Last updated : 20 April 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Maik Taylor - Hardly tested and unlucky with the goal.

Tebily - So-So - went to sleep for Rovers equaliser.

- Never put a foot wrong.

Martin Taylor - Did ok.

Sadler - Superb - getting better with every game played.

Pennant - Excellent until an untimely exit.

Butt - Immense performance rewarded with a goal.

Johnson - Worked his socks off - again.

Gray - Arguably his best performance of the season.

Heskey - Led the line well but another blank sheet.

Sutton - Some nice touches but should have opened the scoring.


Melchiot (for Pennant, 37) - Didn't do too bad.

Forssell (for Heskey, 67) - A Premiership goal from open play at last.
