HERE are the Doncaster Rovers player ratings from Tuesday evening’s League One home game with Portsmouth at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Keepmoat Stadium

Jones. Instantly shown faith by Butler after being handed his league debut and it was a night he will remember, even if he did not have too much to do. Denied a clean sheet at the death, but a rewarding night still. 7

Halliday: Showed assurance and intent in the first half and was solid in the second. Good night. 7

Wright: Steady away in tandem with Anderson and did his bit in a good team display. 7

Anderson: Would maybe have expected to be busier in the first half, but held firm on the restart. 7

James: Smart goal and a brilliant vital block right at the death. 8

Smith: Produced some nice moments in the first half especially and dug in on the restart. 7

Bostock: His pass to set up James’ opener was a touch of sheer class. Some delightful contributions and made it look easy at times before fading on the restart. 8

Taylor: Hobbled off in the first half after being injured in a block tackle with Raggett. His injury will be assessed. Did not look great. 6

Coppinger: Making his first start since mid-December, the old stager showed some moments of quality and helped see Rovers through. 7

Sims: Showed some clever footwork and nifty skills in the first half, before making way in the second. Had been suffering from a mild bout of illness ahead of game, so did well enough. 7

Bogle: Not too many sights of goal, but his team work was good. Another game under the belt. 7

Subsititutes: Okenabirhie (Taylor 28). Scored an audacious goal - his 12th of the season - from an acute angle. 7

Lokilo (Sims 63). Did his bit in the final hour or so. 6

Robertson (Bostock 64). Assist for Rovesrs' killer second. 7

Richards (Coppinger 76), 6.

Substitutes unused: Balcombe, John, Greaves.
