Rovers player ratings vs Burton as Evans and Conteh stand out in defeat

Jed Ward – 6

Couldn’t do anything about the goals. Frustratingly, it’s another similar story where the opposition’s best chances have ended up in goals. Good save at the end to prevent it from being 3-1.

James Wilson (off for Tristan Crama 86′) – 6

Similarly to Tuesday, not the experienced defender’s best game but you wonder where the Gas might have been without him.

Elkan Baggott – 6

Evidently decent in the air given his height. Some bright spells but is still settling in with his new teammates.

George Friend (off for Jevani Brown 31′) – 5

Only lasted just over half an hour having picked up a knock early in the first half and never looked settled afterwards. Hopefully nothing serious.

Luke Thomas – 6

Not far off of a seven in all honesty, he always looked to be one of the players who could create something out of nothing for the Gas, especially to get themselves back into the game after going behind. One of Rovers’ better performers on a tough day.

Josh Grant (off for Luca Hoole 71′) – 5

Had a real handful in Ademola Ola-Adebomi to deal with all game and struggled in spells. Started the game in midfield but slotted into defence when George Friend came off in the first half.

Kamil Conteh (off for Harry Vaughan 71′) – 8

The midfielder really shone as the Gas struggled to get a firm grip on the game, getting in plenty of interceptions and tackles. Such a mature reader of the game at 21. Personal man of the match and is looking to be a shrewd purchase early on into his Rovers tenure.

Lewis Gordon – 6

Not far off of a seven either. Put in some dangerous deliveries in the first half and was always there to lend a hand in the final third. A few decent moments defensively too.

Antony Evans – 8

Scorer of the goal and led by example, sporting the captain’s armband, when the Gas were chasing an equaliser. Always looked to be the man who would create something of note for his side but, in the end, they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Brandon Aguilera (off for Scott Sinclair 86′) – 6

We were excited to see the Nottingham Forest loanee play in his preferred advanced role for the first time but the Costa Rican struggled to get on the ball in the opening half an hour before dropping slightly deeper after Friend’s withdrawal. A bit similar to Tuesday night, evidently has plenty of talent but found it tough to execute it in a physical game.

John Marquis – 6

Tried his hardest to link up with his teammates in order to get service but the striker hardly had any scraps to feed off of. This was a good opportunity for him to make a statement with Chris Martin suspended but didn’t have much to work off of.

Substitutions:

Jevani Brown (on 31′) – 7

Another who can hang his head high for the Gas. After struggling for game time lately, the attacking midfielder came on with an hour to play and certainly made an impact, registering the assist for Evans’ goal. Certainly looked bright when on the ball in the final third and that performance could well affect his standings in the side going into Tuesday night at Stevenage.

Luca Hoole (on 71′) – 7

Certainly played his part, most notably with a crucial challenge to deny Antwoine Hackford who looked as though he was going to go through one v one.

Harry Vaughan (on 71′) – 6

Struggled to get on the ball which is a shame because his pace could’ve caused all sorts of issues against a tired defence with Gas chasing the equaliser.

Tristan Crama (on 86′) – N/A

Came on to allow Baggott to play centre-forward in the final stages.

Scott Sinclair (on 86′) – N/A

Not enough time to affect it but nice to see him back on the pitch.
