Martin - 7 - under the cosh in the second half after being largely unused in the first 45 minutes. Made a terrific save late in the game.

Lewington - 7 - should have scored with a late volley, but defended well moving into the centre of defence.

Doumbe - 7 - was lucky to remain on the pitch in the first half, but calmed down in the second to restrict Wednesday’s surges forward.

MacKenzie - 5 - put his side under pressure with his first half sending off for two silly infringements.

Woodards - 7 - coped well at centre back, but picked up a knock early in the second and had to be replaced.

Gleeson - 7 - produced a very dogged display, forced to play at right back. Could have scored with a late break but his legs just gave out.

Leven - 7 - cynical challenge on Mellor saw him dismissed, which probably saved a point for Dons. Was a real threat with his set-pieces and scored with a well-struck penalty.

Chadwick - 7 - produced two great passes that freed up Marsh-Brown to create both goals and blocked a couple of goal-bound efforts.

Marsh-Brown - 8 - had an impressive debut for Dons. Showed pace and passion, setting up both goals for his side. Looks a quality recruit.

Powell - 7 - continues to impress in the first team, adding another goal to his tally. Showed great support for Ibehre up top.

Ibehre - 7 - another lonely display up front on his own, but his hold up play was still excellent, bringing the midfield into the game. He was then used as a defender late in the game.

Subs: Chicksen - 7 - coped well with the Wednesday onslaught, but still needs the confidence to get forward and help in the attack.

Guy - 6 - was mainly used as an outlet, chasing long clearances and generally time wasting as the game wore on.

Stirling - 6 - was making his comeback after months on the sidelines, and made some important clearances.

Top Don - Marsh-Brown: was a real threat every time he touched the ball. Won the penalty and picked out Powell as Dons threatened to run riot in the first half. He earned high praise from his manager, but ran out of steam in the second half. Looks likely to be the difference between a draw or a win in games at this key part of the season.
