Doncaster Rovers 2-0 Blackpool: Matt Scrafton's player ratings from Keepmoat Stadium defeat
Blackpool's five-game winning run came to an end last night with a 2-0 defeat against Doncaster Rovers.
Here's how Pool's players rated:
Mark Howard - 6
Beaten all ends up by Herbie Kane’s swerving effort and little he could have done to stop the second.
Ryan McLaughlin - 5
Caught out of position over on the right-hand side for Doncaster’s opener and hauled off on the hour mark.
Donervon Daniels - 6
Won the vast majority of his aerial duels but conceded possession a little too often with some wayward passes.
Ben Heneghan - 6
Had his hands full with the dangerous John Marquis but kept him fairly quiet up until his late goal. Always an aerial threat.
Curtis Tilt - 6
Made a couple of vital blocks to deny Doncaster a second and came close with an effort at the other end early on.
Joe Bunney - 6
Squandered a priceless chance to give Pool a first-half lead but attacked well on his first league start since August.
Jay Spearing - 6
Had a tough job up against the talented Herbie Kane. One of his quieter evenings in a Blackpool shirt.
Harry Pritchard - 5
Struggled to get in the match having been deployed in a deeper role which doesn’t seem to suit his game.
Jordan Thompson - 6
Had a quiet start to the game but looked like the only player likely to make something happen in the second period.
Nathan Delfouneso - 5
Should have given Blackpool an early lead with a clear-cut chance from within the six-yard box. Otherwise quiet.
Armand Gnanduillet - 6
Fluffed his lines with a presentable chance early on but came close with a rasping drive at the start of the second half.
Subs usedMichael Nottingham - 6
For McLaughlin, 60
Another player who was unfortunate to find himself on the bench, but made no real impact in the half an hour on the pitch.
Joe Dodoo - 6
For Pritchard, 64
Unfortunate to find himself on the bench after his recent form in front of goal and forced to feed off scraps when he came on.
Chris Taylor - 6
For Bunney, 75
Gave the ball away a couple of times towards the end but had no time to stamp his authority on the game.
