Here are the PNE player ratings, with Callum Robinson taking the starman award.

Kept a clean sheet without having a great deal to do. Had the mix-up with Jordan Storey in the second half.
Impressive first start at right-back. Did his share of defending and got forward well. Will have bigger tests.

Made a good sliding block to clear from El Mizouni in the first half. Had the mix-up with Declan Rudd in the second half bot otherwise solid.
Back to his solid best after a couple of dips. Defended well against Kayden Jackson.
Played at left-back instead of on the right and handled the new challenge very comfortably.
Played tucked in on the right side of midfield. Put over the corner from which Davies hit the post.
Strong performance in midfield, used the ball well in finding Robinson for the first goal and setting up a couple of other chances.
His use of the ball was better than of late. Involved in the build-up to the first goal.
Scored the first two goals and claimed assists with both of Nmecha's goals. Great performance coming inside off the left-wing. Starman.
Played behind striker Lukas Nmecha and benefited from being more central and slightly deeper. Great run in the build-up to the third goal.
Scored twice, had one cleared off the line and twice had one-on-ones. Played up front after his recent stint on the wing.
Replaced Gallagher after 70 minutes and showed some nice touches. Set Stockley up for a late chance.
Came on for Maguire after the fourth goal. Had a couple of runs on the left-wing
Took Robinson's place and had a couple of chances - just missing a Fisher cross and then seeing a shot blocked by the keeper.
