Good result in the end.
Roos - 7 good handling, didnt do much wrong.
Lowe - 8 solid at the back, including some great last ditch tackles. Going forward looks good, showed good skills on several occasions to beat his man.
Keogh - 8 another strong display from the captain. Won his battles.
Clarke - 6 lost his man for the first goal, caught out for the ball over the top for the second, lost his man at several other times, a difficult afternoon for him.
Malone - 6 ok defensively, offered little going forward.
Huddlestone - 5, gave the ball away frequently, lacked the usual composure. Didnt get a grip of midfield.
Evans- 6 battled well, some nice passes, needs to start to take more control in the midfield if this is his position.
Dowell - 5, some nice touches, but at times very sloppy with retaining possession. Play often broke down when it got to him.
Lawrence - 3, really disappointing and not involved. Very careless in possession.
Josefzoon - 5, lack of end product, but busy, involved and showing for the ball.
Waghorn - 7, good goals and involved in our better moments. Should have scored the winner.
Bielik -6 solid when he came on, could he have done better for the second goal? Needs to be starting in midfield. Nice passing and more mobile than huddlestone.
Marriott - 7 looked dangerous when he came on, had a real positive impact. Linked well with Waghorn.
Knight - 6, difficult game to come on in, did well, but not much time to influence.
We cant play away from home with both Lawrence and Zoon, front three of Waghorn, Marriott and another for our next game. Paterson maybe...
Midfield needs looking at as the balance is wrong, no control today. I think Cocu will make changes for the next game.
