'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Average Player Ratings V Alfreton (A)

City bagged themselves a very decent point at one of the hardest venues to visit in the Conference, courtesy of Sean Newton's 94th minute volley. Let's take a look at how the Imps' squad fared in the eyes of Vital posters.

Man of the match was City's on loan goalkeeper Nick Townsend (8.10), who put in a calm and confident display belying his tender years. One particularly magnificent save denied Harrad in the first half and it is hard to argue with the contention that the young 'keeper kept us in it at times. Johnolbe summarised the mood in describing Townsend as 'excellent'.

Second place went to Charlee Adams (7.00), the other Birmingham loanee! I think it's fair to say that those two have had a positive impact on the club, and Adams shone on Saturday, breaking up play and using the ball neatly. He looks to be keeping Nolan out of the team and it will be interesting to see if he is available come the summer! Adams was Bumbleimp's man of the match because he was 'assured on the ball' while johnolbe labelled the midfielder 'the best of the outfield lot'.

Lots of players found it hard going in the second half, with Sean Newton edging third with just 6.20. Newton looked at fault for Alfreton's opener, but slammed home City's goal and who can fault his 100 yard run to celebrate with the away fans? Both Bumbleimp and CrazyTuba reckoned that goal and the subsequent scenes earned the fullback an extra point!

City fans were a little perplexed by the return of Bohan Dixon, who is anything but a fan favourite (2.40), while Conner Robinson was extremely quiet in his cameo (3.20). Thierry Audel meanwhile had what was arguably his toughest outing yet (5.40). Taking a quick look at posters and there was a very small range of marks with general agreement across the board. CrazyTuba was narrowly the highest scoring poster (5.64 average) with johnolbe and Steve O`Dare both the lowest markers with 5.43.

Full ratings are as follows:

Townsend 8.10
Gray 6.10
Audel 5.40
Brown 5.60
Newton 6.20
Jordan 5.20
Adams 7.00
Power 5.40
Tomlinson 6.00
Rowe 5.20
Dixon 2.40
(Robinson 3.20, Sheridan 5.60, Nolan 5.80).
