I thought he was awful - he took up some great positions, but didn't know what to do when he got the ball in them. Tried to turn back towards his own goal and most often either lost possession or ended up turning his opportunity into just a throw-in and killing momentum.
Contrast with both Payne or Armstrong who clearly aren't wingers either but have a game awareness that allows them to see options quickly, and they aren't afraid to be direct in their running while in possession.
Actually what stood out for me was that in the first half Rovers' midfield did very little in terms of dictating the rhythm or tempo of the game - Smallwood was very effective as a stopper and giving cover, Evans didn't do anything wrong particularly, but he's too similar to Smallwood as a defensive shield, and while he will try to play the odd forward ball, he didn't seem very good at it, and often too late. A big contrast when Bennett was switched in there - he is more mobile and more direct, and gives more threat supporting the wider players. As a right back he did a decent job supporting Conway, and the 2 of them looked threatening- trouble being they weren't getting the ball quickly enough - it always seemed to need Mulgrew - having received a backwards/sideways ball from the midfield - to sling a long diagonal out to Conway. Conway did ok til he got a knock first half and put 3 or 4 really good balls behind their defence into the 6 yard box, with no-one really threatening them - Graham seems to go back post and Dack didn't seem to get there in time.
Its nothing new though, Rovers midfield has been dysfunctional for years now, I can't remember when it last had personnel that you felt were bossing the game and could pick a pass that would open up a defence. I kindov hoped at the start of the season Whittingham could be the person to do that, but clearly isnt up to it - this season it may not matter, I still think we're more than good enough to see us through and get automatic promotion, next season would be a worry with the same squad.
As a final thought - the Bristol Rovers fans I was sat with were terrified of what they thought Rovers would do to them, they were all adamant they would 'lose by 3' and were delighted firstly to score, and secondly to get a draw. They said there was a huge gulf in class and were amazed how pedestrian we were, they all agreed we were different class in the 10 to 15 minutes after the penalty when we played the ball on the deck, and should have had at least 2 more goals from open play. No-one could believe the Williams miss!! [I still cant]
