ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club's 3-1 victory away at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Jojo Wollacott: 7

Had no chance with the goal. Dominated his area and made a couple of comfortable saves.

Kaine Kesler-Hayden: 7

Like most of his teammates, KKH started slowly but really got going late on. His crossing was excellent all afternoon.

Akin Odimayo: 7

Very little danger came down Odimayo’s side all day. Rarely wasted the ball and was an assured presence.

Dion Conroy: 7

Tried too many long passes in the first half that didn’t find their intended target. A tactical tweak at half time stopped this happening and he was much more efficient with the ball. Brave in defence and was involved in attacks a couple of times too.

Romoney Crichlow: 7

Crichlow was aggressive from the start and came out of the back line to intercept or make a tackle a fair few times. He was pretty much a midfielder by the end as Town turned the screw.

Ellis Iandolo: 7

Despite getting caught ball-watching and being at fault for the goal, Iandolo had a pretty good game otherwise, getting forward with regularity and attempting to supply the bullets for those in forward areas.

Louis Reed: 7

Reed took the ball forward and made passes from 10 yards further forward than usual, allowing Swindon to pen Rovers in whenever they had possession. I’d guess his pass completion percentage would be well into the 90s.

Jack Payne: 8

Payne loves playing Bristol Rovers at the Memorial. He created the luck for his goal by busting a gut to make the run into the box, and he finished with aplomb. The usual energy and desire was evident once again. Subbed.

Ben Gladwin: 8

Arguably Gladwin’s best game of the season. His passing was done with intent, he looked strong and mobile, and he finished a great day with a well-taken penalty.

Alex Gilbert: 7

Gilbert looked more dangerous than Simpson with some tidy touches and had a golden chance to score but couldn’t take it. I was surprised Garner took him off, but then the Town boss proved why he is a manager and I’m not. Subbed.

Tyreece Simpson: 5

Just not his day – Simpson appeared to be off it this afternoon. If he could work on just hitting the near post, I feel he’d score a load more goals. I still believe in him as a talent, but that’s the inconsistency you get with a teenager. Subbed.


Harry McKirdy: 8

McKirdy changed the game when he came on – no question. He was electric and fully deserved a goal. Definition of a super sub.

Jonny Williams: 7

Williams continued the intensity of the man he replaced – Payne – and allowed Gladwin to carry on dominating the ball. He’ll be a big miss next Saturday.

Jayden Mitchell-Lawson: 6

His pace and mobility caused the tiring Rovers defence some more problems they didn’t need. JML wasn’t able to set his sights on goal, but did his job well enough.

Rob Hunt: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.
