Toby Sibbick – got stuck in well but a couple of shanked clearances too 6

Callum Brittain – his corner led to the opener, but not directly 6

Alex Mowatt – had a first-half shot saved 6

Romal Palmer – forced a good low save from Angus Gunn 6

Callum Styles – produced a moment of quality out of keeping with almost everything before or after 7

Dominik Frieser – a very good first-half finish only undermined by being offside at the time; that apart his work mainly came from long throw-ins 6

Cauley Woodrow – worked hard and would have made a very takeable chance for Daryl Dike but for Danny Batth's intervention 6
