The keeper enjoyed this one after his mistake against the Blues in December. Made three good saves, denying Adams in a one-on-one. Standard type of Fisher display, defended steadily, won his fair share of free-kicks and contributed to a clean sheet. Adams and Jutkiewicz were tough costumers but Storey coped well against them. One sliced clearance aside, a decent performance. Excellent again in the centre of defence and strong with his heading on a day when plenty was in the air. Pushed forward well to set up a good first-half chance, while he worked hard to keep Blues winger Mahoney in check. Played on the edge for most of the game after an early booking but still made tackles and tried to get PNE playing. Not his most fluent display but got clear to win the corner from which he set up North Ends late winner. Started out wide before moving into a more central role in the first half. Didnt quite fire and went off with a knock. Played in a variety of roles in the forward line and after a bit of a struggle, popped up to head the stoppage-time winner. Frustrating game for the loanee, in line with his fellow PNE attackers. Played wide and had a stint up front but without much reward. Rewarded with a start after his goal at Boro. Got little change from Morrison and Dean but never stopped working. Replaced Potts after an hour. Looked a touch rusty not a surprise after four months out. Came on for the injured Hughes in the 70th minute. Steady performance. Made an impact after replacing Stockley. Used his pace to worry the Birmingham defence.
