Lee Burge - 6/10

Didn't have much to do. His kicking was alright and he dealt with his crosses well.

Luke O’Nien - 6/10

Supported Chris Maguire well when he had to, but quiet otherwise.

Alim Ozturk - 4/10

Poor, hoofed the ball consistently.

Jordan Willis - 6/10

Rarely beaten, much better than the past two weeks.

Conor McLaughlin - 5/10

Looks poor on the right of a back three, but even worse as a left back.

Grant Leadbitter - 5/10

Silly aimless long balls consistently, doesn't add anything to the team for me at all.

Max Power - 7/10

Passed the ball well enough and kept us ticking over. Always available for the ball and always tried to drive forward.

Chris Maguire - 5/10

Poor, expected much more. Lost the ball countless times and looked well off the pace.

Lynden Gooch- 7/10

Drove well at the defence and released it at the right times. Much better so far from Lynden.

Marc McNulty- 7/10

Goal and an assist - good evening for McNulty in attack.

Will Grigg- 5/10

Unlucky not to have bagged himself a goal first half, but won nothing all game and was nullified with ease by Stanley. Once again goalless.

(SUB) Aiden McGeady - 7/10

What a goal son! What a goal!

(SUB) Charlie Wyke - 7/10

Brilliant finish to seal the victory.

(SUB) George Dobson - n/a

Brought on too late to make an impact.
