Man Of The Match: Joel Ward – Gave a Herculean performance in the centre of midfield and didn’t deserve to finish on the losing side.

We Want Him: Albert Adomah – A real handful on the flank with his raw pace and also showed plenty of intelligence when in possession.

He’s All Yours: David Clarkson – Very occasionally showed some nice touches but too power puff and eager to take a tumble.

Magic Moment: Substitute Kanu’s quality in the build up to inspire Dave Kitson’s late consolation.

Their Manager: Keith Millen – Utilised his side’s pace and counter-attacking in devastating fashion.
