Given – 7 – not much to do at all really but made one smart stop to keep the game at 0-0.
Beye – 6 – hardly a barnstorming game for last week`s match winner but steady nonetheless.
Rozenhal – 6 – thought Healy and Kamara would trouble him more but he did ok.
Cacapa – 7 – infinitely improved from the Pompey game where he looked the Brazilian Bramble.
N`Zogbia – 6 – wasted at left back. Can`t wait to buy a new one so Prince Charles can get forward.
Geremi – 5 – looks as slow as Micky Quinn. Might be the one positive about the ACN.
Barton – 7 – more like it. All action, showed bottle for the penalty. More of the same please Joey.
Butt – 7 – quiet destroyer style role suited the Ginger Warrior.
Milner – 6 – always busy but could have done with a bit more quality on the final ball.
Martins – 5 – subdued but there was little more you could expect when given such lousy service.
Smith – 6 – battled well and got chopped down for the penalty.
