Anthony Patterson: 7/10

Quiet game considering we were playing a team who were previously unbeaten and are notoriously physical. Deserved a clean sheet.

Carl Winchester: 8/10

Another great display at right back. Looks so confident when defending and attacking.

Tom Flanagan: 8/10

Continuing his great start to the season, looks a different player than last season. Booked for a late challenge late on.

Callum Doyle: 8/10

Assured by the youngster against a seasoned professional in Sam Vokes.

Dennis Cirkin: 7/10

Up against Sulley Kaikai, in what could be his hardest challenge of the season but coped well after a hectic first 10 minutes by Wycombe.

Dan Neil: 8/10

A more defensive display in midfield for most of the game against a battling Wycombe outfit but showed his class late on when setting up the third.

Luke O’Nien: 8/10

Does so much work in front of the back four, providing protection and slowing the game down when needed.

Elliot Embleton: 9/10

Set up the first goal with a great cross and then scored a fantastic curler from the edge of the box.

Lynden Gooch: 7/10

Not as influential going forward but provides Winchester with so much protection on the right.

Ross Stewart: 9/10

Two goals from the big Scot, one a header and the other a calm left footed finish to make it three.

Aiden McGeady: 6/10

Yet to spark into life this season. Helped out Cirkin regularly but guilty of a bit of overplaying deep in our own half.


Aiden O’Brien: 6/10

Came on with a couple of minutes to go and the score at 3-0, no chance to get involved.

Alex Pritchard: 6/10

Came on with a couple of minutes to go and the score at 3-0, no chance to get involved.

Bailey Wright: 6/10

Came on with a couple of minutes to go and the score at 3-0, no chance to get involved.

Man of the Match: Ross Stewart

Close call between Stewart and Embleton for man of the match but Stewart just edges it with his two goals, Embleton may not be a striker but the two look to be developing a good understanding.
