Ron-Thorben Hoffmann: 4/10

No chance with any of the goals, made a good stop with his foot to prevent a fourth but let down by his defence.

Carl Winchester: 2/10

Suddenly looks all at sea at right back, no provided with enough cover but leaving too much room for crosses to come in and his attacking threat seems to have disappeared.

Tom Flanagan: 1/10

Is being beat to easily to the ball in the last few games, is the senior partner in the Doyle/Flanagan partnership and has to be more assertive.

Callum Doyle: 1/10

Being dragged out of position too easily, opened up room for Wednesday’s opener by shifting our defence towards the left and has to do better with crosses coming into the box.

Dennis Cirkin: 3/10

No real protection in front of Cirkin once again but most of Wednesday’s attacks came down the other side. Tried to get forward, without much luck.

Luke O’Nien: 1/10

Battled all game but it is actually a game, so at some point he has to play football and with that he is struggling really badly at the moment.

Corry Evans: 4/10

Was composed in the middle of the pitch, as things went to pot out wide. Didn’t do much wrong but he’s got to organise the team better in the position he’s in.

Dan Neil: 4/10

Still lacking the defensively but one of our brighter sparks going forward in the first half. Had a good strike disallowed for offside.

Lynden Gooch: 1/10

Struggled to beat his man from the off, didn’t track the spare man for the opener and provided no real service for Stewart or cover for Winchester

Aiden O’Brien: 1/10

The game completely passed him by and not sure why he managed to stay on the pitch for so long.

Ross Stewart: 3/10

Worked hard but did not even have scraps to work off until a very late cross came in from Pritchard.


Alex Pritchard: 4/10

Had a shot on target from a free-kick and put a cross onto Stewart’s head late on, more than most of the starters accomplished.

Elliot Embleton: 3/10

Came on with the game already won.

Nathan Broadhead: 3/10

Nice to see Broadhead return from injury but no chance to make an impact.

Man of the Match: The Fans

Unlike the game against Rotherham when Ross Stewart was our lone bright spark on the pitch, tonight we didn’t have one on the pitch and the Man of the Match goes to the 4,000 who turned up to watch that abysmal performance.
