Doncaster Rovers were made to work hard for an entertaining victory over Bradford City. Here’s how we rated the players...
MARKO MAROSI 6
Claimed the ball well at times and made a decent second half save from George Miller. He ought to have done more to prevent Miller’s goal though.
NIALL MASON 6
His distribution occasionally let him down but was generally defensively sound and offered plenty of energy down the right.
JOE WRIGHT 7
Coasted through the game at times and never really looked unduly troubled. Very fortunate not to concede a penalty for bundling over Eoin Doyle.
ANDY BUTLER 8
Recovered from a shaky start to completely boss things aerially. Dominant display from the club captain.
DANNY ANDREW 6
Tentative on occasions but also showed some composed touches.
BEN WHITEMAN 7
Another confident, classy display and he also put his foot in when required. He’ll be missed at Plymouth after collecting fifth booking.
HERBIE KANE 7
Class act. He sees things very early and his quality in the middle of the park has added another dimension to Rovers’ play. Impressive yet again.
MATTY BLAIR 6
A solid performance without really catching the eye or showcasing his powerful running with the ball.
JAMES COPPINGER 7
His quality really shone through at times, particularly when Rovers counter-attacked so impressively.
MALLIK WILKS 7
After a dip in form he’s got his mojo back. He pestered the Bradford defence all afternoon but was guilty of a bad miss at 2-0 that would’ve killed the game.
JOHN MARQUIS 8
Two sensational finishes, in particularly the first. Set the tone again with his relentless pressing.
ALFIE MAY 6
Another impressive cameo. Ran with the ball and stretched Bradford’s backline.
PAUL TAYLOR 6
Some intelligent touches during the closing stages.
