MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Joe Wright

Cen­tre-back has been an earl­y­sea­son suc­cess story for Rovers and caught the eye once more against Peter­bor­ough’s pro­fi­cient at­tack with an as­sured dis­play.

Bad day: John Mar­quis

Frus­tra­tion was etched across his face for large parts of the af­ter­noon. Missed a de­cent early chance and was booked late on. Not his day, but kept go­ing.

Key mo­ment: 25th minute

A sump­tu­ous curler from dis­tance from tal­ented Posh for­ward Mar­cus Mad­di­son is too good for Lawlor. But, thank­fully for Rovers, it re­bounds off the bar.

Ref watch: Gra­ham Sal­is­bury

Good com­mu­ni­ca­tion lev­els with the play­ers and was not too flashy with his cards. Blended into the back­ground well.

Ver­dict

Rovers did well to keep Posh’s strike force in check, but fi­nal ball and the de­ci­sion-mak­ing was a touch lack­ing fur­ther for­ward.
