Dawson - 4
Made standard saves. Had terrible kicking, one poor kick led to the 2nd goal. Made better saves at the end but spilled the ball for their 3rd.
Palmer - 5
Not bad defending at times, some good crosses. Missed two chances he should have scored and was sloppy with the ball.
Lees - 8
A cut above the rest. Calm, wins headers and wins the ball back.
Van Aken - 0
Awful player. Can’t win headers, can’t tackle, gave the ball away so many times. Headed the ball into the centre rather than away for their first. Shocking.
Pudil - 2
I’m a big fan of his but he was woeful. Gave the ball away tons, lost header after header, bullied by their winger. A poor showing.
Reach - 8
A talent that always shines through. Wasted at wing back although he won some important back post challenges early on. Great crosses for both goals. Amazing game.
Pelupessy - 0
What does he do apart from lose games? Can’t tackle or pass, loses the ball all the time and was at fault for the third when he stood waiting for the ball which the Wigan player nicked off him. Seems on his toes and sleeping all the time. Wasn’t in position much as he kept tracking runs wide. Ugh.
Bannan - 5
Off the pace but with moments of quality. Seemed pissed off at his team.
Hutch - 6
Nonexistent in attacking mid but played well at CB.
Nuhiu - 3
Good composure for the goal but was bested by their defence and did little to hold the ball up. Idiotic red.
FF - 7
Good finish and a threat at times but too quiet in the first half.
Joao - 7
A threat all the time. Great pass for the goal.
Fletcher - 7
Looked good and brought a needed spark.
Jos - 4
That line up doesn’t work especially when we don’t press the other team. Slow to make changes but the subs did make a difference.
We were too predictable which is unforgivable after a full pre-season. Poor.
