Very little to do, some accurate kicking but hesitated a couple of times when he should have collected.
Defensively sound for much of game, out of position for goal but noticably nervous in attack. Lost possession several times and looked out of sorts.
A quiet game, yet tidy. Capaldi had relatively little to to, tried to get forward but with little success.
Loovens 7 M.O.M.
A big game for the Dutchman, got head, foot or something on everything and kept Adebola quiet. So strong and read the game really well.
A good game for Johnson, covering well and making timely interceptions. McKenzie rarely got away and helped keep Adebola quiet.
A quiet game from the Welshman, he failed to get into the match and got little possession. Full of running, but made little impression this time.
Outstanding first half, winning everything in the air, full of clever touches and direct running. Little possession after the break but still looked dangerous.
Really got stuck in, which is good to see – however failed to get anything going after half time. Needs to get forward more, but a tireless performance from the skipper.
Went AWOL for long periods as the game passed him by. Overshadowed in the middle and did little to impress himself on the game. A disappointing performance.
Looked sharp until the finish, he could have had a hat-trick but encouraging positions and openings and remained a handful.
Tried hard, but is not going to win ball in the air and found it hard to disrupt a powerful defense. Some neat touches but is not a natural striker and will be less effective at home in that role.
Whittingham: Little chance to shine, but made a couple of chances before letting himself down with the final ball in.
Feeney: Eventful few minutes, missed a sitter and won a penalty. Lots of determination but many doubts remain.
Purse: Hit post, his own crossbar and then bar again from the penalty. It was a moment for the captain to step up, but he got is slightly wrong and will be gutted.
