Scott Harrison: Led the backline with gusto against the powerful home strikeforce. Performed strongly. 7

Brad Walker: Performed well but no where near Wright when forward headed Robins in front. 6

Carl Magnay: Switched to left-back and was busy down that side and performed well. 6

NIcky Featherstone: One give-away early-on aside, the skipper was his customary busy self. Had a good injury-time shot saved by Brown. 6
