Liam Hoden delivers his assessment on how the Rovers players fared.
Marko Marosi 7
Steady performance in second straight clean sheet for keeper. Just needs to work on quick distribution.
Mitchell Lund 7
Did not offer a great deal going forward but a strong defensive performance from the youngster.
Joe Wright 7
Excellent composure under pressure in the second half. Growing into partnership with Andy Butler.
Andy Butler 8
Involved in great physical battles at the back but more than held his own. Key to team’s resoluteness.
Cedric Evina 7
Known more for his offensive work, he was excellent in defence, throwing himself into challenges.
Jordan Houghton 8
Gets better with every minute of experience. Added bite to midfield and sparked plenty of attacks.
Matty Blair 6
Quieter afternoon than recent but still an excellent outlet. Continues to be tireless.
Tommy Rowe 7
Forged an excellent understanding with Coppinger. Very lively over first half hour.
James Coppinger 8
The creative spark for so much of Rovers’ play with incisive passing. Created goal for Marquis.
John Marquis 8
A constant nuisance for Cheltenham with relentless running. Pressing play created several attacks as Rovers threatened in first half.
Andy Williams 6
Got into good positions in first half but will be disappointed to have not truly threatened Cheltenham goal.
Should have either scored or set up a certain goal when Cheltenham keeper was caught upfield.
Came on late to shore up Rovers to make sure of the win and did just that.
