Millwall v Rovers...How they rated
7:52am Monday 31st March 2014 in Football
Paul Wheelock rates Rovers in the draw at Millwall...
PAUL ROBINSON 7 His poor clearance led to Millwall’s first penalty and goal but without his crucial late save Rovers would not have got a point.
MICHAEL KEANE 7 Mixed afternoon, scoring his first goal for the club before giving away the penalty that put the Lions back in front.
GRANT HANLEY 6 Possibly should not have let the ball bounce in the build up to his harsh sending off but hardly put a foot wrong before then.
MATT KILGALLON 7 Once again offered good distribution out of defence and his flick-on set-up Josh King to score the injury-time equaliser.
TOMMY SPURR 7 Asked to cover a lot of ground down the left flank, it was from his long-throw that Rovers levelled the contest late on.
CORRY EVANS 6 Not far away with a rising 20-yard volley in the first half after Jordan Rhodes chested the ball down into his path.
LEE WILLIAMSON 6 Like his team got better after Hanley was sent off, he got stuck in and attempted to offer support in attack.
CRAIG CONWAY 7 His superb set-piece deliveries caused Millwall – and their goalkeeper in particular – problems throughout the match.
DAVID DUNN 6 Taken off after Hanley’s red card, his highlight was a lovely threaded pass through to Luke Varney in the first half.
LUKE VARNEY 6 Wasted two excellent first-half opportunities, the striker was shifted to the wing after Rovers went down to 10 men.
JORDAN RHODES 6 Occasionally looked threatening, sending one shot at David Forde, but the decision to replace him with King was the correct one.
Substitutions CHRIS TAYLOR for Dunn 59, JOSH KING for Rhodes 76.
Subs not used: Simon Eastwood, Todd Kane, Markus Olsson, Bryan Dabo, Tom Cairney.
David Forde, Ryan Fredericks, Shane Lowry, Mark Beevers, Shaun Williams (Scott Malone 82), Carlos Edwards (Stefan Maierhofer 83), Jimmy Abdou, Owen Garvan, Fred Onyedinma (Simeon Jackson 59), Scott McDonald, Steve Morison. Subs not used: Stephen Bywater, Paul Robinson, Ed Upson, Martyn Woolford.
Man of the match
Created Rovers’ last-gasp leveller, defended solidly throughout and his long passes out of defence were a good outlet.Key moment
It would have been game over had Paul Robinson not saved with his legs from Simeon Jackson a minute from the end of normal time.
James Linington compounded his decision to award Millwall their first penalty by then sending off Rovers captain Grant Hanley.
How could it be anyone but the man in the middle? His decisions to award a penalty and send Grant Hanley off were awful.
