PLAYER RATINGS V SWINDON



A hard fought, if boring, 1-0 win. Charlie Wyke ended his goal drought (!) and the crossbar saved the lads right at the death. Here’s how the lads rated out of ten...


Lee Burge (7/10): Kept a clean sheet, wasn’t busy for the majority of the match. Made one smart save to get down quickly for a free kick. Was quick off his line to smother a big chance.

Max Power (7/10): Did a good job of stepping into midfield when we were in possession and looking to squeeze Swindon. Didn’t have to focus much on his defensive skills due to their lack of any attacking threat.

Dion Sanderson (7/10): Solid in defence, looking back to his best. Composed as ever in a makeshift defence again.

Luke O’Nien (7/10): Did well to keep the ball moving quickly as we looked to create openings. Much better positionally than against Crewe.

Callum McFadzean (5/10): Kept giving the ball away cheaply, although he did get into some good attacking positions and put a few crosses in. Improved in the second half and became tidier with his passing.


Carl Winchester (7/10): Added a bit of quality on the ball, helping us retain possession.

Josh Scowen (7/10): Worked his socks off, not giving The Robins a minute on the ball.


Lynden Gooch (7/10): Made a few impressive deliveries from the right before moving to a more central role. One of the few bright attackers in a dull first half.

Aiden McGeady (6/10): Couldn’t get into the game much and spent a lot of time in the second half defending in his own half. In recent games has looked a little jaded.

Jordan Jones (6/10): Like McGeady, we didn’t see the best of Jones tonight.

Charlie Wyke (6/10): Hold up play wasn’t great, looked isolated at times. Made up for it with a fantastic header to win us the game.


Subs:

Chris Maguire (7/10): Looked really motivated again, putting in a great ball for Wyke’s header. Should have made it two nil though when through on goal late on.

Aiden O’Brien (6/10): Dropped deep and worked hard as we fought to keep the lead.

Jack Diamond (N/A): An outlet to relieve the late pressure.

Dan Neil (N/A): Only played two minutes of added time.
