Kosta Barbarouses — 7.5

Chased every ball incessantly and never ran out of energy. Pounced on a mistimed challenge with impressive impetus, but his resultant shot was well blocked.

Had a strong showing and could not really be faulted beyond some poor touches where he appeared to overrun with the ball.

Ola Toivonen — 5

Contested well aerially but was rarely able to influence the match. A quiet and relatively uninspiring night where he could have taken control of proceedings.


Carl Valeri — 7

Victory began to show much more desire going forward as Valeri arrived on the pitch.

Kenny Athiu — 7

Had a positive impact off the bench, making his presence felt with his aerial ability, smart movement and intent passing.
