DRFC - Sulli makes top fifty in Actim Opta Index

Veteran keeper Neil Sullivan was Doncaster Rovers highest ranked player in the Actim Opta Index for the 2008/09 season.

Sullivan finished 41st overall with a total of 480 points, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake was the overall winner with 753 points.

The player`s points are worked out over the season in six different categories:

Contribution to a winning team, it`s worked out on how many points are won by the team when he appeared.

Performance in each match, points are allocated for their contribution such as clearances, saves, shots and tackles.
Points are also taken away for cautions and shots off target.

Points for minutes on the pitch

Points for goals scored

Points for assists

Points for clean sheets

The points are worked out by an ex professional footballer who attends the match and also studying video footage of each match for a detailed analysis.


The 39 year old shot stopper arrived from Leeds United in 2007 and started every game of the 2008/09 season, he was substituted in the final home League game of the season in the last minute which was to be the only time he missed in the whole season.

The former Scotland international put in a number of outstanding performances over the season and kept seventeen clean sheets in helping Rovers finish a very creditable fourteenth in the table in their first season back in the Championship in fifty years.

Thoroughly deserved after a fantastic season, I thought Rovers needed a new keeper at the start of the season, younger and a bit more agile but he proved me wrong.
