The Star’s Rovers man, Paul Goodwin, assesses the performances at the Keepmoat Stadium.

MARKO MAROSI 6

Had no chance with Kennedy’s stunning free-kick. Rarely called upon but saved well from McCallum’s header late on.

CRAIG ALCOCK 7

Defended competently and showed a good range of passing. Rovers look stronger at the back since his return.

MATHIEU BAUDRY 6

Another accomplished display from the Frenchman, although Orient offered little threat.

ANDY BUTLER 6

Needlessly gave the ball away in the build-up to the free-kick that Orient scored from. Otherwise steady.

NIALL MASON 7

Solid enough defensively and confident on the ball. His delivery into the box occasionally let him down.

JORDAN HOUGHTON 7

Went about his business in typically competent fashion and took his goal very well.

MATTY BLAIR 6

Popped up in some good areas of the pitch - and got his reward by winning the first penalty.

JAMES COPPINGER 8

Showed some brilliant touches throughout and carried a significant threat going forward.

TOMMY ROWE 8

Offered class and composure in the middle of the park, his mazy dribble led to the second spot kick.

LIAM MANDEVILLE 7

Two competently taken penalties will only add to his growing self-belief. Has grown in stature in recent weeks.

JOHN MARQUIS 6

Quiet in front of goal but held the ball up well and brought others into play.

SUBS USED

ALFIE BEESTIN

Given a late run-out. Too late to make any impact.

WILL LONGBOTTOM

Came on in stoppage time for Mandeville.

Louis Jones, Cedric Evina, Joe Wright, Paul Keegan, Will Longbottom, Riccardo Calder.
