ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club’s 2-1 defeat at home to Leyton Orient on Easter Monday.

Jojo Wollacott: 5

Wollacott made a poor decision for the first goal, although he was helpless for the second. Otherwise, he made one save and barely touched the ball.

Akin Odimayo: 5

His crossing can be so much better than it was. His defending was fine, but in a game where Town needed their full backs to offer something going forward, Odimayo didn’t help as much as he could have. Subbed.

Dion Conroy: 4

The captain was in a vicious cycle of making a mistake which led to groans from the crowd which led to a lack of confidence and then another mistake and so on. He’d been excellent in the past two games, but Monday was a significant drop-off in standard of performance.

Jake O’Brien: 4

O’Brien was all at sea too often and joined Conroy in being at fault for one of the goals. His long passing was very hit and miss too. Booked.

Joe Tomlinson: 6

Tomlinson offered a little bit of threat in the first half going forward but he was clearly suffering with a knee issue and was forced off at half-time. Booked.

Louis Reed: 7

The stand-out player continued to run and pass, even if it didn’t always come off. You can’t fault his effort, and he played the key pass for Davison’s goal. One of few that could walk off with his head held high.

Ellis Iandolo: 5

His passing, both long and short, was not up to scratch in the first half. Once he was switched to left-back, Iandolo’s crossing was rarely on target either.

Jack Payne: 6

Payne played his part in the goal but didn’t do enough to help his team consistently put cutting moves together. He hasn’t hit the heights form-wise since prior to his injury.

Louie Barry: 6

His effort to be in the right place and to get a few shots off was admirable. He almost netted the equaliser until a superb piece of defending denied him. It was no one’s day going forward. Booked.

Josh Davison: 7

Davison’s hold-up play wasn’t as strong as it has been, but he took his goal really well for a man who normally needs a few chances to score.

Mandela Egbo: 5

After a great start which saw him almost set up a goal inside the first minute, Egbo drifted out of the game and didn’t put enough early and accurate crosses in for his teammates to feed off. Subbed.


Harry Parsons: 6

Parsons had no chances to take advantage of after being thrown on, but you can’t criticise his effort and application.

Jonny Williams: 6

Williams was always keen to receive the ball and dribble at the Orient defence. His crossing could have been better, but credit should be given to Richie Wellens’ men too for their stubborn rear-guard action.

Ricky Aguiar: 5

Aguiar failed to have any real impact after coming on for the final 20 minutes plus added time.
