ADVER Sport hand out their verdict after Swindon Town's 1-0 defeat to Crewe Alexandra. 

Luke McCormick – 7

Can’t be blamed for the goal. A few wayward throws knocked his rating down but again proved a solid selection for Brown. Unlikely he’ll lose his spot if he continues like this.

Luke Woolfenden – 5

Continued to fill the right back role but often ventured out of position and struggled to deal with the talented Charlie Kirk. Subbed early in the second half.

Sid Nelson – 6.5

Another gutsy performance from Town’s centre back. Fully committed and gave the ball away few times in what turned out to be a scrappy contest. Booked.

Olly Lancashire – 6

Skipper has re-joined Town’s defence well since returning from injury a few weeks ago. However, while solid, his distribution could improve.

Joe Romanski – 5.5

Not too much blame can be pinned on him for the goal. But throw ins were generally off the mark. Good commitment at times though.

Toumani Diagouraga - 6

Was hailed at the weekend as Swindon fans finally got a glimpse of his abilities when fully fit. The midfielder put in a similar shift, but certainly felt the pace later on.

James Dunne – 5.5

Like the captain, a solid if unspectacular display. Was lucky not to pick up a yellow card in the second half. Subbed.

Steven Alzate - 7

The loan-star is a favourite among Town supporters and its clear to see why. Has plenty of flair on the ball, but needs to start converting it into goals.

Keshi Anderson – 6

Got one of Swindon’s few shots on target. Out wide to the right of Richards, he didn’t cause Crewe too many problems.

Marc Richards - 5

Was in the right areas but lost possession too often when in positions where he could threaten with the ball.

Elijah Adebayo – 5.5

Not at his best last night. Often on the losing end of key battles when possession was needed most. Was allowed few chances and restricted well by the Crewe defence.

Kyle Knoyle (On for Woolfenden 56’) – 6

Added a bit of pace down the right but didn’t get forward all that much to make a real impact.

Jermaine McGlashan (on for Richards 56’) – 5.5

Didn’t quite get a hold of the game as he would have liked and was soon figured out by the hosts.

Ellis Iandolo (on for Dunne 76’) – 7

Hit the post with a left-footed effort and was busy in midfield for his short time on the pitch.
