The Star’s Paul Goodwin analyses the individual performances in Doncaster Rovers’ 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic.

IAN LAWLOR 6

Hardly called upon and could not do anything about the goal.

NIALL MASON 7

Went about his defensive duties at right back in confident fashion and offered more going forward than Garratt did on the left.

JOE WRIGHT 7

Another competent display. Read the game well and mopped things up all afternoon.

ANDY BUTLER 7

Brilliant goal-line clearance to deny Nepomuceno, brilliant goal, not-so-brilliant slip to let in Doyle.

TYLER GARRATT 6

Given a tough time by Obadeyi in the first half. Seems to lack a bit of self-belief.

JORDAN HOUGHTON 6

Neat and tidy on the ball but not as dominant as in recent matches.

BEN WHITEMAN 6

Showed decent composure on the ball and won the ball back on several occasions.

TOMMY ROWE 6

Seemed to operate deeper than normal and was kept relatively quiet - but came up with an excellent delivery for Butler’s goal.

ALFIE BEESTIN 7

Another encouraging performance from the youngster. Showed some deft touches and excellent vision, particularly in the first period.

ALFIE MAY 6

Worked the channels in typically determined fashion. He should have made the keeper work harder when he got clean through in the first half though.

JOHN MARQUIS 8

Excellent display. His hustle and bustle gave Oldham plenty of problems.
