ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club's 3-1 victory over Scunthorpe United.

Jojo Wollacott: 7

Pulled off a handful of excellent saves and claimed aerial balls really well throughout. At fault for the penalty, however.

Kaine Kesler-Hayden: 9

The Villa man was excellent on his debut, showing pace, awareness, and most importantly winning the penalty that got Town back into the game. Hopefully, his injury is not too serious, and he can continue like that all season. Subbed.

Dion Conroy: 8

Conroy looked back to himself, winning headers, making pin-point accurate long passes, and leading the team calmly from the back. Carded for a silly challenge though. Booked.

Mathieu Baudry: 7

Got himself into a few tricky spots but mostly managed to get out of them OK. Baudry was solid but still does not look particularly comfortable on the bal.

Rob Hunt: 7

Hunt was strong and solid down the left, and dealt well with any threats. He wasn’t given much help on occasion, but he managed to limit the damage from the Scunthorpe right well.

Ellis Iandolo: 8

The versatile left-back did a very good job alongside Grant in the first half, breaking up play and setting his sights on a couple of occasions. He was quieter in the second half as other stood out and took the game by the scruff of the neck.

Anthony Grant: 8

Grant was another who looked back to his old self. He dominated the midfield and allowed the front four to play with freedom. Booked.

Jack Payne: 8

Town’s vice-captain covered every blade of grass as usual and capped off a strong performance with a well-taken penalty. He had a long time to think about his options, so he stuck the chance away well.

Ben Gladwin: 8

Showed some top mobility and reminded Town fans what he could do with long-range passing and shooting. Scored a superb goal too to help Swindon win the game. Subbed.

Harry McKirdy: 8

Enjoyed an exciting battle with Pugh down the Town left all game but eventually gained the upper hand. Promised Garner he would score on his debut and duly delivered with a well-timed tap-in. Subbed.

Tyreece Simpson: 7

The young striker was all at sea in the first half but transformed into a different player after the break. He deserved a goal, and would have got one if not for a stunning save from Rory Watson. Booked.


Romoney Crichlow: N/A

Ryan East: N/A

Harry Parsons: N/A

All three came on too late to receive a rating but helped Town to shut the game down in the final moments.
