Worcester City (4-4-2).

5 Ross – his distribution was erratic and you have to question his positioning and organisation of his wall for Louis Briscoe’s free-kick.

6 Hutchison – City have certainly missed the defender’s ability in the air during his absence, but appears better suited at centre back.

5 Oji – not the same player who starred in Worcester’s 0-0 draw at Boston in October as he failed to impose himself in either box.

6 Sharpe – a decent display from the centre-back who was taken off with 15 minutes to go as City went on the offensive.

5 Chambers – playing at left-back, the 36-year-old found life difficult defending the lively Jay Rollins who got beyond him on several occasions.

6 Jackman – ball spent too much time in the air for the midfielder to influence things before making way for Chay Scrivens.

5 Nelson-Addy – saw plenty of the ball and made a promising start but conceded the penalty and lost his way in the second period.

6 J Keane – broke up play well, especially in the first half, but when he got hold of the ball his delivery lacked accuracy.

6 C Keane – back to his old self as he showed tenacity to drive forward and sent in some good crosses from the left.

5 Murphy – missed the penalty and somehow hit the bar with the follow-up from six yards out. His head dropped after that.

7 ENGLISH – worked incredibly hard in a scrappy contest, winning headers and earning numerous free-kicks for his side. My man of the match.
