Player ratings Vs Hartlepool

editorial image

Martin - 7 - next to nothing to do in terms of saves, but he kicked well and came out strongly for crosses.

Lewington - 7 - another strong captain’s performance as per normal. Strong in the tackle and battled well.

O’Hanlon - 7 - clearly still not fully fit, but won everything in the air.

MacKenzie - 8 - showed what he’s really capable of. Strong, powerful and dominant at the back throughout.

Doumbe - 7 - corrected the errors from Tuesday, and supported Powell well up the flank when he could.

Gleeson - 6 - tried to get the ball down, but pitch made it hard to play passing football.

Leven - 6 - his creativity was hampered by the conditions, but threw himself into some good challenges.

Chadwick - 8 - had his best performance of the season. Made several key tackles and was good in both attack and defence.

Marsh-Brown - 6 - quiet game for the youngster. Had limited opportunities to play his type of football and take on players.

Powell - 7 - like Marsh-Brown, struggled to make an impact on the game, but took his goal really well. Looked exhausted by the end.

Vine - 7 - had no joy up front on his own, but chased down plenty of long balls in an overall good show.

Subs: Hughes - 7 - came on to shore up the midfield and add another body to the defence.

Guy - 6 - had as much luck as the other wingers, but added some pace to the late breakaways.

Stirling - 6 - made a nuisance of himself up front late on.

Top Don - MacKenzie - this was comfortably his best performance in a Dons shirt. He was strong, controlled, dominant in the air. He also survived a penalty appeal and looks like forming a great partnership at the centre of defence with O’Hanlon.
