Dons ratings vs Gillingham: Dele Alli runs the show

editorial image

Player ratings against Gillingham:

David Martin - 6 - Left isolated for the opener, but took out McDonald for the penalty. Otherwise, a spectator.

Lee Hodson - 7 - Provided a strong attacking threat in the first half, putting in some dangerous balls.

Dean Lewington - 6 - Looked in trouble against McGlashan in the first half, but Gills offered no threat in the second period.

Antony Kay - 6 - Didn’t look comfortable against McDonald.

Kyle McFadzean - 6 - Like Kay, was pulled from pillar to post by McDonald. Should’ve been stronger for the first goal, but capped his debut with a great headed goal.

Darren Potter - 6 - Seemed to take a back seat to Alli in midfield orchestration.

Dele Alli - 8 - Had a hand in everything Dons did all afternoon, short of scoring a goal, which he arguably should have done early in the second half.

Danny Green - 7 - After some dodgy balls into the mixer, Green found his crossing boots in the second period, setting up two.

Dean Bowditch - 7 - Great to see him starting and getting good time on the pitch. Put in some strong runs and dangerous balls.

Ben Reeves - 7 - Guilty of trying to do too much at times, but was a key influence in the second half.

Will Grigg - 7 - Had to drop deep to become part of the game, but only needed one chance to make his impact.

Subs:

Benik Afobe - 6 - Came on with the game effectively wrapped up. A good run out for him though.

Daniel Powell - 6 - Made a few challenging runs.

Tom Hitchcock - 6 - Looked eager to get his shots in.
