Player ratings Vs Brighton

editorial image

Martin - 9 - never looked like getting beaten, and made two or three excellent saves.

Lewington - 7 - worked very well with Marsh-Brown on the left flank in another benchmark performance from the skipper.

O’Hanlon - 6 - three silly challenges gave the referee no option but to send him off.

MacKenzie - 8 - another fine display from the big centre half, dealing with everything he had to in the air.

Doumbe - 7 - played in the centre after O’Hanlon’s red card and coped well with the late pressure from Brighton.

Gleeson - 7 - put in some hard graft in the midfield engine room. Probably should have put the game beyond doubt with his chance.

Leven - 7 - a threat from set pieces again, and was spraying passes left and right to open up the game to the flanks.

Chadwick - 7 - an experienced head at the top of the midfield diamond, worked well with the two wingers and threw himself into some tough challenges.

Powell - 8 - always in the right place at the right time. His work rate paid off with a well taken goal.

Marsh-Brown - 8 - frightened the life out of the Brighton full-backs as he dominated the game in the first half.

Vine - 7 - works well as a target man, but just needs that little slice of luck to get on the scoresheet.

Subs: Ibehre - 6 - was used as an outlet as Dons cleared long balls up to him.

Baldock - 6 - played out on the flanks on his return, but looked eager to get forward.

Hughes - 6 - another defensive body in the mix to sustain Brighton’s late charges.

Top Don - Martin - has hardly put a foot wring since his Stevenage blunder, and showed on Saturday why he’s Dons’ number one. A really commanding performance, and his double save from Wood was top class.
