ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club’s 4-1 victory away at Harrogate Town on Good Friday.

Jojo Wollacott: 7

After the mistake he made last week, Wollacott responded in an encouraging fashion by being proactive in his area and claiming a number of crosses. Add in a couple of saves too, it was a decent afternoon. But he’ll be more upset than most after Armstrong’s injury-time goal after doing well to deny Simon Power in the first place.

Rob Hunt: 7

Another largely error-free performance in which Hunt limited Harrogate’s best player – Jack Diamond – to very little. The calf injury looks a bad one and could be a sickening end to another excellent season for Hunt.

Dion Conroy: 8

Conroy was aggressive, won his headers, and showed his trademark assurance on the ball. Both he and Baudry deserved a clean sheet, I felt.

Mathieu Baudry: 8

I could use a very similar description for Baudry as I used to highlight his defensive partner’s afternoon. Armstrong and Beck gained very little joy as the Swindon defence dominated for the most part.

Joe Tomlinson: 7

It was a quiet afternoon for the left-back. Jack Muldoon barely had a kick, but Tomlinson wasn’t much of a presence up the opposite end as the majority of Swindon’s threat came down the right. Subbed.

Louis Reed: 8

Reed played the pass before the assist in three of Swindon’s four goals. He clipped passes to the wings for fun and stopped countless Harrogate attacks to boot. A strong afternoon.

Ellis Iandolo: 8

Iandolo notched an assist after a powerful run in the second half – a move that summed up his dominant afternoon. He did the heavy lifting so Reed could conduct the orchestra in front of him. Could have had a goal of his own but struck it with the six-iron instead of the five.

Jack Payne: 7

The pass for Davison’s second goal was inch-perfect. Payne was decent without standing out as others played a bigger part in the victory.

Mandela Egbo: 8

Egbo claimed two lovely assists on his first league start for the club, showing exactly why fans had been clamouring for him to start. When he’s match-fit, he could prove to be a real asset for 90 minutes. Subbed.

Josh Davison: 8

Davison missed a golden chance in the first half before taking his two goals like a striker who had been banging them in for fun for months. He continued to make runs in behind and will be disappointed not to have ended the day with the match ball.

Louie Barry: 8

The 18-year-old listened to his head coach and arrived at the back post twice to score a pair of tap-ins. He was positive and made better decisions than last week too – sometimes just dribbling to the by-line and crossing in does the trick. Subbed.


Jonny Williams: 6

The game was over before Williams had any chance to take effect, so it’s difficult to assess how he actually did against a dispirited Harrogate side. He is likely to play a bigger part against Orient on Monday.

Ben Gladwin: 6

See above. There were a couple of positive passes or dribbles forward, and Gladwin almost combined with Iandolo for what would have been a deserved fifth goal late on.

Harry Parsons: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.
