Steven Benda – 6.5

A sloppy first touch led to City’s first penalty, but he recovered well to deliver a confidence-rich performance. Wasn’t afraid to venture from his line – a trait that blocked Rooney out more than once. Distribution was hit and miss. 

Rob Hunt – 7

Very aware of the threats around him defensively, and moving forward was a threat to City on the right. Another solid game.

Mathieu Baudry – 7.5

Dealt with City’s tall attacking options well, another calming performance in the heart of defence – proving his worth as captain.

Zeki Fryers – 7.5

Set a stiff task to deal with City’s tall forwards, and will therefore be deservedly pleased to have kept a clean sheet from open play and set pieces. Has settled into central role well.

Ellis Iandolo – 7

Worked hard throughout the game and pushed forward often when space was created. Stepped up the challenge following Donohue’s departure.

Anthony Grant – 8

Few moments were he lacked discipline, but was again all-action and committed to Town’s cause before being substituted late in the game.

Jordan Lyden – 7.5

A brilliant tackle in midfield to win back possession prior to Town’s opening goal. Got into great pockets of space and looked the part.

Michael Doughty – 8.5

Great vision in midfield, and his runs were well timed also. Crosses were accurate, looked to make a return to form that Town fans associate him with.

Kaiyne Woolery – 8

Pace was a real strong point this afternoon. Ran excellently to trouble City’s defenders, but had an end product too – unlike at Cheltenham last weekend. Marked improvement.

Jerry Yates – 8.5

Work rate was another major plus, and he adapted well to Wellens’ slight tactical tweak that saw him play as a three up front. Full deserved his goal.

Eoin Doyle – 9

Excluding the two goals, brilliant movement in behind the defenders to generate himself acres of space. Could’ve easily bagged another hat-trick too.


Danny Rose - N/R

Diallang Jaiyesimi - N/R

Paul Caddis - N/R

All substitutes came on with minutes remaining.
