Adam Federici: 6
Took the ball out of the net after penalty and that was about it all evening
Chris Gunter: 5
Overlapped in first half but on different wavelength to McCleary. Booking summed up his evening
Zat Knight: 3
Dreadful performance. Low on confidence high on mistakes
Alex Pearce: 6
Defended strongly and covered for Knight well.
Jordan Obita: 7
Defended and counter attacked well. Good link play with Ake.
Oliver Norwood: 5
Numerous misplaced passes and on wrong end of Pearce's tongue more than once.
Nathan Ake: 8
On such a poor surface gave a very assured performance. Always looked to have more time than others. Held his own physically marking corners too.
Hal Robson-Kanu: 5
The enigma had a typical Robson-Kanu enigmatic performance.
Beat his fullback easily, but quality of delivery never matched his ability to get past the opposition.
Yakubu Aiyegbeni: 4
Too slow and never held the ball up to bring others into play.
Kwesi Appiah: 4
Game seemed to pass him by. One chance in first half which he missed, but generally anonymous.
Pavel Pogrebnyak: 7
Immediate impact with the cross for the goal. Worked hard, but needed greater service to be a real threat.
Jamie Mackie: 6
Tireless performance as usual, similar to Bradford on similar surface.
Simon Cox: 5
Little time or possession to make an impact
