There were strong performances from Ben Pearson, Daniel Johnson and Tom Barkhuizen in particular. Here are the player ratings. Do you agree or disagree with them?
5. Andrew Hughes 7
Returned at left-back and played 72 minutes before a tight hamstring forced him off. Provided more balance and extra height, while he got forward well in the first half.
6. Ben Pearson 8
Excellent display in midfield, his pass in the build-up to the first goal was tremendous. Also set up Sinclair for a good chance. Never stopped working.
7. Alan Browne 7
Played in the '8' position and had a hand in the second goal. Didn't get forward as much although his role was to be slightly deeper
8. Tom Barkhuizen 8
Scored the first goal and set-up the second - it was another good derby performance form the winger. Full of pace and running, he offered an outlet later on when PNE were trying to relieve pressure.
