Forest Green (4-3-3)

Jo Woolacott - seven Not a huge amount for the Bristol City loanee to do.

Whenever Bradford got in and around his box their shots were generally wide or blocked before they reached him. A stunning reaction stop in the second-half certainly caught the eye.

Udoka Godwin-Malife - six Athletic and looks a real find, but his passing was a bit scratchy at times and he was eventually hooked off by Mark Cooper. More to come from this millennial.

Farrend Rawson - seven Back in the team following concussion. Diligently stuck to his task and looked impenetrable alongside Matt Mills.

Matt Mills - eight Stood up to be counted when Bradford had their moments of pressure in the early part of the match with firm challenges. Unlucky to be handed a second yellow in stoppage time and will now miss Rovers’ next league match.

Liam Kitching – seven Full league debut for the Yorkshireman at Bradford. Dealt well with the challenge of dealing with veteran strikers Clayton Donaldson and James Vaughn. Hooked late on.

Carl Winchester - seven Got through a prodigious amount of work in the midfield engine room and a vital cog in this youthful side.

Kevin Dawson - seven Up and down all afternoon with minimal fuss. Forming a solid base with Winchester in the middle of the park. His super pass conjured the goal.

Ebou Adams- eight Never shirked the responsibility of getting attacks moving and was on the money from minute one. His perfectly timed tackle never deserved a card.

Joesph Mills - eight Surely has the highest average match rating thus far this term? Flawless, unflappable. Enjoyed the freedom of playing as a left-sided attacker. A real goal threat and made it three goals for the season with his match-winning header in the dying embers of the game.

Dayle Grubb – eight First full league start of the season and didn’t disappoint. His ball carrying was a delight to watch and he was at the fulcrum of Rovers’ attacking intent. Came close to a couple of goals himself. His delightful ball to sub Matt Stevens was pivotal in the move to the winning goal.

Shawn McCoulsky - six Never stopped running. Good off-the-ball movement, but needs a goal to get up and running.


Dom Bernard (on for Godwin-Malife  54min) - six

Shored things up at the back.

Nathan McGinley (on for Kitching 68min) - seven

Defensively solid and should be pleased with his late contribution.

Matt Stevens (on for McCoulsky 79 min) – seven

What an impact. Celebrated fatherhood this week with an energetic late cameo.
