ADVER Sport assess the performances of the Swindon Town players following the club’s 3-0 win away at Crewe Alexandra in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Jojo Wollacott: 6

Aside from a few crosses, Wollacott wasn’t required to do much more than pass it out from the back. Going short wasn’t the problem, but his long-range kicking was woeful. I know it was windy, but even still.

Kaine Kesler-Hayden: 8

The attacking wing-back proved a real handful for Crewe and regularly got forward to play his part in attacks. A performance to be proud of, for sure.

Mathieu Baudry: N/A

Only on for 15 minutes therefore does not receive a rating. Hopefully his injury is not too serious. Subbed.

Dion Conroy: 7

Conroy produced another aerially-dominant display and rarely allowed Porter or Mandron to have any effect. Could have had an assist if McKirdy took his early chance.

Akin Odimayo: 7

His passing was calm and accurate, and he tidied up well when necessary. I can’t remember an opportunity Crewe created because of an Odimayo mistake.

Ellis Iandolo: 7

The left-back didn’t quite meet his previous high standards, but he battled away really well and gave everything for the team. Nabbed the assist for Reed’s opener too.

Jack Payne: 7

Asked to do a deeper role again, Payne was able to recycle possession well and use his energy to stop Crewe playing in the middle. He came into his own as Crewe tired late on while he did not.

Louis Reed: 9

Reed is a wonderful player in every facet of the game, and he proved that once again by barely putting a foot wrong all day. Two superb goals capped of a man-of-the-match display. Booked. Subbed.

Jonny Williams: 7

Needless booking aside, Williams was a menace going forward. It seems as though he’s close to 100 per cent match fit now, which is a worry for League Two defences everywhere. Booked. Subbed.

Harry McKirdy: 6

I thought McKirdy was trying too hard to get one over his old club and didn’t make as many good decisions as he needed to. Mind you, he did play a wonderfully-weighted pass through to Simpson for his goal, so it wasn’t all bad. Subbed.

Tyreece Simpson: 8

Simpson definitely played with a confidence after last weekend’s brace against Oldham. He was strong throughout and took one of his chances well – though he could have had two or three. Subbed.


Rob Hunt: 8

Given he had very little time to prepare, Hunt’s debut at right centre-back was incredibly impressive. He was strong, positionally-astute, and tackled well.

Ben Gladwin: 6

The central midfielder came on with the game almost won anyway, but gave Town a nice bit of control in midfield. A solid 20 minutes or so from Gladwin.

Ryan East: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.

Alex Gilbert: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.

Jayden Mitchell-Lawson: N/A

Came on too late to receive a rating.
