Terrible tactics, poor performances all over the pitch. Losing to MK Dons is a disgrace...
Remi Matthews (6/10): Beaten by a top class header and a penalty. Conceding two on your league debut is never ideal obviously, but at least he didn’t make any mistakes.
Lynden Gooch (6/10): A tale of two halves for Gooch. The American was fairly ineffective against a stubborn MK Dons defence but became our greatest threat in the second half.
Jordan Willis (5/10): Pretty comfortable defensively, but very sloppy in possession giving the ball away numerous times. That being said, he can’t really be blamed because he definitely isn’t fit and shouldn’t have played the full match today.
Bailey Wright (5/10): Like Willis, Wright looked too loose on the ball. Couldn’t deal with Cameron Jerome’s quality, despite the Aussie being an experienced international himself.
Luke O’Nien (5/10): A square peg in a round hole. Got forward at times but didn’t look comfortable doing his defensive duties.
Denver Hume (5/10): Couldn’t get forward too often in the first half, but did grow into the game a bit. Could have had a goal to equalise but was denied by the goalkeeper’s boot.
Grant Leadbitter (6/10): Shielded the defence well at times but couldn’t put his stamp on the match from holding midfield.
Josh Scowen (5/10): Didn’t create a whole lot from midfield, looking largely anonymous at times. Scowen’s corner kicks were poor today, especially when you consider we’ve got someone of Leadbitter’s quality on the pitch.
Max Power (5/10): Took his goal well despite the deflection, and looked like the best version of Max Power for a while. Made a very careless mistake with a high foot for the penalty, and never looked the same after that.
Will Grigg (4/10): Started brightly until he missed the ball when through on goal. That chance took the wind from his sails, and barely had another touch of the ball. Missed another massive chance to make it 2-2, where it looked easier to miss than score.
Charlie Wyke (5/10): Industrious as always, but didn’t have the service that he’s become used to. Fed off scraps all game but barely won a header against a physical Richard Keogh.
Subs: Chris Maguire (6/10): Came on and instantly looked bright, before fading away like a lot of his teammates.
Danny Graham (6/10): Showed some impressive movement off the ball, but never looked like scoring. Then again, when has Graham ever looked like scoring in red and white?
Jack Diamond (5/10): Gave the ball away a couple of times, once almost costing us a goal. Still looks rough around the edges but the lad is still young and raw.
