editorial image

Mark Tyler: 6 – Bullet header gave Tyler no real chance, but his handling was assured on a largely quiet afternoon.

Steve McNulty: 7 – Instant cult favourite with the home faithful and turned in a no nonsense, if at times messy defensive display.

Janos Kovacs: 6.5 – Timed his challenges well and largely assured, although there were times when he and McNulty doubled up as they unnecessarily went for the same ball.

Alex Lawless: 6 – A minute of madness saw him twice needlessly get himself booked as his sending off put Luton on the back foot.

Jon Shaw: 6 – Won a few decent flick-ons, forced once fine stop out of Russell but missed a gilt-edged chance to give Luton the lead after the visiting keeper had flapped at a corner.

Jake Howells: 6.5 – Combined well with Martin on the left and impressed with his all-round game at left-back with Taylor benched.

David Martin: 6 – Started well and looked to have developed forged a fine understanding with Gray as he set up the forward’s opener, but faded before being sacrificed following Lawless’ sending off.

Scott Neilson: 5.5 – Looked dangerous when he saw the ball, sadly the ball was infrequently worked out to his wing.

Jonathan Smith: 6.5 – Quick on to several loose balls, played some telling passes and forced to cover countless miles, especially after Lawless’ dismissal.

Ronnie Henry: 6 – No thrills defending from Town’s captain, but was unable

Andre Gray: 6.5 – Looked dangerous early on, scored a good goal, nice turn to win the penalty but his composure deserted him as he blasted it over and faded from thereon in.

Arnaud Mendy (sub): 5 – Game was wide open in the middle and struggled to get to grips with t he visitors’ greater numbers there.

JJ O’Donnell (sub): 5.5 – Made an impact with his energy and tenacity as he made a constant nuisance of himself.

Stuart Fleetwood (sub): 5 – Lacked support and was struggled against Rovers’ rough-housing at the back.
