Player ratings Vs Cambridge City: Gleeson calls the shots in goalless draw

editorial image

David Martin – 6 – Unused for long periods, but did well to get down to Allen’s second half strike.

Dean Lewington – 6 – Didn’t need to do much defensively with City’s threat very limited. Got in some good positions in attack but didn’t look too keen on shooting with his right foot.

Jon Otsemobor – 6 – Was never in trouble at the back, and managed to put across some dangerous looking balls into the middle.

Shaun Williams – 7 – Dealt with the big centre forwards Bryant and Hammond with his usual confident swagger.

Antony Kay – 7 – Always looked in control. Had a great chance to put Dons into the lead in the first half, but couldn’t do much more with his header.

Stephen Gleeson – 8 – Made everything tick in the Dons midfield. Wasted the best chance of the game by hitting the post from a yard out, but was still the standout performer.

Darren Potter – 7 – Saw more of the ball even by his standards and had a lot of shots blocked as he hovered on the edge of the box.

Adam Chicksen – 7 – Enjoyed success on both flanks, put in some dangerous crosses into the danger zone and ever had a decent chance to score his first for the club.

Jay O’Shea – 5 – Looked like he was trying too hard against the minnows. Radar was out as his shots sailed high and wide. Replaced by Dele Alli.

Luke Chadwick – 6 – Had something of a quiet game against his hometown club. Hit the post in the second half, but hobbled down the tunnel before the end.

Ryan Lowe – 7 – Did everything he could with the balls he was fed. Looked sharp and keen to shoot, but was only denied the winner by a world class save.

Subs:

Delie Alli – 7 – Looked every bit a first team regular, despite his age and inexperience.

Alan Smith – A late run out and could’ve scored with his first touch, a header at the near post, but couldn’t hit the mark.
