43. GEORGE FOWLER 7

Performed well alongside fellow senior debutant Webber.

22. TRISTAN NYDAM 8

Looked composed in midfield this season, but looked equally adept at left-back. Hardly put a foot wrong before being substituted.

17. DANNY ROWE 6

Struggled to impose himself too much as an attacking threat, but defended well.

37. ADAM McDONNELL 7

Looked calm and assured in midfield, against much more experienced campaigners, such as James McArthur and Jason Puncheon

21. FLYNN DOWNES 8

Growing in confidence and stature with every game. Bossed the midfield for spells in the first half.

11. BERSANT CELINA 6

Better first half after quiet opening period. Scored Town’s consolation.

42. SHANE McLOUGHLIN 6

Busy and put himself about, playing just behind lone striker Ben Folami

34. BEN FOLAMI 6

Did well on his professional debut. One or two neat touches and wasn’t afraid to be physical

35. BEN MORRIS 6

Did well to set up Celina for the consolation

36. MONTY PATTERSON 6

Flick header almost sent game into extra-time.

40. CHRIS SMITH 6

Tested against £15m man Andros Townsend and did OK.
