ADVER Sport assesses the performances of the Swindon Town players following the Robins’ 2-2 draw with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.

Murphy Mahoney: 7

Town’s stopper was unsighted for the first goal and was left helpless for Crewe’s second. Aside from that, he made a superb save from Chris Long’s free-kick and was decisive otherwise. Booked.

Remeao Hutton: 6

Hutton was able to run at Crewe’s left side quite regularly and put a handful of decent crosses in. But he was clearly at fault for Adebisi’s goal after ball-watching from the cross.

Udoka Godwin-Malife: 8

After a strong showing in midweek, Godwin-Malife backed that up with another superb performance against Crewe. He scored his second career goal early on and often drove into midfield – regularly popping up near the Crewe box. His defending was almost faultless too.

Tom Brewitt: 8

My other contender for man of the match – which I realise seems odd in a game where Town conceded twice. But, from an individual aspect, he was brilliant. Another goal-saving block was the highlight of his day, but he really didn’t do much wrong at all. Booked.

Frazer Blake-Tracy: 7

Blake-Tracy just wasn’t quite at the same level as his central defensive partners, but he was still pretty good until late on where he tailed off slightly. Played an important part in both goals too – particularly with the assist for Young’s strike. Booked.

Benn Ward: 5

The Burnley loanee didn’t seem quite at it – Michael Flynn reported a back spasm post-match, which would explain the off colour performance. He could still claim the assist for UGM’s goal, however. Subbed.

George McEachran: 6

Despite playing ill, the midfielder was mobile enough and moved out into crossing positions on several occasions too. When the game became stretched, he still managed to make an impact. Subbed. Booked.

Saidou Khan: 6

Khan is playing with a touch more maturity and efficiency after a full season with Swindon in the EFL. He wasn’t flashy, apart from one entertaining turn, and kept Town moving at a reasonable tempo.

Dan Kemp: 6

Kemp wasn’t quite as influential as he has been in pre-season, but still made a nice habit of winning the ball back high up the pitch. He plays in a similar way to Jack Payne, which will continue to endear him to fans.

Jacob Wakeling: 6

Wakeling looks to have hit the gym over the summer, but even still, he was kicked off the pitch by Crewe and will have to pick himself up to face similar punishment in the future. The early tackle by Davies didn’t allow Wakeling to play with any freedom after due to the knock he picked up. Subbed.

Charlie Austin: 5

The missed chance at the end would have been gobbled up by Austin in years gone by, but the striker could not take the chance today. He seemed to slightly struggle with the pace of the game at times and was not as useful as anyone would have hoped in front of goal.


Jake Young: 7

I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Young so far in his two substitute appearances. His goal was really well taken, and he could have had another if he had been a touch more selfish. Seems to be playing with something to prove. Long may it continue.

Tariq Uwakwe: 5

The wing-back was trying too hard to play well against his former club and very little came off for him. Flynn pointed out his lack of match fitness post-match, which I would agree with – based on a lack of tracking back at times.

Liam Kinsella: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.
