Man of the Match: Greg Halford – Had to step up his game to help cope without Rocha and did that magnificently with a superb display.

We Want Him: Iain Hume – Never stopped buzzing and a real handful for the Blues defence from start to finish with his energy, pace and movement.

He’s All Yours: Adam Barton – Completely anonymous as the game passed the youngster by alarmingly in the centre of midfield.

Magic Moment: Greg Halford’s leveller which gave the frustrated crowd such a massive lift.

Their Manager: Phil Brown – Fully deserved point in a display which made a mockery of their league placing.
