Player Ratings vs Swindon: Goal-scoring Doumbe does it right at both ends

editorial image

Ian McLoughlin - 6 - Lucky with a bobbling shot and a dubious foul on him in the first half, but was cool under pressure in the second period.

Jon Otsemobor - 7 - Turned provider for Doumbe’s opener, and battled bravely with the rest of the line.

Dean Lewington - 7 - A strong return from injury. Lasted the full 90 minutes and didn’t look in trouble at any point.

Shaun Williams - 6 - At times dallied on the ball and played his side into trouble, but solid on the whole.

Mathias Doumbe - 8 - Looked imperious again at the back. Got up well to head in the opener, but didn’t negate his defensive responsibilities and blocked a powerful effort moments later.

Adam Chicksen - 6 - A tough evening out on the wing as the play went up the middle. Looked confident with Lewingtonin behind him.

Dean Bowditch - 7 - Like Chicksen, didn’t have much to do, but was in the mix at both ends when he needed to be. Always an outlet.

Stephen Gleeson - 6 - Seemed to enjoy his scrap with Massimo Luongo, but hobbled off early in the second half.

Darren Potter - 6 - Not given enough time on the ball to play his usual game and was quickly smothered.

Luke Chadwick - 6 - Looked as though he was still searching for full fitness. Made way for Lowe.

Patrick Bamford - 7 - Could have seen the keeper sent off, could have won a penalty too, but neither happened. Tough night up on his own.


Chris Lines - 7 - Threw himself into the mix as a replacement for Gleeson, doing the messy stuff.

Ryan Lowe - 7 - Made a nuisance of himself when he came on, and scored to put it out of sight.

Alan Smith - A big physical presence, bullying the Swindon defence in the closing stages.
