The Star’s Paul Goodwin gives his player ratings from Doncaster Rovers’ emphatic 3-0 FA Cup win over Scunthorpe United.

IAN LAWLOR 7

Confident and commanding display. Made an important save from Morris and an impressive one to keep out Goode later on.

NIALL MASON 8

Did not put a foot wrong and made a vital goalline clearance.

JOE WRIGHT 7

More than played his part in a committed and composed defensive performance from the team as a whole.

ANDY BUTLER 7

Another impressive afternoon’s work. Relished the physical battle and imposed himself.

TYLER GARRATT 6

A steady but unspectacular performance. Replaced by Toffolo when Scunthorpe started to get on top after the break.

BEN WHITEMAN 8

Classy and combative display in the midfield holding role. Composed in possession and very astute positionally.

MATTY BLAIR 8

Started the game brilliantly and a full-blooded tackle of his arguably set the tempo. Fingers crossed on his calf strain - because he looked back to his best.

TOMMY ROWE 8

Scored two very timely goals - both the result of persistence - and stood up to be counted in the midfield battle.

JAMES COPPINGER 7

Bishop left one on him in the first half but despite the physical stuff he buzzed about and laid on Mandeville’s goal.

ALFIE BEESTIN 7

Showed one or two flashes of his undoubted talent and linked up well with Marquis.

JOHN MARQUIS 8

Tireless display. His harrying and pressing, in the 90th minute, led to Mandeville’s goal.

SUBS

RODNEY KONGOLO 6

Played a key role in the build-up to Rowe’s second.

HARRY TOFFOLO 6

His introduction seemed to quieten Duane Holmes.

LIAM MANDEVILLE 7

Looks full of confidence right now. Excellent finish for his goal.

SUBS NOT USED

Marko Marosi, Craig Alcock, Mathieu Baudry, Issam Ben Khemis.
