Impact: In goal for whole game and got better as the game went on. Made a few catches from crosses but didn’t have too many saves to make. Not at fault for their goal as Adeyemi was gifted a free header. Quick off his line and quick in distribution but had a couple of wayward kicks.
Manager’s Quote: We changed Nick Pope because he was a bit unlucky in the last few games so we played our third goalkeeper Neil Etheridge and I think he was fantastic today so that will give him a boost
