Newport County AFC

Joe Day: 7

Dan Butler: 7

Fraser Franks: 7.5

Robbie Willmott: 7

Matty Dolan: 7.5

Padraig Amond: 6.5

Jamille Matt: 6.5

Tyreeq Bakinson: 6.5

Scot Bennett: 7

Tyler Forbes: 7

Mickey Demetriou: 7


Antoine Semento: 8 - On for Bankinson

David Pipe: 6.5 - Replaced the injured Willmott


Seny Dieng: 6 - In for Will Appleyard after Thursday’s 8-0 home defeat by Charlton in the Checkatrade as first choice No1 Paul Farman remains sidelined with a hand injury. No chance with Matty Dolan’s spectacular long-range shot but rallied to display a calm effectiveness under pressure against an aerial threat. Showed good handling throughout. A cruel way to end the match

Luther James-Wildin: 6 - Arrived unmarked at the backpost to nod home the equaliser right on the stroke of half-time. This rising star needs to work on his concetration as his failure to clear effectively with seconds was the prelude to the winner.

Scott Cuthbert: 6.5 - A good organiser with an excellent vocal presence – attributes very much required during tough away matches at places like Rodney Parade

Ben Nugent: 6.5 - The left-footed giant centre-half put in a solid display as part of the Boro backline even if his distribution could be improved as could his touch when in possession

Steve Seddon: 6.5- Didn’t deserve the late winner after another reliable performance. Supplemented attacks as an auxiliary wing-back at times

Michael Timlin: 6 - Plays the simple ball well in tight situations as a defensive shield. No photographs this week but always in the frame in the heart of battle even if his yellow card hindered his effectiveness in the second half

Joel Byrom: 7 - Cool and calm on the pitch as he is deadpan off it. A true professional who is happy to perform unsung but vital work in the middle of the park. A reassuring presence

Danny Newton: 6.5 - The only survivor of the experimental side that lost 8-0 to Charlton in midweek worked as hard as he normally does

Ben Kennedy: 6.5 - Worked hard to create an opening but struggled to impose his undoubted talent on a tough afternoon

Jamal Campbell-Ryce: 7 - A rare start for the well-travelled 35-year-old. Not as effective as he would have liked but still an intermittent threat down the left flank including providing a large number of crosses into the box

Alex Revell: 6.5 - The experienced striker returned with a heavily strapped hand and wrist after suffering a painful dislocated thumb during last Saturday’s match against Colchester. Led the line well, not many better at this level than playing with his back to goal. Holds the ball off extremely well. Showed his leadership qualities with instruction to various players during breaks in play. Booked after tussling with Mickey Demetriou


James Ferry: 6 - Replaced Timlin midway through the second half

Emmanuel Sonupe: 6 - On for Campbell-Ryce

Alex Reid: 6 - On for Kennedy
