Hitchin Town hosted Hastings United in the FA Cup third qualifying round at Top Field on Saturday. Read on for CometSport’s verdict.

Hitchin Town:

Michael Johnson: 7.5 - Solid and unflappable. Not as busy as he might have expected but the sign of an excellent goalkeeper is to make saves during a quiet match, which he did

Alex Anderson: 7.5 – Showed defensive discipline throughout

Noah Chesmain: 7.5 - Kept his shape well and showed a willingness to supplement attacks whenever possible

Matt Spring: 8 - Assist for the opening goal after curling in a peach for Ferrell to nod home in the sheeting rain. Deserved his man of the match

Dan Webb (c): 7.5 - Captain. Leader. And if the Canaries can navigate 90 more minutes in the next round of the world’s oldest knock-out tournament he could well soon add the prefix Top Field legend if the side can in anyway replicate the achievements of their mid-90s counterparts

Lewis Ferrell: 7.5 - Angled a precise header past former Canary Charlie Horlock to put Hitchin ahead on a sodden afternoon

Scot Belgrove: 7.5 - Tireless, hard-working and fully-committed. Just like the rest of his colleagues. Excellent effort. Another deserving of a round of applause when being replaced

Jay Dowie: 7 - Put in a shift to help his side through to the next round

Ezra Forde: 7 - Fouled in the box to win the penalty that Josh Bickerstaff converted

Isaac Galliford: 7 - Worked hard in the rain all afternoon and deserved his ovation when replaced by Jack Green midway through the second half

Josh Bickerstaff: 7.5 - Calmly slotted home his vital spot-kick early in the second half in difficult conditions. A class act

Substitutes:

Jack Green: 7 - On for Galliford. Booked for a rumbustuous challenge

Robbie Burns: 7 - On for Forde

Charlie Thake: 7 - On for Belgrove

Hastings United:

Charlie Horlock: 6.5

Jamie Fielding: 6

Jamal Hewlett-Mundle: 6

Tom Climpson: 6

Emmanuel Mensah: 6

Jack Dixon: 6.5

Sam Adams: 6

Hassan Ibrahim: 6

Dayshonne Gelding: 6

Tom Vickers: 6.5

Daniel Ajaklaye: 6

Substitutes:

Adam Lovatt: 6 - On for Ibrahim

Sam Cruthwell: 6 - On for Vickers
