Ratings: Angel Delight as Rovers beat Huddersfield


Daniel Ainsworth hands out his player ratings as Rovers pick up their successive home win with victory over Huddersfield…

Note: The players are rated on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest.

Thomas Kaminski 6

Faced one shot on target and it was Koroma’s well taken goal that Kaminski could have done little about. A quiet afternoon for the Belgian really, and that makes it hard to give a rating.

Ryan Nyambe 6

I’ve been wanting him to score all season – just in the opposition net instead! Got forward pretty well and dealt well with the Huddersfield threat. His own goal was just one of those things that comes with being a defender.

Darragh Lenihan 7

Prepared to put his body on the line and did so a couple of times. Passing was not the best but his overall defensive game saw no issues of note.

Taylor Harwood-Bellis 7

Showed, once again, why Manchester City fans rate him so highly. Dug in when Rovers looked most vulnerable, sweeping up the danger and that helped us go on to win comfortably.

Amari’i Bell 7

Sloppy at times but he was a real outlet down the left hand side. Got forward well and delivered a couple of positive crosses.

Corry Evans 6

Started well but as Rovers came under pressure, he began to struggle. Was good to see him move a bit further forward with the three/four goal cushion.

Lewis Travis 7

Strong defensively and offered something going forward, playing a pivotal role in the third goal which gave Rovers some much needed breathing space.

Joe Rothwell 7

Got forward well and was forever pressing the Huddersfield defence. Some lapses in concentration saw some pretty wayward passing early on but grew into the match.

Ben Brereton 8

The chance he missed early on could have affected him, but he grew into the match and after scoring the second Rovers goal, he wasn’t easy to stop and gave the Huddersfield defence a tough time.

Adam Armstrong 9 (MAN OF THE MATCH)

A recurring threat and Huddersfield – especially ‘keeper Schofield – will be glad the ninety minutes are done. He took his goals well and deserved the match ball. Will probably be frustrating he didn’t add more though!

Sam Gallagher 8

Gave the full-back a torrid time. Took his goal well and grabbed an assist for Brereton’s goal. A really positive afternoon for Gally.


Jacob Davenport (on 64 mins, replacing Lewis Travis) 6

Kept things running in the midfield. Good to see him get more minutes following injury and should be a regular next season.

Elliott Bennett (on 74 mins, replacing Ryan Nyambe) 6

Brought on with Nyambe showing. Didn’t have too much to do.

John Buckley (on 74 mins, replacing Joe Rothwell) 6

Alongside Davenport, he kept things moving in the midfield and looked threatening going forward.

Harvey Elliott (on 74 mins, replacing Sam Gallagher) 6

Kept Rovers moving forward and looked promising.

Tyrhys Dolan (on 74 mins, replacing Adam Armstrong) 6

Like Elliott, his drive helped run the clock down and he did that well enough.
