Taylor Richards – along with Smith, the goalscorer looked the most likely to open the door but he was taken ff as Darren Moore looked for something extra 7

Elliot Simoes – yet to really sparkle as a Rover 6

Jason Lokilo (for Taylor, 62) – brought a bit of spark 7

Ed Williams (for Richards, 62) – came on and did a job 6
