Lummers.Very confident.8 Partington.NOLE. Locker.6.One early pass gifted them a chance but obviuosly with his substitution he wasn't fully fit perhaps? Sweeney.Excellent. 8 Harris 5.good first half.Scored a great goal!!! Not as good as Browner but did all right.Bit rusty but good rest for Browner. Bodin.6 Did very little but what a strike for our goal. O Clarke. 7.Impressed and did a lot of work to set up our goal. Lines.8.real quality.One lovely surging run ,nearly scored. M.O.M. Sinclair.7.Had to change role following early Partington injury.Adapted well. Harrison . 4.Poor Gaffney.3.Hopeless. Monty.7.Had more shots than the rest put to-gether.Always has that extra bit of spark and quality.Involved in setting up our goal. Burn .Did OK.6 James 5.Very light weight.One tackle and he loses possession.Made a lovely through ball to Gaffney who muffed to chance. Ref. 7.Very fit and played the advantage rule well. P.Vale.4.We really should be beating such a poor team but had nothing up front.Not sure who we have to replace Gaffney and Harrison but they were dire. Crowd.Hate to say it but the few idiots who got arrested did us no favours. PS.£17 OAP to get in!!!!!!
Partington- NOLE Lockyer- 7 Solid Sweeney- 8 Lucky not to be sent off but a battler. Harris- 5 Beaten far too easily numerous times. Can't defend. Booked and an own goal. He hasn't played for a long time so I'll be generous with my mark.
Bodin- 6 Poor generally today. Very frustrating. Great strike made up for it. O. Clarke- 7 Battled hard. Lines- 8 Ran the game although seemed to be playing a different match to some of his teammates. Sinclair- 8 Gave their dangerous left winger a torrid time. Wouldn't give him space to breath.
Harrison- 5 Nothing of note Gaffney- 5 Didn't give up but not his day.
Subs: Montano- 6 Terrible passing and first touch but gave us an occassional spark. Burn- 7 Solid debut James- 7 Made a difference with some clever movement. Excellent pass through to Gaffers who miscontrolled.
Crowd- A few idiots spoil it for the majority. Ref- 5 Terrible Port Vale- 3

Results in and Chris Lines was Man of the Match with a score of 8.0. It is his 5th MotM of the season, the other four have been when scoring 7.9, 7.9, 8.0 and 8.1.
Of all the players to make their full Rovers debut this season, Harris' 5.3 is the lowest rating on debut. It is the lowest since Lawrence's 5.0 last year. The overall lowest score on debut is by Tyler Lyttle- 3.7.
Port Vale scored the fourth lowest opposition rating of the season with 3.80. Only Chesterfield (3.75), Northampton (3.53) and Bury (3.22) scored lower.
Starting XI (in this case only 10 due to Partington) average was 6.51.
