Dons ratings vs Birmingham City:
David Martin - 7 - A few good saves in the first half, but little he could do about the goal.
Dean Lewington - 5 - Outpaced and outplayed by the lively Viv Solomon-Otabor, and later Damarai Gray.
Joe Walsh - 7 - Great return to the side after a long time out. Mopped up very well before coming off.
Kyle McFadzean - 6 - Enjoyed a physical battle with Clayton Donaldson, though let him slip away. Fortunately, Donaldson hit the bar.
Jordan Spence - 6 - Looked less eager to go forwards than in previous games.
Diego Poyet - 6 - Solid if unspectacular.
Samir Carruthers - 8 - Heart on his sleeve again, covered every blade for Dons. Great in the tackle too.
Daniel Powell - 6 - Hamstring trouble limited him to 31 minutes.
Dean Bowditch - 4 - Made no impression whatsoever.
Carl Baker - 5 - Came alive when shifted to right back. Patchy before that.
Sam Gallagher - 7 - Played pretty well considering he had nothing to work with. Promising return.
Josh Murphy - 7 - As ever, Dons’ liveliest outlet, but couldn’t do it alone.
Nicky Maynard - 6 - Replaced Gallagher, and had just as tough a time with no service.
Ben Reeves - 5 - Left little impression.
