Adam Collin 6
Yet to be fully convinced. Seems reluctant to leave his line, but solid handling and distribution.
Matt Tootle 7
Much more effective personally and for the team in central midfield. Made Notts more solid and allowed O’Connor to dictate.
Richard Duffy 6
Again, yet to be convinced. Very solid at times, but likes to break ranks to pressurise which can and has been exploited.
Louis Liang 6
Very Jekyll and Hyde today. First half poor, second half commanding – allowed Notts to keep the pressure on with high pressing in the right areas.
Carl Dickinson 6
Has a massive left foot on him. Dependable, understated and slightly one dimensional. Some good delivery from wide.
Alex Rodman 6
Didn’t get into the game much; seems to be playing between positions. Great dink for the first goal.
Stanley Aborah 6
Got a lot of the ball, used it well (bar the second goal). Struggles defensively in a two, lacks the legs to cover the ground.
Michael O’Connor 6
Gutted about the penalty miss, seemed to make him work even harder to make amends – personified the character the whole team showed today.
Jon Forte 6
Played out of postie wide left, although he seemed to play narrower when Oliver came on. Should’ve had more joy against Ben Davies.
Adam Campbell 5
Frustrating. This lad has bundles of ability but needs a run of games. Played through the middle but withdrawn. Some nice and not so nice touches – should’ve played up with Stead.
Jon Stead 5
Gave you everything Jon Stead gives you. Lacked service and ploughed on gallantly. Struggled in the air.
Adam Collins 6
Gave Notts energy, didn’t do much but score, but goals mean points.
Thierry Audel 6
Strong, got forward well. I’d argue he’s been one of our better players in the last calendar year.
Vadine Oliver 8
Changed the game. A real nuisance factor. Won plenty in the air, looked good popping the ball off. Deserved a goal at the end. Impressive.
