Haven’t see. @Red Rain on here in a while, hope he’s ok. Here’s my player ratings. Collins - 7 - Did what was necessary when it was necessary. Nice flashback with the shithousery to waste a few seconds here and there. McCarthy - 7 - Really like him. Pretty composed, wins the ball in the air and has a decent distribution, whether it’s passing or throw ins. Andersen - 6 - Never looked in danger but still managed to make me nervous when we were passing the ball around at the back. Better long range distribution. Unlucky his ‘goal’ was offside cos it was a decent finish following some quick thinking. Kitching - 6 - Couldn’t find a player for much of the game with his passing, but that mazy run just before full time was great. Cadden - 5 - Hugged the touch line too much and always seemed to pick the wrong option when crossing. Hope he’s just still adjusting to this level. Williams - 6 - combined nicely with Thomas and Benson down the right flank and got back and did his defensive duties when required too. Styles - 6 - was barely in it until moved to wing back but then perked up a bit. Some nice interplay with Kitching, Thomas and Connell. Benson - 7 - put a decent shift in today. Got stuck in and played some lovely balls from a bit deeper in midfield almost in a quarterback role. Got stuck in and looks like he’s going to be important for us this season. Thomas - 9 - worked his socks off in midfield, pressing, tracking back, taking his man on or at least committing them to a challenge every time he had the ball. I’m looking forward to seeing his goal again, it looked brilliant from my seat. Picked up a loose pass from May, drove forward, got it out from under his feet and smashed it with a slight curl into the top corner. Norwood - 6 - looks like a handful in spells, but is obviously not 100% fit. You could see him managing his own game. Do a sprint, then ask Luke Thomas to do the pressing for the next 5 minutes while he got his breath back. Decent header that was either just wide or tipped wide. Aitchison - 6 - ferreted about a la Chris Dagnall. Didn’t get too many opportunities, but there was one where he was through and he seemed to snatch at it. Subs Connell - 7 - came on and shored up the midfield. Won more headers in midfield than I’ve seen us win recently and linked up nicely with Benson, Styles and Thomas. Cole - 6 - definitely looked like he’s had a rocket from Duff. Or at least had his role explained to him. A couple of nice flick ons and some good strength shown. The ref blew for non fouls a couple of times he did well which I thought was harsh. Marsh - 6 - Acrobatic effort at the far post which he failed to make contact with, but he did the Aitchison role well when he can on. Also wasn’t found wanting defensively when covering one of Williams’ attacking forays. Hondermarck - 6 - added further solidity to our midfield when he replaced Thomas. Didn’t do anything spectacular, but looked tidy and worked hard. The Ref - thought he was generally ok. Set the tone early with the yellow cards for yellow card tackles. Couple of suspect decisions from the assistants, but we have had much worse! Overall, 7/10 performance. Bumped from a 6 as we got the 3 points.
