Adver Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players after their 2-1 win over Walsall at the County Ground in League Two.

Steven Benda: 6

Made an awful error for the goal – admittedly his first of his spell in between the posts – but made up for it with aplomb with a superb fingertip save right at the death.

Rob Hunt: 7

Another really sound game for the only ever-present player in Town’s squad. Made some good tackles and bombed on down the right until the end.

Mathieu Baudry: 7

Hardly put a foot wrong all game and dealt with the threat of Adebayo and Lavery well. The Frenchman is filling the shoes of Conroy with aplomb.

Zeki Fryers: 6.5

His athleticism got him out of a couple of hairy moments, but overall Fryers produced another really mature performance in the heart of defence.

Dion Donohue: 7

Despite coming into the team with no pre-season, Donohue looked really strong and confident in his own game once again and matched Hunt in terms of attacking presence.

Keshi Anderson: 6

Looked like he was moving really well before the injury and will miss another few weeks. Had a chance to shoot early on but perhaps understandably opted to play Doyle in instead. Subbed.

Anthony Grant: 7.5

You can clearly see he is a cut above in terms of quality and controlled the game for Wellens’ men. If a deal can be done, it could prove vital for Town’s promotion chances.

Michael Doughty: 5

Too many over-hit crosses and set pieces. Passing was iffy, but he continued to put himself about and disrupt when possible. He will have better games.

Diallang Jaiyesimi: 7

He always tried to make something happen, but the inconsistency of youth often showed at times. DJ is always a handful though and got his reward for being positive with the winning goal. Subbed.

Jerry Yates: 7.5

After being moved out wide following Anderson’s injury, he continued to run and put himself about for the team in awful conditions. His contribution to the team should not be understated.

Eoin Doyle: 7.5

Occupied the Walsall defence really well throughout and showed his class and maturity to get Town off to the best possible start. His seventh goal in five games.


Jordan Lyden: 6.5

Was combative as ever in the middle and showed a decent touch in really tricky conditions after coming on for the injured Anderson. Backed Grant up well.

Kaiyne Woolery: 6.5

Proved to be a particularly handy outlet down the right and played with an aggression that is seldom seen. If he plays like that more, he could be a vital part of the squad going forward.
