Lee Burge: 6/10

Not much he could have done about the goal. Looks a dependable second choice goalkeeper.

Conor McLaughlin: 6/10

Looked much more comfortable playing right back. Slightly shaky in possession.

Tom Flanagan: 7/10

Took some stick in recent weeks. Defended well today against a premier league attack.

Jack Baldwin: 7/10

The forgotten man looks to be back. A no nonsense display today.

Denver Hume: 8/10

Our biggest outlet in the first half. Made the equaliser. Looks much better in a back four rather than at wing back.

Luke O’Nien: 7/10

We needed his energy and spirit in the second half, picking up loose balls in the middle of the pitch.

George Dobson: 8/10

Quiet first half, his energy shone through in the second half, taking his goal very well.

Dylan McGeouch: 8/10

Our best player in possession, calmed things down when we needed him most — a quality performance today.

Lynden Gooch: 6/10

A little too excited at times. Looked quality with the ball at his feet.

Elliot Embleton: 6/10

Came in and did well today, gained confidence in the second half looking good on the counter attack.

Will Grigg: 8/10

Ran the line well today giving us an out ball nearly everytime. Took his goal very well showing that if we create the opportunities for him he will score the goals.

(SUB) Charlie Wyke: 6/10

Took over from Grigg well in leading the line for the Lads.

(SUB) Max Power: N/A

Not on long enough to make a lasting impression.
