Player ratings Vs Coventry: Goal-scorer Gleeson leads the way in Coventry draw

editorial image

David Martin – 8 – A passenger for the most part after an action-packed opening 15 minutes. Barely touched the ball with his hands in the second half.

Dean Lewington – 6 – Trouble-free night for the full-back. Joined in with the attacks sporadically, but over-hit too many crosses.

Jon Otsemobor – 6 – Struggled with the pace of the Coventry wingers, but looked more dangerous going forward.

Antony Kay – 5 – Guilty of giving away possession on too many occasions in dangerous positions. Almost cost Dons twice, once in either half.

Shaun Williams – 7 – Like the rest of the defence, didn’t have an awful lot to do but looked full of confidence striding forwards.

Darren Potter – 7 – In his element, stroking the ball about and pulling the strings. Probably should have had a dig at goal but opted to pass to Powell in the second half.

Stephen Gleeson – 8 – His deflected effort got Dons level and the midfielder was the best performer on the night. Strong in the tackle, and made powerful runs forward. Part of almost everything.

Luke Chadwick – 7 – Shy of shooting, but caused the Coventry defence all sorts of problems with his movements and deft touches.

Dean Bowditch – 7 – Found acres of space on the flanks, and wasn’t afraid to pull the trigger when he got the chance.

Daniel Powell – 7 – Like Bowditch, had plenty of room to play in, but was guilty of missing a few too many chances in front of goal.

Charlie MacDonald – 6 – Hit the post in the first half, but the game will be remembered for his astonishing miss.


Alan Smith – 6 – Gave away too many fouls up front. Barely made any impact.

Jay O’Shea – 6 – Usually more influential, but simply didn’t see enough of the ball.

Ryan Lowe – Came on in stoppage time, too late to have any affect.
