Adver Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town player ratings following the club’s 3-1 defeat to Crawley Town on Saturday.

Jojo Wollacott: 7

Swindon’s stopper made a couple of excellent saves but was largely left helpless for all three goals. Some unhelpful back-passes were calmly dealt with too.

Rob Hunt: 6

Hunt’s afternoon was a relatively quiet one. He did nothing wrong for any of the goals, and he wasn’t often involved at the other end either.

Jake O’Brien: 5

His decision-making was off the mark on a couple of noticeable occasions, such as when Nadesan broke one-on-one at him and he allowed the striker to turn back into the box for a shot. Not a great game from the Palace man overall.

Dion Conroy: 5

Conroy seemed to be playing with a lack of energy and intensity at times – though he was not the only one guilty of that, it must be said. I felt there was a drop off in standard from the past two performances.

Akin Odimayo: 5

Odimayo lacked a degree of composure on the ball against Crawley. He was also over-zealous when going into tackles, hence the yellow card for his fourth or fifth offence. Booked. Subbed.

Ryan East: 5

He seemed to regularly hide away from the ball and only made simple passes when he was on it. East lost his man for the first goal too – a really rusty display. Subbed.

Ellis Iandolo: 6

Iandolo put himself into some handy positions going forward. The only slight disappointment was that I thought he wasn’t on his toes as much as he could have been when breaking up play. Perhaps he’ll benefit from the weekend off.

Jonny Williams: 7

He should have scored really early on but made up for it with a classy assist later on. Williams was booked for diving in anticipation of a kick, much like Reed the other night, but he was a menace to Crawley and one of Town’s best attackers. Booked. Subbed.

Jack Payne: 6

Payne ran his socks off for the team, as they say. I’d be surprised if his running stats weren’t at the required level, like Garner mentioned in his post-match interview. But he wasn’t on the end of attacking moves as much as Williams or McKirdy.

Harry McKirdy: 6

Understandably, Swindon’s top scorer was keen to have as many shots as possible. But I think it was to the detriment of the team on a couple of occasions. McKirdy didn’t have his shooting boots on – the gilt-edged chance near the end was the best example of a moment he’d normally take.

Josh Davison: 7

Davison was always keen to receive the ball into him and battled well with Francomb and Francillette. He took his chance really well too just after the break.
