ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the Robins’ 2-1 victory away at Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night.

Murphy Mahoney: 8

Mahoney is quickly making a real name for himself as a razor-sharp shot stopper. He pulled off a couple of excellent saves – in particular, a David Seaman-esque tip off the line in the first half. Without his first-half impact in particular, Town would not have won that game.

Remeao Hutton: 6

Hutton was largely untroubled defensively and was a helpful asset, as usual, when going forward with several dangerous crosses.

Udoka Godwin-Malife: 7

The former Forest Green man was given a tough time by Kyle McAllister at times, but Godwin-Malife limited the winger to speculative shots if he ever zipped past. He broke forward on a handful of occasions, playing his part in Town’s equaliser. Booked.

Tom Brewitt: 8

I thought Tuesday night was Brewitt’s most complete game so far. He was excellent. Stevens and Omotoye had very little to go on thanks to some wise interceptions and aerial dominance from Brewitt.

Frazer Blake-Tracy: 7

While Blake-Tracy ended the game with the most important contribution, his first-half display was way off the level fans have come to expect from Town’s vice-captain. Much like his team, Blake-Tracy improved as time wore on. Booked.

Brooklyn Genesini: 6

A tidy debut start in English league football for Genesini. Positioning-wise, he needs to improve slightly, but there was plenty of good in there too – chiefly, his cross which led to Town’s equaliser. Subbed.

Liam Kinsella: 5

The former Walsall man failed to stamp his authority on the game in midfield. He was slipping and mis-hitting passes – summing up Town’s poor start. Prior to being taken off with 20 minutes to go, Kinsella had tightened his game up somewhat. But it was far from vintage. Booked. Subbed.

George McEachran: 6

McEachran endured a similar first half to Kinsella but almost provided Town’s equaliser courtesy of a thunderbolt from the edge of the box with cracked the angle between bar and post. He tidied up effectively in the second half as others shone.

Dan Kemp: 7

Kemp wasn’t involved in an awful lot going forward as Town opted to cross more often than not, but he continued to drive into the box and take up good positions. That came to fruition in the form of Swindon’s first goal.

Jake Young: 6

How Young actually made it through the 90 minutes is anyone’s guess as he was suffering with cramp deep into the second half. His desperation to score was evident, but that sometimes prevented him from relaxing and executing his skills properly. One particular positive was his impressive shot of pace.

Charlie Austin: 6

Austin will wonder how he hasn’t managed to score at least one – but Luke Daniels just had his number in this game. The chest and volley towards the net deserved more, but a goal is coming for Austin – I wouldn’t mind betting he stands up on Saturday.


Jake Cain: 6

Cain helped Town kick on and take control in the second half, starting most of their attacks. He kept it simple and allowed the wide players to do their thing.

Benn Ward: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.

UNUSED SUBS: Conor Brann, Harrison Minturn, Tariq Uwakwe, Jaxon Brown, Abu Kanu.
