Doncaster Rovers: Player ratings from the Stevenage clash
The Star's Rovers man, Paul Goodwin, assesses the performances at the Lamex Stadium.
MARKO MAROSI 7
Whether it hit the post first or not, keeping out Lee’s downward header at 2-0 was a key moment.
CRAIG ALCOCK 7
Started the game very confidently and made one or two vital tackles.
MATHIEU BAUDRY 6
Quietly went about his business. He wasn’t given the space or time on the ball to really get his passing going.
ANDY BUTLER 8
Defended excellently in the first half and capped a solid 45 minutes with a goal. Came more under the cosh after the break but continued to put his body on the line for the cause.
NIALL MASON 6
Played his part in a good defensive display in the first half - before the tide turned.
JORDAN HOUGHTON 6
Kept things simple. Quiet by his standards.
MATTY BLAIR 7
Worked hard, tracked back well and scored a quite sensational volley for good measure.
JAMES COPPINGER 6
Less effective than recent games. Drifted in and out of the game.
TOMMY ROWE 7
The most penetrative of Rovers’ midfielders during their first half purple patch.
LIAM MANDEVILLE 7
Unsurprisingly has an air of confidence about him at the moment. Took his goal superbly to make it six in six games.
JOHN MARQUIS 7
On the fringe of the game before his header led to the vital fourth goal. Very harsh if it goes down as an own goal!
PAUL KEEGAN 5
Came on for Mandeville in an attempt to wrestle back some control but struggled to make an impact.
ANDY WILLIAMS 5
Got ten minutes under his belt but saw very little of the ball as Rovers ended the game on the back foot.
