ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following their 1-0 defeat at home to AFC Wimbledon in League One.

Matej Kovar: 6

Town’s stopper was never tested aside from claiming a few crosses, and he could have done nothing about the goal.

Jordan Stevens: 5

‘Like a fish riding a bike’ was spotted in the comments. Maybe a little harsh, but the winger did about as well as someone like him would have been expected to do in a situation like that. Booked. Subbed.

Mathieu Baudry: 5

Better than recent weeks, but the Frenchman’s decision making in terms of his tackling was quite poor and somehow he escaped the game without being shown a card.

Jonathan Grounds: 7

Another very good display from Grounds – he showed calmness on the ball and won almost everything in the air.

Dion Donohue: 6

Certainly better than Tuesday night, his speed shut down a handful of Wimbledon attacks. Will get better with games, no doubt.

Matt Smith: 7

One of a few that seemed to want to take the game by the scruff of the neck. He never shied away from the ball, though he lacked runners in behind.

Anthony Grant: 6

Another pretty quiet game for the midfielder – Grant snuffed out attacks occasionally, but with Town having so much of the ball, it was going to be down to Smith to kick off moves.

Jonny Smith: 5

The Bristol City winger looks like he is lacking in confidence already. Too many times was he dispossessed or struck a shot off target and was for some reason not hooked by Wellens.

Jack Payne: 6

Another energetic performance, but Payne failed to do much with the ball when given it, and his delivery into the box was often disappointing. Subbed.

Diallang Jaiyesimi: 6

Jaiyesimi continued his trend of blowing hot and cold throughout a game. He produced a couple of memorable moments, but then often held onto the ball for too long or received a pass with his back to goal.

Brett Pitman: 4

The striker won very few headers, he was overpowered by Terrell Thomas, his decision making was poor and he only had one shot on target which came in the form of a long-range free-kick. Subbed.


Akin Odimayo: 6

Considering right-back is not his position, Odimayo got forward with aplomb in his short time on the pitch and almost provided the assist for Jaiyesimi’s late volley.

Tyler Smith: 6

Smith made willing runs but was rarely passed too – perhaps came on too late when Wimbledon had already dropped deep.

Joel Grant: N/A

Subbed on too late to receive a rating.
