Dean Henderson. Given the bird by the home fans, predictably. A clean sheet was a nice riposte. 7.
Martin Cranie. Kept his head and produced a sound performance. A real Mr Reliable. 7.
John Egan. Made a terrific goal-saving block early on and held firm amid late pressure.7
Jack O'Connell. Had to work overtime for spells in the first half. Made a terrific late block. 7.
George Baldock. A let-off when his late tackle yielded yellow and not red. 7
Chris Basham. Sloppy first half, crowned by his miss just before the interval. But produced the game-breaking moment on the restart. 7.
Ollie Norwood. Did not dictate as he can in the first half. Better after the break. 6
John Fleck. Him and Norwood were second best to Hernandez and co in the first period. But kept going and was a hive of industry. 7
Enda Stevens. Grew into the game after a testing opening and had a rewarding afternoon. 7
David McGoldrick: His defence-splitting pass to Basham just before the break was a wonderful one and he showede his experience. 7
Billy Sharp. Quiet in front of goal, but produced a crafty contribution for the winner. 7
Substitutes: Kieran Dowell (McGoldrick 88), John Lundstram (Basham 90).
