ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club’s 2-1 victory over Bradford City at the Utilita Stadium on Saturday.

Jojo Wollacott: 8

Wollacott made three really good and important saves early on which allowed Swindon to stay alive in the game. His impact should not be understated.

Akin Odimayo: 8

Considering he only had five minutes warning, Odimayo was outstanding against Bradford. He was strong, made good decisions, and drove forward a few times too. It was a shame to see him forced off through injury with 20 minutes to play. Subbed.

Jake O’Brien: 7

O’Brien was aerially dominant once again and made a couple of key interceptions. I thought his positioning was pretty good too.

Brandon Cooper: 7

The Swansea loanee controlled his aggression much better but still managed to give as good as he got with Andy Cook and Caolan Lavery. A vital interception stopped Cook scoring in the first half.

Rob Hunt: 8

Town’s captain for the majority of the game was excellent, he seems to be thriving under the responsibility. His experience in slowing the game down when necessary came in handy, and he battled away brilliantly.

Louis Reed: 7

Reed’s anticipation and ability to break up play were his key strengths against Bradford. He was carded for a naughty tackle to stop a counter-attack, and his corners sometimes left a bit to be desired. But overall, he was back to his usual standards. Booked.

Ellis Iandolo: 8

Iandolo played the pass before Williams’ assist and won the penalty right at the death. In between that, his recovery play was top-notch and he often featured when Town went forward. Booked.

Ricky Aguiar: 6

His decision-making and lack of physical strength let him down really – something that’s quite understandable for a young player. I’m glad Garner left him on until the end, he’ll only improve through experience.

Jonny Williams: 7

Williams was efficient with his play and claimed the assist for McKirdy’s goal. He was aggressive and put his body on the line for the cause. It’s that kind of unselfish play which helps endear him to the fans. Subbed.

Josh Davison: 7

Although he missed a golden opportunity in the first half, Davison’s unselfish play in terms of taking hits from centre-backs and third-man runs meant it was a solid afternoon’s work for the Charlton loanee. He was mightily unlucky with a header at the end too.

Harry McKirdy: 8

Town’s top scorer notched in classy style early on and was desperate to drag his team over the line at the end. The only downside was a needless handball which puts him out for two games. Booked.


Mathieu Baudry: 7

The returning Frenchman showed excellent leadership skills, he won his aerial duels, and he was calm on the ball. It was a high-class late cameo from the centre-back.

Jack Payne: 8

Despite being out for nine weeks, Payne played his final 15 minutes like he’d never been away. And the composure to score a 96th-minute penalty against your old club was seriously impressive.
