Player Ratings


Paul Robinson - 6

Didn't really have to make any important saves other than the one in the dying minutes.

Ryan Nelsen - 5.5

A bad day for the skipper. Caught out of position at times.

Chris Samba - 6

A good assist from the big man to recover from his mistake early in the game.

Andre Ooijer - 6

Didn't have much to do in the game.

Gael Givet - 7

We're begining to see class from him. Very hopeful Rover next season.

Stephan Warnock - 6

Played well but really unlucky not to score at all

Tugay - 6

Did okay to distribute the ball around.

Keith Andrews - 6

Invisible man for the game.

Morten Gamst Pedersen - 7

Showed class to put the correct crosses in.

El Hadji Diouf - 7

I'm convinced by today's performance that he'll hold the right flank even when Emerton returns.

Jason Roberts - 7

Finally scored a goal with a nice twist that totally out-played the defender

Benni McCarthy - 6

Needs to start in order to make things work. Don't leave him on the bench anymore!

Aaron Mokoena - 6

Contributed nothing in particular.

David Dunn - 6

Contributed nothing in particular.

Thoughts

We're out of the relegation zone. Next game will be against Arse,it might be a tad too difficult? Nevertheless,it was a good performance by the lads today and the next game would be a big test of our resolution. Go Rovers!!!!!

The fans at the game were brilliant. Sadly I did not get to go due to stupid work but they all did us proud. Really lifted the team. The Rovers fans have stepped up a gear in the last few weeks.

A bit harsh with the rating there Helda don't you think dude?!?! I know we don't like to overdo it with ratings as it can be seen as a biased opinion, but mostly 6 is a touch harsh? Good read though nevertheless!

warock an 8 for me, but for inspired goalkeeping from the aussie he would of bagged a couple and took the fight to fulham, still think that andrews should not be in the team and we should play two up front, yes roberts grabbed the winner but its about time, his wasted chances in front of goal have been costly this season, and that helps a little for making up for some of them but not all of them, lets all hope he can find the net on a regurlar basis between now and the end of the season and keep us up
