Have your say

Flinders 7 – Two crucial saves at 1-0 and deserved his clean sheet

Austin 6 – Solid on the whole but two bad mistakes which could have been costly

Collins 7 – Rarely troubled but did what he had to with minimum fuss

Hartley 7 – Like sidekick Collins was not flustered and did well

Horwood 8 – A danger going forward and showed real quality on the ball

Franks 6 – A super strike for the first on an otherwise quiet afternoon

Murray 8 – He’s back and you guess he’s there to stay after performances like this. MOM.

Sweeney 7 – Much better from the midfield man and was a constant threat with his telling, forward runs

Monkhouse 7 – Good form continues and an assist to boot

Howard 5 – Out of sorts somewhat and unfortunate penalty miss summed up his afternoon

Poole 5 – Started so brightly but faded badly before his withdrawal, a bit of a puzzle at present

Subs

James 7 – What a goal – that’s what he is capable of, let’s hope we see more of it

Holden 6 – Energetic but little more composure needed in final third
