Seem to say this week-in, week-out but could not be blamed for the goals... 6
Hauled off at half time, not at all sure he was injured... 5
Could well be his last game of his loan spell. Struggled in his farewell, if so... 5

Had a shocker in the first half but the one thing about the defender is he never goes hiding... 5
A difficult debut but could not be blamed for the goals... 5
Played in a more central role. Went close with one free-kick in the first period... 5
Little to no impact either defensively or going the other way... 4
Looked less than pleased when he was hauled off. Not his worst day, either... 6
Played as a left forward. An experiment that did not really work all that well...5
Worked his socks off. Hit the bar with one rasping effort. All to no avail... 7
A big chance to shine but he failed to grasp it. While he is a clever player with a decent touch, he lacks the ability to hold it up in a central role... 4
(For Kenton Richardson 46) - Caught out over the top at will. Lack of pace was there for all to see. Scored, though... 4
(Forr Mark Kitching 46) - Not a half of football where he influenced... 5
(For McLaughlin 57) - Added an energy and athleticism sadly lacking on the day... 5
