Chesterfield came close through this chance

There were a number of impressive performances with a few contenders for the Man of the Match award.

Shwan Jalal - 8 - Made a couple of important saves, well worth his eighth clean sheet in 13 appearances.
Haydn Hollis - 7 - Saw a lot of the ball, looked much better on it after the break. Almost scored a sensational goal. One of his better Town displays.

Josef Yarney - 7 - Solid at the back, played a few lovely passes. A mature performance from such a young player.
Will Evans - 7 - Very steady. Nothing flashy in this performance. Might have been at fault had Quigley headed in late on, but the header missed.
Jonathan Smith - 7 - Not as effective with the ball at his feet, but contributed to the defensive effort and always made himself an option.
Marc-Antoine Fortune - 6 - You can almost always see what he's trying to do, his touch just doesn't always allow him to do it. Could and perhaps should have scored.
Robbie Weir - 7- Nipped in to break up play. Formation allowed him to concentrate on defensive duties, which he did well. A position he seems well suited to.
Ellis Chapman - 7 - Curled in some very nice crosses. Looked much better on the ball than defending, but was playing in a new position. Faded later on but played his part.
Curtis Weston - 8 - He did okay before the break but after it he was superb. Seemed to pop up everywhere, chased players down and stopped counter attacks. An excellent box to box performance.
Scott Boden - 7 - Had few decent chances to score, but won and scored his penalty excellently. Link up play was good, particularly when Denton came on. An intelligent performance.
Lee Shaw - 7 - The little work horse was up and down the flank all afternoon. Played a part in shackling the tricky Kosylo. Put some nice crosses in, including one for the penalty. Close to scoring, again.
