Player ratings Vs Notts County: Harley rides out of Meadow Lane with a top drawer showing

editorial image

David Martin - 7 - Not really given much to do, but for plucking crosses out of the sky. He did that, though, with consummate ease all afternoon.

Dean Lewington - 6 - Struggled against the rapid Campbell-Ryce, but most of the attacks came down the other flank.

Adam Chicksen - 6 - Had a tough afternoon marking both Judge and Stewart as they looked to capitalise down his wing. Looked a threat in midfield for the second half though.

Shaun Williams - 7 - Was asked to keep his head in the sky for most of the game, heading away cross after cross. Even took a venture into the attacking third, but shot just wide.

Antony Kay - 7 - Brilliant in defusing the aerial threat of Iwelumo in the first half, but was caught out by Judge as he tripped him for the penalty.

Darren Potter - 7 - Could have had a hat-trick, but only walked off with one for his afternoon’s effort. A well-taken header to get Dons on the road to victory after six minutes his reward.

Ryan Harley - 8 - Thrown in to see how he’d float, he had an immediate impact, setting up the opener. Played defensively and then in the hole, made smart runs and picked out good passes. Could be a shrewd signing.

Angelo Balanta - 6 - Limped off in his final appearance of his current loan spell. Didn’t really have much of an impact.

Daniel Powell - 7 - Similar to Coventry on Saturday, had a good first half which brought with it a goal, but somewhat anonymous in the second as Dons bunkered down.

Dean Bowditch - 6 - Looked good in the hole behind Lowe, but his time on the pitch was cut short by what looks like a groin strain.

Ryan Lowe - 6 - Didn’t net for once, but showed a good work rate as ever. Tried to make an impact in the second half, but the emphasis was on the defence.


Alan Smith - 6 - Added some muscle to the midfield fight having replaced Bowditch.

Doumbe - 6 - Coped well with the long balls into the box in the second half onslaught.

MacKenzie - Came on in stoppage time to mark Showunmi.
