The Star’s Paul Goodwin gives his verdict on Rovers’ 1-0 win against Grimsby Town.

MARKO MAROSI 6

Alert when he needed to be - but rarely tested by the visitors.

MATTY BLAIR 7

Filled in admirably for Craig Alcock at right back. Defended well and attacked the by-line when he got the chance.

MATHIEU BAUDRY 7

Made one risky first half tackle in the box but otherwise defensively sound. Developing decent partnership with Butler.

ANDY BUTLER 7

Looked determined to make up for his mistake at Plymouth and marshalled the back-line impressively.

NIALL MASON 7

Comfortable on the ball and showcased some good passing. He’s made the left back spot his own.

JORDAN HOUGHTON 8

Brilliantly went about his business in typically understated fashion. Cool and composed.

HARRY MIDDLETON 6

Wanted a bit too much time on the ball at times.

TOMMY ROWE 8

The best player on the pitch. Showed off some excellent close control and made things happen in and around the box.

LIAM MANDEVILLE 8

Playing with a swagger. Confidence personified. Brilliant free kick made it seven goals in nine games.

ANDY WILLIAMS 6

Continued his re-integration into the team with a hard-working 70 minutes. Starved of chances though.

JOHN MARQUIS 7

Might have done better with a couple of half chances but gave his all for the cause.

SUBS USED

RICCARDO CALDER 5

Brought on for Williams to bolster the midfield and did a good job, put himself about.

JOE WRIGHT 5

Came on for Middleton late on to add extra height at the back. Won a few headers.

Louis Jones, Paul Keegan, Tyler Garratt, Alfie Beestin, Will Longbottom.
