Goalkeeper and Defence

GK – Djordje Petrovic – 5/10 – made two great saves but should have saved Dara O’Shea’s second equaliser.

RB – Malo Gusto – 6/10 – some good movement in possession, making his customary forays forward, but he wasn’t always strong defensively.

CB – Axel Disasi – 6/10 – had a goal disallowed for handball and won a few headers.

CB – Benoit Badiashile – 5/10 – couldn’t be blamed for being a bit rusty after injury. He got under the flight of the ball before Lyle Foster had a header saved by Petrovic.

LB – Marc Cucurella – 5/10 – failed to make an impact going forward, and made very few interventions defensively. Pretty anonymous.
