Here is how we rated the performance of City players:
Alex Palmer: He made a great save in the second half, but could do very little. 7/10
TJ Ioma: Back to the starting lineup, not a single foot slipped. Written as such a young player. 8/10
Joe Walsh: A solid display at the heart of the defense. 7/10
Louis Montz: A Colossus in the back came first on the display with another goal. A goalkeeping error, however, is a good strike. 8/10
Thayo Edoon: The first half saw him take a yellow card. But Jones created a great cross for the goal and improved in the second half. 6/10
Conor McGrandils: Really classy display in midfield. Another credible performance. 7/10
James Jones: Helped City win the midfield battle. 7/10
George Grant: He ran the game and showed his impressive passing performance, nothing more than a build-up to the first goal. 7/10
Harry Anderson: Normal non-stop display from the winger. Made some really dangerous crosses. 7/10
Tom Hopper: Dale, who played a key role in creating space for his teammates, threatened the central defenders. 7/10
Brennan Johnson: Dale worries whenever the ball arrives with his speed and strategy. 7/10
Anthony Scully (Johnson 73): N / A.
Max Melbourne (on Addon 78): N / A.
