Got the nod despite the signing of Ripley and did well. Made a good save from Celinas deflected shot before half-time. Had one of PNEs first-half chances with a header. Had plenty of pace against him but did fine until injury forced him off. Another strong performance from the young centre-half, read the game well and tended to be proactive rather than reactive. Not overly troubled in the first half but playing on the left side instead of the right will always take something off his game. Put in a strong display in the second half when moved into the middle. Looked far more comfortable there than at left-back. Looked to be still shaking off the rust after his four-game ban. However, he competed well enough and showed glimpses of his usual self. Aside from scoring the penalty not the most effective of afternoons for the midfielder, with him struggling to find a good tempo. Got himself involved in the game well, coming inside off the right. Looked good moving with the ball and will be pleased with his debut. Got more into the game in the advanced midfield role in the second half before finishing as an emergency left-back. Very much on the fringes of the game, having to play off the left rather than his preferred right-wing role. Impressive debut leading the attack, ball stuck to him well. It was his cross which led to the penalty. Came on at half-time and was sent-off nine minutes from time, perhaps rather harshly. Replaced the injured Clarke and filled in pretty solidly at right-back. A lively 15-minute cameo, gave PNE more of a threat up front. Saw a shot saved.
