Player ratings vs Dover Athletic

David Martin - 6 - A shaky start as he returned from injury, but found his feet. Replaced later on.

Lee Hodson - 6 - Was the target for long balls from the Dover defence, but kept close tabs on Tom Murphy.

Dean Lewington - 7 - Got forward well, and dealt with the threat of Ricky Modeste.

Shaun Williams - 7 - A cool head as ever, ensured Dover didn’t have much say in the penalty area.

Jordan Spence - 7 - Trouble-free afternoon.

Alan Smith - 6 - Physical presence in midfield, but didn’t contribute much.

Stephen Gleeson - 7 - Popped up everywhere, contributing in both penalty areas.

Samir Carruthers - 7 - Looked rejuvenated in the second period after a quiet first 45.

Jason Banton - 5 - Difficult afternoon for the winger, looked too keen to impress but ultimately didn’t.

Ben Reeves - 8 - Showed his trickery and ball-holding ability. Making the number 10 role his own.

Patrick Bamford - 6 - Struggled to get involved, but his radar was out when it came to shooting.

Subs:

George Baldock - 7 - Made the difference when he came on. Set up the goal, but could have had two of his own.

Ian McLoughlin - 6 - Came on as Dover turned up the pressure late on. Did well under the circumstances though.

Brendan Galloway - 6 - Made a great break and put one on a plate for Bamford.
