ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club’s 2-1 victory over Sutton United on Tuesday night.

Jojo Wollacott: 7

The goalkeeper dominated his box reasonably well and claimed his first assist of the season too with some excellent awareness and a wonderfully-executed drop kick. Absolutely no chance with the goal.

Rob Hunt: 7

Hunt was aggressive throughout and rarely allowed his opposite number to turn and run at the defence. His experience was vital late on too when trying to run the clock down.

Dion Conroy: 7

Building on a top performance at the weekend, Conroy was strong again and played a superb pass in the build-up to the winning goal. Long may his good form continue.

Mathieu Baudry: 7

Coming back in for a rare start, I thought Baudry was excellent aside from the naivety of being caught the wrong side of Kizzi for the goal. Despite what Garner says, there was absolutely not a foul there – though it may have been offside on Bennett. Controversial moment aside, there was little to complain about.

Akin Odimayo: 7

Another really encouraging display from the versatile defender. He played with a sense of purpose – something Odimayo can sometimes lack – and rarely made the wrong decision.

Louis Reed: 6

Reed was spraying passes to all parts for the majority of the contest after being given too much time to operate by Sutton. But the big drawback for him was the incident in stoppage time. I felt it was a dive, ultimately. Despite there being slight contact, it wasn’t enough to bring him down, he went down well after it occurred, and it wouldn’t have made him fall in the way he did. A disappointing end to what was otherwise a masterful performance in midfield. Sent off.

Ellis Iandolo: 7

Although his shooting might not have been to the required standard, Iandolo battled away and helped Town dominate the midfield. Booked.

Ricky Aguiar: 5

After a couple of underwhelming performances, Aguiar really made very little impact once again and was rightly subbed as Town went in a different direction, plan-wise. Subbed.

Jonny Williams: 8

Involved in almost everything Town did all night, Williams’ assist for the winning goal was absolutely stunning. The touch to bring it down and the instant pass on a silver platter for McKirdy was much more like the player we all know he can be. My man of the match. Subbed.

Harry McKirdy: 7

McKirdy being back was of clear benefit to Town, who looked more dangerous than their opponents all night. Another one-touch finish for McKirdy too, the striker netted his 16th League Two goal to wrap up all three points.

Josh Davison: 7

Davison’s early goal gave him the confidence to try and be involved more often. Sometimes he over-complicated things, but his energy and desire to help the team was commendable. Booked.


Jack Payne: 6

Payne didn’t really change the game too much. By the time he came on, Sutton were already pumping balls over his head in a bid to snatch a point.

Mandela Egbo: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.
