Dons ratings vs Nottingham Forest:

David Martin - 6 - Part of the problem for the second goal, but made a fine stop from Lansbury to prevent going further behind.

Dean Lewington - 5 - A slow start to the game and never really looked to be up to the pace with it.

Kyle McFadzean - 6 - Fairly assured. Deployed as an attacking threat late on with some powerful drives.

Antony Kay - 6 - Didn’t do anything wrong, nothing spectacular.

Jordan Spence - 6 - Had a shout for handball turned away in the first half. Sacrificed in the second as Dons switched tacts.

Darren Potter - 6 - Looked a bit at sea in the opening half as he watched rather than played. More reliable in the second half.

Samir Carruthers - 7 - Another important showing, dragging Dons forwards. Turned for the opener, but was just as much to blame as everyone else involved.

Ben Reeves - 5 - Lost the ball more than he kept it.

Dean Bowditch - 5 - Like Reeves, looked distinctly off it.

Rob Hall - 8 - The only man looking worthy of sparking Dons into life.

Nicky Maynard - 7 - Worked hard as ever but will be disappointed to have missed the penalty.

Subs:

Josh Murphy - 7 - A livewire every time he got on the ball. Won the penalty and scored Dons’ only goal.

Sam Gallagher - 7 - Made a difference as Dons pushed forwards.

Carl Baker - 6 - Deployed at right back, pinging crosses in from the flank.
