Player ratings vs Port Vale:
David Martin - 6 - Had a decent game, but will be remembered for his role in conceding the goal.
Dean Lewington - 5 - Played a lot of loose passes, but was physically a match for the Vale attack.
Alan Smith - 5 - Didn’t look as comfortable at the back as he did last time out. Either didn’t hear his keeper’s shout, or ignored it to allow Hugill to score.
Jordan Spence - 7 - The only faultless member of the back line really.
George Baldock - 6 - Wasn’t really playing in midfield or defence, so struggled to make much of an impact at either end.
Stephen Gleeson - 4 - Didn’t look like he wanted to be on the field at all.
Dele Alli - 8 - The only player to put in tackles and make things happen going forward. But he couldn’t do it all himself.
Daniel Powell - 6 - Not a bad showing, but had his opportunities limited by some life-less football in midfield.
Matthew Kennedy - 7 - Looked exciting on the ball in the first half, but quickly went off the boil when Dons fell behind.
Sanmi Odelusi - 6 - Was barely involved until a clash with Pope saw him come off.
Izale McLeod - 6 - Put in the work, but there was no end product. Struggled to create anything.
Brendan Galloway - 6 - Came on early, but didn’t make much of an impact.
Giorgio Rasulo - 6 - Came into a midfield void of enthusiasm, and couldn’t do much to create.
Ryan Hall - 5 - His introduction was too late to make a real impact.
