Bristol Rovers player ratings for the season - according to the stats experts

The 2022/23 season has concluded for Bristol Rovers - and there's varying opinions on the best performers.

Bristol Rovers' 2022/23 campaign concluded, and it was a fairly satisfactory season after securing survival in their first season back in the third tier. At one point it looked like the Gas could have challenged for a play-off spot, but a strong January recruitment drive for their rivals, and a difficult period for them saw them lose their momentum.

A target of 52 points was set by Joey Barton before a ball was kicked and they ended up achieving 53 points, so they ended up meeting expectations. Next season will be huge, but a lot of players are leaving and it makes for an interesting summer, with the need for reinforcements massive.

We're only a few weeks removed from Rovers' defeat to Bolton Wanderers on the final day, and it means we can still reflect on the months of August to May, with what went right and what went wrong. The story of the season has to be the form of Aaron Collins, whose 16 goals and 11 assists saw him crowned the Player of the Year in League One. He was up against joint-top scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris and Barry Bannan, but Collins was recognised for his efforts in a side that finished below mid-table.

Collins was the standard bearer but was not immune from criticism from the manager. A few players had good loan spells, whilst others will want to put this campaign behind them and move on to the next.

Only including players that have made over five league appearances this season, WhoScored tells us who was the best player this season, and who was the worst.
