Lee Burge: 6/10
Put the team under pressure shortly after we went 2-0 up with a poor ball to Dan Neil but made some good saves and slowed the play down when we were under pressure in the last 20 minutes.
Carl Winchester: 7/10
Solid at right back, looks a good option there and then helped the team see the game out in his more natural midfield position.
Tom Flanagan: 6/10
Did OK and looks to have an understanding with Doyle but booked for a clumsy foul when struggling to get back into position.
Callum Doyle: 7/10
Maybe not as assured on the ball as he has been but always keen to win the ball back and looks the more senior centre-back.
Dennis Cirkin: 7/10
Full senior debut for the left-back, looked comfortable on the ball and always an option overlapping. Good debut and understandably tired late on.
Corry Evans: 7/10
Does his job quietly but really missed him when he went off injured, his departure saw Scott Twine cause problems just in front of the Sunderland defence.
Dan Neil: 8/10
Worked his socks off in midfield and then filling in at left-back towards the end of the game, a clever through ball for Embleton’s goal and then a great ball over the top for Stewart which resulted in a penalty.
Aiden McGeady: 7/10
Quieter game for McGeady but the first goal of the game came from his cross.
Elliot Embleton: 8/10
Extremely calm finish for Sunderland’s second and almost set up another for Stewart with a ball over the top.
Lynden Gooch: 6/10
Not as good as last week and missed a penalty which would have made the last 10 minutes a lot more comfortable, ended up at right back again and helped the team see out the game.
Ross Stewart: 9/10
Brilliant performance from the big man. Led the line superbly, scored the opener, won a penalty and only gripe is that he could have had one or two more.
Came on when Sunderland were being forced back but still had a chance to finish the game but hit his shot into the side netting.
Had to play in midfield when he came on due to injuries, worked hard and played a good through ball to Stewart that almost made it three.
Came on as Sunderland were looking to see the game out and made a couple of important clearances.
Man of the Match: Ross Stewart
Great performance up top from Stewart, never stops running, must be a nightmare to play against and could easily have had a hat-trick.
