David Raya - 5

Made a big error for Forest's goal as he came out to punch the ball, but missed it and flapped at pretty much every cross that came in to the box. Looks short in confidence.

Elliott Bennett - 7

He is the definition of 100% commitment. Threw his body in the way of every shot that he could and saved some goal bound efforts. Offered his services for Rovers in attack from his right back role.

Darragh Lenihan - 7

The Rovers defence looks completely different with the Irishman marshalling it. He was missed greatly during his eight week injury absence. Won headers and dealt with Lewis Grabban well.

Derrick Williams - 7

He was solid enough at the back and was very composed on the ball, played some brilliant passes out to Bennett on the right.

Amari'i Bell - 6

Struggled up against on-loan West Ham man Sam Byram, but stuck to the task at hand. Lost the ball cheaply deep in his own half, but did well to win it back in his own box.

Lewis Travis - 7

Another mature performances for the youngster - who is becoming a regular in the starting eleven. He keeps the midfield ticking over and is only going to get better.

Corry Evans - 6

Took a hefty challenge in the first half and I'm not sure if he fully recovered from that. Struggled to get in to the game and was replaced by Jack Rodwell in the second half.

Joe Rothwell - 8 (man of the match)

Looked full of confidence after his goal against Derby as he added to his tally with a brilliant, curling effort past Pantilimon. Was sharp on the ball and used it well.

Bradley Dack - 6

Did well to nick the ball off the Forest defence to go one-on-one with Costel Pantilimon, but he couldn't convert to give his side a cushion. Had a quiet game in Nottingham.

Adam Armstrong - 6

Was very quiet also. A lot of the play wasn't down his side in fairness to him. Had a good effort in the second half that was just inches wide of the post.

Danny Graham - 7

Scored the winner and the 150th of his career. Held the ball up well to bring others in to play and used his strikers instinct for the goal.


Graham off for Nuttall - 63rd minute

Evans off for Rodwell - 69th minute

Dack off for Brereton - 86th minute
