Here is how we rated the individual performances...

IAN LAWLOR 7

Four clean sheets in a row. Made an excellent second half save to deny Matthew Lund from close range and handled smartly throughout.

SHAUN CUMMINGS 6

Lacked conviction going forward but did his job defensively. Must improve his distribution.

TOM ANDERSON 7

Continued his good form with another dominant display at the back. Headed away danger in a way that was reminiscent to his successful loan spell last season.

ANDY BUTLER 7

Marked his 200th appearance for the club with a typically no-nonsense performance. Handled Lee Novak excellently.

DANNY ANDREW 6

A no-thrills performance from the left back. Went about his defensive duties diligently and used the ball well.

ALI CRAWFORD 7

Another busy display in midfield, offering plenty of energy and composure. Captain Tommy Rowe is breathing down his neck but will have to be patient.

BEN WHITEMAN 7

Continued his excellent form in the holding role and capped a solid all-round performance with an excellent strike.

HERBIE KANE 8

A joy to watch. Orchestrated things with an arrogance at times and his sixth goal in eight games rather summed up his tenacity and determination.

MALLIK WILKS 6

Looked dangerous when he ran at the Iron's backline and did well in the build-up to Whiteman's goal but was quiet for long periods.

JOHN MARQUIS 7

Deservedly struck his fifth goal in six games - his 15th of the season - following another typically tireless shift. 

JAMES COPPINGER 6

Involved in most of Rovers' best play before the break but remained on the fringes of the game in the second period.

Tried his best to make his presence felt as a late replacement for Crawford.

Replaced Coppinger during the closing stages.

SUBS NOT USED

Marko Marosi, Danny Amos, Jermaine Anderson, Paul Taylor.
