Superb performance and result! At half time things could easily have gone the way of Rochdale, the defending for their goal was shocking and we looked nervous at the back throughout, but that was still a quality performance.

Bentley 7 Couple of shaky moments but did everything he had to do well
Worrall 8 Proved a point out of position, very well taken goal
Thompson 7 Won his battles, though occasionally struggled against their movement and pace
Barrett 6.5 Struggled with their pace but won the aerial battles
Coker 8.5 Bar the one slip which let Sharp through, he was superb tonight
McLaughlin 7.5 Very good performance and added some much needed width
Atkinson 6.5 Usual hard work but little significant impact
Deegan 7 Hassled them, lucky not to get booked
Weston 6 Didn't really contribute, hard to expect much after so long out but still disappointing, probably not fit to start in normal conditions
Payne 9.5 Magician
Barnett 7.5 Fought and worked hard non stop, won every tackle and header he could
McQueen 6.5 Did what was needed
White 7 Solidified things a bit in the final minutes
Leonard - Great to have him back

Highlight for me though is Phil's post match claim that Payne could sign a new deal by Saturday.
