Dillon Phillips 6
Can’t really be blamed for the goal. Made some smart saves when called upon.
Perry Ng 7 – STAR MAN
Looked a genuine threat down the right-hand side. Refused to give up on the ball, and put in some decent crosses. Deserved more.
Sean Morrison (c) 6
A welcome aerial presence, and made some decent interventions on a difficult night, but was still given a torrid time by Gyokeres and Waghorn.
Aden Flint 6
Turned inside out by Gyokeres for most of the evening, but otherwise prevented a bad night getting worse with a couple of strong tackles.
Curtis Nelson 6
Put his body on the line at times with some solid blocks, but perhaps should have done more to prevent Gyokeres racing away for the opener.
Marlon Pack 5
Put his foot in well enough, but wasn’t able to really offer the intensity needed in midfield.
Joel Bagan 6
Commendably showed the confidence to get forward, but struggled to really get going. Defensively did reasonably well, although questions will be asked about his culpability for the goal.
Will Vaulks 5
Settled things down in the middle well enough, but couldn’t quite get things moving.
Rubin Colwill 4
Lost the ball in the build-up to the goal. Plenty of effort and endeavour, but not a performance he’ll remember too fondly. Subbed at half-time
Mark Harris 4
Movement was largely pretty good, but just could not get into the game at all. Only Phillips had fewer touches in a frustrating first half. Subbed.
Kieffer Moore 5
Plenty of effort from the big man. But, on the whole, a really quiet performance. The first time he’s been taken out of the game for a while.
James Collins (45 on for Harris) Missed the best chance of the game. Looks low on confidence at the moment, but can’t fault his effort – 5
Sam Bowen (45 on for Colwill) – Mick may as well have left Colwill on – 5
Kieron Evans (on for Vaulks 81) – Came on too late to make a difference – 5
