Stevenage hosted Port Vale in League Two on Tuesday evening at the Lamex in front of 1,943 hardy souls. Read on for LAYTH YOUSIF’S player ratings


Seny Dieng: 6 - Paul Farman’s understudy has let no-one down since he was drafted into the side following the former Lincoln keeper’s hand injury

Luther James-Wildin: 6 - The talented right-back found himself in a promising position moments into the game but his shot flew past Port Vale keeper Scott Brown’s right-hand post

Scott Cuthbert: 6 - The powerful centre-half is always an aerial threat on attacking set-plays. Hailed by boss Dino Maamria for his defensive performance after the match as Boro picked up their sixth clean sheet of the season

Luke Wilkinson: 6 - Saturday’s thankfully unused reserve goalkeeper was a solid presence throughout

Steve Seddon: 6- Birmingham City’s U23 left-back had an underwhelming game. But then so did most others

Michael Timlin: 6 - Solid and consistent without ever dominating

Joel Byrom: 6 - Always a reassuring figure in the heat of battle. A calm, unruffled player appreciated by fans and team-mates alike

Emmanuel Sonupe: 6 - Has talent but the former Spurs academy man cut a peripheral figure at times as he struggled to impose himself in the game

Kurtis Guthrie: 6 - Laboured in possession at times. Insipid

Jamal Campbell-Ryce: 6 - The experienced wideman had a lively start as he worked the left flank in a bid to fire as many crosses into the box as possible.

Alex Revell: 6 - Did well to take the ball round the Valiant’s keeper Brown but could he have steadied himself before firing towards an unguarded net, albeit from an acute angle? Either way he should have scored


James Ball: 6 - On for Sonupe midway through the second half. Talented with quick feet but needs to find a rhythm

Liam Smyth: 6 - The 17-year-old will remember this match fondly even if no-one else will after making his league debut. One to watch

Port Vale:

Scott Brown: 6

Luke Joyce: 6

Leon Legge: 6

Tom Pope: 7

Luke Hannant: 6

Connell Rawlinson: 6

Nathan Smith: 6

Theo Vassel: 6

Tom Conlon: 3

Michael Clark: 6

Ben Whitfield: 6
