Doncaster Rovers were put in their place by Fleetwood Town as they went down 4-0 at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Here’s our Rovers player ratings. Do you agree?

MARKO MAROSI 5

Since he was sent off for handling outside his box against Portsmouth his confidence coming out appears to be very fragile. His challenge on Evans for the penalty was reckless in the extreme.

NIALL MASON 6

Given a tough time physically although did his best to get forward and get a few balls in the box before being sacrificed for Ali Crawford.

JOE WRIGHT 4

Beaten too easily in the air by Eastham for Fleetwood’s third goal and then was mugged by Hunter for the fourth. Missed a good headed chance in the first half to compound matters.

ANDY BUTLER 5

Outpaced and outmuscled by Evans in the lead up to the penalty and beaten in the air by Wallace for Fleetwood’s second.

DANNY ANDREW 6

Did nothing wrong but had little impact on the game from left back.

BEN WHITEMAN 5

Failed to get any sort of grip on the midfield and opted for long, ambitious balls into the channel a bit too often.

HERBIE KANE 6

The best of a bad bunch on the day. Buzzed around, kept possession and linked the midfield and attack. Most of Rovers’ best play went through him.

MATTY BLAIR 5

Quiet. Neat and tidy but there no was no sign of his trademark surging runs forward.

MALLIK WILKS 5

Made one or two things happen by getting into the channels and running at Fleetwood’s backline but he was kept on a leash by the visitors.

JOHN MARQUIS 4

Not his day. Wasted a great headed chance at 0-1, fluffed a one-on-one at 0-2 and then skied a sitter moments before the visitors made it three.

JAMES COPPINGER 6

Found pockets of space and put a chance on a plate for Marquis but floated in and out of the game before making way on the hour mark. 

SUBS USED

ALI CRAWFORD 6

Some nice touches and movement.  Likely to get a chance to impress against Grimsby.

ALFIE MAY 6

Plenty of enthusiasm in difficult circumstances. Tested Cairns with a decent effort from distance.

ALFIE BEESTIN 5

Replaced Wilks late on but had little impact.

SUBS NOT USED

Ian Lawlor, Tom Anderson, Danny Amos, Paul Taylor.
