The Star’s Paul Goodwin assesses the individual performances from today’s FA Cup third round tie.

IAN LAWLOR 7

Confident display. Dealt well with crosses and punched with conviction. Could not be blamed for the goal.

MATTY BLAIR 6

Made a few trademark forward runs but his attacking influence was limited from right back.

MATHIEU BAUDRY 6

Not at his best defensively or with the ball at his feet.

ANDY BUTLER 6

Had a difficult afternoon up against Andrew.

NIALL MASON 4

Looked uncomfortable at left back from the outset and struggled to contain Cannon. Improved in the second half.

JORDAN HOUGHTON 6

Knitted play together but was unable to really stamp his authority on the game.

RODNEY KONGOLO 8

Excellent performance. Found space in a congested midfield and provided a constant outlet with his running.

TOMMY ROWE 7

Showed good composure on the ball, made a few things happen but missed a good chance late on.

ALFIE BEESTIN 6

Showed a couple of lovely flashes of skill but was guilty of missing the best chance of the game.

ALFIE MAY 5

Worked hard in typical fashion but remained on the fringe of the game and barely got a sight of goal.

JOHN MARQUIS 6

Lacked the intensity of recent displays. Unlucky to see an effort come back off the post.

SUBS USED

JAMES COPPINGER 6

For Beestin 64: Tried his best to make a difference, without much luck.
