Player Ratings Vs Doncaster: Lowe’s hard work earns him top marks

editorial image

Ian McLoughlin - 6 - After a shaky start, made a couple of good stops. Didn’t have much to do, all told though.

Dean Lewington - 6 - With Doncaster barely threatening, the skipper looked more of a threat going forward than at the back.

Adam Chicksen - 6 - Redeployed at right back again, the versatile Chicksen had another trouble-free night.

Antony Kay - 7 - Along with the rest of the defence, had little to trouble him as he out-muscled Hume every time.

Shaun Williams - 6 - A quiet night in defence for Williams. Had little to trouble him.

Darren Potter - 7 - Visibly lifted to see his midfield partner in crime back on the bench and showed his class on the pitch. Clever passes, smart runs and almost had a goal to his name too after a good move saw him in behind.

Chris Lines - 7 - Seems to be finding his feet and understanding his role better too. Two decent shots in teh first half, and marshalled the midfield strongly.

Luke Chadwick - 7 - Looked a threat while he was on the pitch but worringly had to be replaced after 36 minutes and is likely to miss Saturday’s trip to Sheffield United.

Dean Bowditch - 7 - Ever a threat on the left flank, Bowditch could’ve had a couple of goals on the night, but had to settle with a free kick coming back off the post.

Daniel Powell - 7 - Fresh from his new contract signing, he looked like a man keen to impress. And he did with a spectacular strike to double Dons’ lead. Put in some dangerous crosses, and his quick feet almost saw him worm his way through at the death.

Ryan Lowe - 8 - Industrious as ever, but had to change his game when Chadwick went off. Playing behind McLeod, he caused havoc as Doncaster didn’t know how to pick him up.

Subs:

Izale McLeod - 7 - With his spirits lifted after his comeback goal, he was desperately unlucky not to have won a penalty in the second half and add to his tally.

Mathias Doumbe - 6 - Came on in the closing stages, though the defence still had nothing to do.

Stephen Gleeson - 7 - Was feeling his injury as he warmed down, but great to see him back on the field. His goal was the cherry on the top.
