Dons ratings vs Middlesbrough.

David Martin - 6 - Well beaten for both goals. Handful of good stops.

Dean Lewington - 5 - Unspectacular, though should have been closer to Downing for the goal.

Kyle McFadzean - 6 - Looked solid, but gifted Nugent the ball for the second.

Antony Kay - 7 - Held it together at the back with some great tackles and interceptions.

Jordan Spence - 6 - nothing stand out, but kept Fabbrini quiet for the most part.

Samir Carruthers - 6 - Guilty again of giving the ball away regularly, but tried to get things going.

Diego Poyet - 5 - Anonymous for long periods. Opted to pass when gifted a great chance to shoot.

Josh Murphy - 5 - Little substance when given the ball.

Daniel Powell - 5 - Like Murphy, struggled to make an impact.

Dean Bowditch - 6 - Tried to get things going, made a nuisance of himself to the Boro defence. But had little to work with.

Sam Gallagher - 5 - Offered very little. Withdrawn after 55 minutes.

Subs:

Simon Church - 6 - Hit the post with his first touch. Full of running, but never saw the ball.

Carl Baker - 6 - Offered a spark at least.

Rob Hall - 6 - Came on when the game was a dead rubber.
