Here are the PNE player ratings from a game of contrasting halves for Alex Neil's men.
Bit unlucky with the first goal, the ball going in off his back after a shot had hit the post. Like his colleagues, rather hesitant in the first half.
Big improvement in the second half, his cross led to the first goal and by the end he even chanced his arm with a long-range free-kick!
After a shaky first half the centre-half was very good in the second 45 minutes, limiting Gallaghers threat to very little.

Had a difficult time at centre-half and a difficult task in stepping into Ben Davies shoes. Got better in the second half.
