos
