Daniel Ainsworth hands out the ratings as Rovers lose at Bloomfield Road…
Thomas Kaminski 6
The Belgian made a top save to deny Madine before Yates headed home, and he wasn’t tested too much otherwise.
Tyler Magloire 4

Really struggled in the right-back position and it has been a tough week for Magloire. Positionally poor for both goals.
Hayden Carter 6
He was given a tough test by the experienced Madine in the first half, but looked solid in the second. Unfortunate that his block looped in.
Daniel Ayala 7
I worry what the score would have been without Ayala. Seemed to spend most of his time in the air heading the ball away.
Harry Pickering 6
Was limited getting forward in the first half and struggled defensively, but as Rovers got a hold of the match a little more, he improved.
Lewis Travis 6
A poor first half by his standards, giving the ball away a couple of times and being out of position. However, he was a key figure in the second half and dominated the midfield.
Joe Rothwell 6
Saw a bit of the ball but didn’t have too much success. Looked a little tired towards the end and this limited his impact.
John Buckley 7
The main focal point for Rovers going forward and grabbed an assist with a delightful cross to Brereton Diaz. Slowly becoming a key player for this team.
Sam Gallagher 5
He didn’t look 100% and that left him struggling to make an impact. Couldn’t get on the ball much.
Tyrhys Dolan 6
Helped Rovers get moving when they looked otherwise lethargic but he couldn’t muster anything meaningful.
Ben Brereton Diaz 6
Struggled in a disappointing first half, but he got a goal in the second and that is when his positive moments followed. Glad to see him already in double figures!
Tayo Edun 7 (replaced Sam Gallagher after 43 mins)
Controlled proceedings following his introduction and he was vital in helping Rovers get back into the game. Showed why Lincoln fans were sad to lose him.
Reda Khadra 5 (replaced Tyler Magloire after 81 mins)
Tried too hard to make an impact and as a result, he couldn’t make too much of an impact. Needs more time off the bench.
Dan Butterworth N/A (replaced Joe Rothwell after 89 mins)
Came on late and wasn’t given the chance to make an impact.
