Lee Burge: 4/10

Poor clearance for goal and didn’t have much to do.

Frederik Alves: 6/10

Looked decent playing as full-back before being subbed off at the break.

Bailey Wright: 4/10

Nervy on the ball and not commanding in a side in desperate need of just that.

Tom Flanagan: 4/10

Showed glimpses of some of the horror shows he’s displayed in days gone by.

Dennis Cirkin: 5/10

Not his best performance played some stray passes and subbed at 70 mins.

Corry Evans: 4/10

Slow and offered little other than a couple of decent tackles in middle of park.

Dan Neil: 6/10

Was the bright spark in midfield and kept us ticking over but didn’t get much help.

Elliot Embleton: 5/10

Tried to make something happen but looked slow and leggy for long periods. Came close late on.

Leon Dajaku: 4/10

A slow start but looked lively going towards end of first half.

Aiden O’Brien: 5/10

Huffed and puffed with little impact playing up top.

Nathan Broadhead: 7/10

Grafted hard and looked lively but again had some poor players behind him


Substitutes

Lynden Gooch: 5/10

Poor decision making on the ball and continues to not get his head up when making runs.

Alex Pritchard: 4/10

Similar to Gooch, tried for the Hollywood ball across the pitch too many times and looked far too weak as a central player.

Carl Winchester: 5/10

Didn’t look at it when he came on and struggled to make an impact going forward.

Callum Doyle: 5/10

Pretty solid for the half he was on, some improvement in recent performances.

Luke O’Nien: 3/10

Failed to make an impact and looked relatively non existent for large parts of second half.
