Player ratings Vs Swindon: David Martin keeps the score respectable in Dons defeat

editorial image

David Martin - 8 - Kept Dons in with a chance, albeit a slim one, with a terrific performance between the sticks.

Jon Otsemobor - 7 - Solid performance. Didn’t really put a foot wrong.

Adam Chicksen - 7 - Struggled to contain man of the match Matt Ritchie in the first half, but got to grips with his threat in the second. Made way for Ibehre.

Gary MacKenzie - 8 - Another strong performance in the centre. Dominated in the air.

Dean Lewington - 5 - Regardless of whether it was a sending off or not, his dismissal made a comeback for Dons almost impossible.

Darren Potter - 6 - Without the ball, his impact on the game was limited. Made some good tackles in the first half though.

Luke Chadwick - 6 - Typically gutsy showing, but like Potter, didn’t have enough of the ball to have much influence.

Jay O’Shea - 6 - Kept on running and was leading the way for Dons’ somewhat light attacking presence. Was taken off after Lewington’s red card.

Daniel Powell - 6 - Couldn’t really have the same influence on the game as we’ve seen against Oldham and Bournemouth, because he just didn’t get the ball.

Dean Bowditch - 7 - Was a good outlet for long balls cleared by the defence, and could’ve threatened more if he had more support.

Ryan Lowe - 7 - Covered a lot of ground for little reward. Withdrawn just after the hour mark.

Subs:

Shaun Williams - 7 - Returned from injury earlier than he probably expected, but stood firm at centre back.

Charlie MacDonald - 6 - Had Dons’ only shot of worth at the end of the game. Held up play well.

Jabo Ibehre - 6 - Thrown on to make a nuisance of himself. Dons looked more dangerous when he arrived alongside MacDonald.
