Average Player Ratings V Chester (A)
City went into the festive season with an action packed draw against Chester FC. Here's how the travelling support rated city's performance:
Man of the match on Saturday was City's all action fullback Tom Miller (7.00). Miller has been a little quieter recently but was certainly a name mentioned plenty of times in commentary against Chester, having played a part in all of City's goals and also been the man fouled for Chester's red card. He certainly wasn't a favourite of the home support but another good display earned him plaudits from travelling Imps, with one poster noting that he played like an 'extra winger' at times.
Second place meanwhile was shared between Luke Foster and substitute (and late hero) Conner Robinson who both scored 6.33. Those two - alongside Miller - were the only players to sneak above the average mark of 6, with Foster praised by Chesterimp for a 'solid' display. Conner meanwhile stole in at the far post to score City's late equaliser, but there was a real variation in marks for his cameo with Steve O'Dare rather less impressed (4.00) than Optimusimp's 9.00.
Elsewhere, and it was a good day for Bohan Dixon who is often the target of a few low scores. He came in after Robinson and Foster with 5.67, and Chesterimp noted the quality of his looped header for City's first goal as well as an impressive work ethic. Other ok performances this week came from Jake Sheridan (5.33), Alan Power (5.33) and Sean Newton (5.33), although the latter's part in Chester's goals was questioned.
Poor scorers this week included Nick Wright (2.33) who has really done little to impress the City faithful over the course of the season, while Paul Farman (3.67) remains a question mark in between the sticks. Ben Tomlinson (3.67) didn't have his finest day either, with the odd grumble arising from a lot of running and not a lot of end product.
The average mark was 5.10.Full ratings are as follows:
Subs: Rowe (4.67), Robinson (6.33), Jordan (5.00).Article Sponsored By JTI Photos.
