Steven Benda – 6.5

A couple of excellent saves, and distribution was good. Let down by a static defence in the second half.

Rob Hunt – 5

Good cross to set up Town’s only goal, but a poor touch to gift Crewe their third. Kirk controlled play in this area.

Mathieu Baudry – 4.5

Gifted possession away cheaply more than once. Static for hosts’ second. Will want to make up for it against Stevenage.

Gabriel Zakuani – 6

Certainly should’ve done better before Crewe’s second goal. But delivered a no nonsense performance. Blocked several key shots and crosses.

Dion Donohue – 4.5

Left trailing his man before Crewe’s opener. Fortunate not to be booked after a series of challenges. Was dominated in first half.

Anthony Grant – 5.5

Got stuck in as usual. But Crewe dictated play in midfield and never allowed the Shrewsbury man a real sight.

Lloyd Isgrove – 5

Barely noticed throughout the game. Lack of forward movement, not much creativity when Town rarely ran forward.

Jordan Lyden – 5

Passing was backwards, easily dispossessed at times. Did however perform better prior to half time when adopting No.10 role.

Keshi Anderson – 4

Sloppy giveaway of possession, and easy to see why he was substituted so early. Must pick up his work rate levels sooner than later.

Jerry Yates – 5

Lots of running, very little time on the ball. Struggled to win 50-50s and will want to put this one behind.

Eoin Doyle – 6.5

An excellent finish to put Town ahead. Excluding that, didn’t see the ball too much. Crewe’s defence held firm.


Rose – 6

Woolery – 5.5

Jaiyesimi – 5.5
