Player Ratings Vs Scunthorpe: Goal scorer Chadwick is top performer

Have your say

David Martin – 7 – Probably did more jumping around keeping himself warm than he did keeping the ball out of his new. Made a good save from Josh Walker though.

Dean Lewington – 7 – Was used in a higher, more attacking role as Scunthorpe offered little down the flanks. His deep cross created the first goal.

Jon Otsemobor – 7 – Linked up nicely with Powell and later Balanta. Like Lewington, used more in attack than defence.

Shaun Williams – 6 – Hard to judge his performance based on such a weak Scunthorpe attacking threat. Didn’t put a foot wrong.

Antony Kay – 6 – Won what little ball Scunthorpe put into the box, but didn’t need to be at his best.

Darren Potter – 7 – A typical Darren Potter performance, running the rule in midfield. Had far too much time to do his thing too.

Stephen Gleeson – 7 – Back in the starting line-up after injury, he was full of running and keen to get forward. Given too much freedom by Scunthorpe.

Daniel Powell – 6 – Hobbled off after half an hour, but looked dangerous before that. Wasted a good one-on-one moments before getting injured.

Luke Chadwick – 8 – Terrified the Scunthorpe defence. Looked a threat throughout, took both goals well but could have completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot.

Angelo Balanta – 7 – A solid first 90 minutes back in Dons colours. Looked to have his full back in his pocket and looked sure to score if he hadn’t been brought down for the penalty.

Alan Smith – 7 – One of his best performances of the season, battling hard, holding up play well. Industrious.


Adam Chicksen – 7 – Made some key runs and pulled the Scunthorpe defence all about as he switched wings with Balanta regularly.

Ryan Lowe – 6 – Didn’t really have much time to impress, but forced Slocombe into a fine stop late on.

Jay O’Shea – A late substitute for Chadwick.
