Dave Seddon gives his verdict on the individual performances against Millwall

Chris Maxwell 7

Not many shots to deal with but had to be a ‘sweeper keeper’ four times, coming out of his box to kick clear.

Alan Browne 7

Filled in at right-back and did a very creditable job. Gave North End an attacking outlet down that side of the pitch too.

Tom Clarke 8

This was the skipper’s type of game, up against the physical Gregory and Morison. Won plenty of challenges in the air.

Ben Davies 7

Not quite as comfortable as Clarke was next to him but coped quite well with Millwall’s direct style of play.

Greg Cunningham 7

Set-up the equaliser with a strong run and cross and almost did likewise a couple of minutes later. Good to see him back fit.

Ben Pearson 7

Had an early injury scare but got up to play until the 78th minute. Was happy to be patient and keep possession in the first half.

Paul Gallagher 7

Dropped very deep in the first half to get the ball off the keeper in an attempt to build play. Got more effective later in the game.

Billy Bodin 6

Made his Championship debut and had a couple of long-distance sighters. Will need time to settle and was replaced at half-time.

Josh Harrop 6

Didn’t have the same impact on the game as he had done against Middlesbrough and Wycombe.

Callum Robinson 7

Scored PNE’s equaliser with a good piece of improvisation - chesting it over the line. Had looked lively before that.

Jordan Hugill 6

Had a battle against Millwall’s pair of centre-halves and didn’t get much service. Moved wider towards the end and got more joy.

subs used

Tom Barkhuizen 7

The half-time substitute gave North End more drive down the right and then up the middle.

Daryl Horgan 6

Helped liven PNE up in the final third although his passing was a little bit suspect at times.

Daniel Johnson 7

Might have only come on in the 78th minute but his passing proved key, with him starting the ball rolling for the equaliser.
