Brad Collins - little he could do about the goals 6

Toby Sibbick - played his part in the back three 6

Michail Helik - defended pretty well 6

Liam Kitching - an excellent slide tackle on Lys Mousset ummed up a very good defensive display from the centre-back and it was surprising when he came off 7

Callum Brittain - did not pose the threat Barnsley need from him 6

Jasper Moon - did well in an unfamiliar position and hit the post 7

Claudio Gomes - struggled to impose himself 5

Callum Styles - created a few chances but the Reds need more from him 6

Victor Adeboyejo - looked Barnsley's most likely, so it was a surprise when he was substituted, and did not go down well with the home fans 7

Cauley Woodrow - did not have to shoulder the goalscoring burden for once 6

Dominik Frieser - twice Woodrow tried to play him through but passer and runner were on a different wavelength 5.


Aaron Leya Iseka (for Frieser, 54) - wriggled free and produced a great finish 7

Devante Cole (for Adeboyejo, 59) - wonderful goal to silence his terrace critics after a woeful miss 7

Will Hondermarck (for Kitching, 74) - helped in the push for a point 5

Not used: Walton, Oduor, Vita, Oulare.
