The Star’s Paul Goodwin assesses the individual performances in Doncaster Rovers’ 2-1 win over MK Dons.

IAN LAWLOR 9

Made several important stops in the first half to keep the game alive and produced his best save in the second half to deny Agard.

NIALL MASON 7

Took a little time for him to feel his way into the game but offered good composure on the ball.

JOE WRIGHT 6

Lacked the sort of conviction and authority he has shown on a regular basis this season.

ANDY BUTLER 6

The back four as a whole was jittery and even Butler looked nervous at times.

TYLER GARRATT 5

Handed an opportunity to impress at left back but failed to really grab it with both hands. His distribution needs to improve.

RODNEY KONGOLO 4

He was at fault for Aneke’s goal and never really got into the game before being hooked at half time.

JORDAN HOUGHTON 6

He was the only one in the first half to find another red and white shirt with any regularity.

BEN WHITEMAN 6

Gave a decent account of himself on his return to the team and also provided a goal threat from midfield.

TOMMY ROWE 6

Battled hard again, this time on the left side of the diamond, but was given very little time on the ball.

JOHN MARQUIS 7

Put himself about in typical fashion and claimed his seventh goal of the season - but did he touch it?

JAMES COPPINGER 7

His performance went up a notch as Rovers clicked into gear in the second half.

SUBS

ALFIE BEESTIN 8

The young lad changed the game with a fearless, dynamic display and two assists. Is he the answer up front?

MATTY BLAIR 7

There might not be a more popular goal scored at the Keepmoat this season. Took it very well.

MATHIEU BAUDRY n/a

Came on at the death to waste some time.
