MATCH RATINGS

Joe Fryer: The saves he made you'd expect him to make, but some great saves nontheless. 8

Kenton Richardson: Difficult opening exchanges against Myles Weston but, like always, improved quickly. 6

Scott Harrison: With the exception of his daft wrestle at the end with Cowan-Hall, he had a great game and went closest to scoring. 8

Brad Walker: Running out of nice new things to say about this fella. Imperious at the centre of defence and looked fabulous bringing the ball out. 8

Nicky Deverdics: Asked (ordered in fact) to fill in at left-back and had a great game in a position he'd probably not like to be in. 7

NIcky Featherstone: Busy as ever in the midfield, usual good shift. 6

Michael Woods: Burst into the box a la Cambridge but on this occasion got in the way of Amond. Unfortunate, otherwise canny. 6

Lewis Hawkins: One of those days when stuff he tried did not come off. Subbed. 5

Lewis Alessandra: Bright, inventive, enthusiastic, if anyone was going to pull out a goal/ pass it looked like being him. Alas no. 8

Nathan Thomas: Got past his man a time or two, but there was no end product sadly. 6

Padraig Amond: Did not receive much of a service unfortunately and the time he looked 'in' Woods got in his way. 6
