Great performance, took our foot off the gas in the second half possibly with an eye on Monday and really it could have been 3 or 4 but in the end 2-0 was probably a fair result though they were pretty dire. First half we played some fantastic stuff, imagining adding Worrall into that and we really could be doing better than we are, but the second half just goes to show. However, there have been so many games which have been very similar to that and ended up 0-0 so it's a great and needed win, especially with Barry keeping up his top form and Dan continuing his fine run at home.

Bentley 7 Not too much to do really, another home clean sheet
White 7 Good performance, dragged out a few times but solid
Thompson 6.5 Barely had a chance, fingers crossed the injury isn't too bad
Barrett 8.5 MOTM Superb, gave his all, fantastic tackles, ran forward and seemed determined to score which was the only thing he didn't do
Coker 7.5 Got forward well and as usual solid at the back
Atkinson 7.5 Kept the ball moving well and glad to see him on the scoresheet, worked hard as always but lacked the final ball
Leonard 8 Best I've seen of him since last season and much more like the Lenny of old
Timlin 7.5 Usual commanding self in the middle and dictated play
McLaughlin 7.5 Not what I expected, more of a cut in and have a go type winger than say Worrall, but looked threatening though could have done with tracking back more
Piggot 7 Tough game and got lumps kicked out of him for 90 minutes, still created a few chances
Corr 7.5 Battled hard, good goal, could have had another, saved himself for Monday towards the end

Subs
Bolger 6.5 Best I've seen of him, though still some moments with bizarre clearances and reactions 10 seconds late
Cassidy 6.5 Worked hard but few chances after he came on through no fault of his own
Weston N/A Not on long enough

Good performance and good result. Couldn't help but feel that this could have been 3/4-0 and given us a big boost going in to the final run-in, but that's just being picky. Keep up performances like that and we should do well, providing we can produce in the big games against far better teams.
