Forest Green player ratings vs Sutton as Adams pinches it


Ash Loveridge scores his Forest Green player ratings vs Sutton United as Rovers opened the League Two season with a last-gasp 2-1 victory.

Luke McGee – six

A quiet day for Rovers’ stopper but neat and tidy when called on.

Kane Wilson – six

We didn’t see the lung-busting runs that made him the standout player against Swansea City, but plenty more to come from this impressive right-sided player.

Nicky Cadden- seven

Gave Rovers plenty of width and delivered a sumptuous cross with his unaccustomed right-foot to put the ball on the head of Stevens to hand Rovers a 30th-minute lead.

Dom Bernard – eight

An engaging young man off the pitch and a good player on it. Stuck to his tasks and made a number of vital blocks and interceptions.

Jordan Moore-Taylor – six

Back in his favoured middle of the back three spot and dealt well with anything Sutton tried to offer. Took a booking for the team in the first-half.

Udoka Godwin-Maliffe – seven 

Always dependable and in the right place to get several vital blocks.

Regan Hendry – eight

An impressive debut and improved as the game went on. Delicious delivery for Ebou Adams’ late winner. Rovers may have found the perfect replacement for Carl Winchester.

Ben Stevenson – seven

Solid debut in the midfield engine room alongside fellow left-footer Hendry.

Ebou Adams – seven

Struggled to make an impact from the get-go but quickly found his feet and popped up at the death to glance home a stoppage-time winner.

Matty Stevens – seven

A real fans’ favourite. Worked his proverbial socks off and was rewarded with a goal in the first-half. On this evidence, his partnership with Jamille Matt looks a promising one.

Jamille Matt – six

Rovers’ new captain led from the front and gave Sutton plenty to think about despite few chances falling his way.


Dan Sweeney (on for Cadden 83 min) – six

Jack Aitchison (on for Stevens 82 min) – six

Subs not used: Thomas, Allen, Evans, Young, Diallo
