Jon McLaughlin: 7/10
Largely untroubled, McLaughlin’s quick throws and decent distribution were a real bonus.
Conor McLaughlin: 7/10
Starting to look like the quality League One right back we were promised in the summer, used the ball well and put in some excellent crosses.
Jordan Willis: 7/10
Another impressive showing, he was alert when he had to be and secure in possession.
Joel Lynch: 6/10
Got away with a couple of lapses in concentration that could have been punished on another day.
Denver Hume: 8/10
Played with a confidence and swagger that has been lacking from his game all season, he also laid on the opener.
George Dobson: 7/10
Like Hume, Dobson looked like a much more confident rejuvenated player here, his long range passing was great.
Max Power: 6/10
Hard to remember too many substantial Power moments in the game, good or bad.
Chris Maguire: 7/10
Not at his best, but still a constant pest to the Southend United defence.
Luke O’Nien: 7/10
Took his goal brilliantly, linked up well with his fellow forwards.
Aiden McGeady: 7/10
Mainly acted as a decoy to the excellent Hume in the first half, McGeady began to dominate in the latter stages as more and more space became available to him.
Will Grigg: 7/10
Mainly played on the fringes of the match and squandered a few half chances.
(SUB) Duncan Watmore: 7/10
The final ball was inconsistent, but he was a lively menace and nearly scored.
(SUB) Marc McNulty: 6/10
Provided a well-needed energy boost to the side that were beginning to stumble over the finishing line.
(SUB) Grant Leadbitter n/a
Came on in the dying minutes.
