Jon McLaughlin: 6/10

Could he have done better for the Doncaster equaliser? Produced a great save after Maguire reinstated Sunderland’s lead - his distribution was pretty decent as well.

Jordan Willis: 7/10

Dependable throughout and used the ball effectively when in possession.

Alim Ozturk: 6/10

Couple of silly mistakes - what was that handball about?

Joel Lynch: 6/10

Didn’t cover his area effectively for Doncaster’s equaliser. Some good play mixed in with some lacklustre play as well.

Luke O’Nien: 7/10

Defended well and supported the attack effectively. Unlucky not to score after Gooch picked him out at the back post.

Denver Hume: 6/10

Lost his runner for the Doncaster equaliser and made a few daft mistakes, but made amends with a great pullback for Maguire’s goal.

Max Power: 7/10

Tidy in possession and marshalled the midfield well. Steady Eddy. Worked well with Dobson today and did a good job in winning the midfield battle. Made a great tackle in the dying minutes to halt the Doncaster attack.

George Dobson: 7/10

Battled well in the midfield and moved the ball well at times, too. His harrying forced Doncaster into making a lot of mistakes throughout the game - just what was needed.

Lynden Gooch: 9/10

Fantastic skill and strike for the opening goal. Linked up really well with Hume to create Maguire’s goal, and also put in a brilliant cross for O’Nien whose header was well saved.

Chris Maguire: 8/10

Slightly frustrating at times, but also created some good opportunities in the first half and hit the bar with a great strike. Scored a great goal after some fantastic play from Gooch and Hume.

Charlie Wyke: 8/10

Forced the Donny keeper into a great save during the first half, but also had an awful miss at the beginning of the second. His general play was really good today and was a handful for the Doncaster defence throughout with his energy and commitment.

(SUB) Duncan Watmore: 6/10

Came on for Gooch with ten minutes to go, provided the energy needed to keep asking questions of a tiring Doncaster defence. Should have picked his head up sooner in the dying minutes when Wyke was free in the area,
