Player Ratings (vs Coventry)
Good game, caught well and one excellent punch to clear a corner. No major saves to make.
Made way at half time but was solid and busy until then.
McNAUGHTON: 8 (Man of the Match)
Class throughout, comfortable on both flanks and was composed and extremely effective. Support in attack and great reading of the game in defence.
Some poor clearances and missed interceptions but organised and calm. Cool under pressure and dependable throughout.
Booked for no apparent reason and lost his man once or twice but made some brilliant clearing headers from corners. Good aggressive tackling, an effective performance.
Switched to left back but was committed and determined all game. Always manages to stretch at the last minute to make good interceptions.
Back on form, some excellent attacking play and never stopped running. Set-up the goal and put several good quality crosses in.
Tidy in midfield and linked play effectively but needed to see more of the ball.
Brought down when poised to head home but not quite so effective as against WBA. Broke up play and always available to recieve the ball.
Won more than his share against 2 big centre-backs but was too often caught offside. Close to scoring 3 times and Chopra partnership developing nicely.
Playing through tight hamstring but looked lively throughout. Was looking frustrated until the goal and caught offside a few times but can be pleased with performance overall and now off the mark.
-Looks short of pace and made little impact.
-took time to settle but terrier-like in defence and tidy in attack. Will improve as he settles in.
- direct but little time to impress.
