We played, we lost. Here are my player ratings from the game:
Remi Matthews - 8
Yes a goalkeeper who has conceded 4 deserves an 8. He was easily our best player and without several good saves and a penalty save, the game would have been a lot worse.
Pawel Olkowski- 4.5
Showed some bright sparks attacking, however didn’t put in enough effort in defence. Regularly jogged back when Norwich were attacking.
David Wheater- 3.5
Did make some important tackles to be a little fair, hence the .5. School boy ball watching, too slow to turn, dreadful performance.
Mark Beevers- 3.5
See Wheater. Puts midfielders into trouble with wayward, awful passing.
Jason Lowe- 4.5
Distribution awful, however does at least try to put a shift in.
Craig Noone- 5.5
Played in the wrong position first half, probably ran the most. Our best attacking threat in the second half.
Callum Connolly - 4
Again played a couple of positions, put himself about however awful distribution and a real lack of quality when defending.
Josh Vela- 4.5
Perks up with the ball, shows attacking intent and positive passing, however doesn’t look interested in defending. A deserved half time sub.
Luke Murphy- 5
Gets too much stick. Gave away several fouls, however he is one of a few players who look for that forward pass. Puts a shift in.
Clayton Donaldson- 4
Held the ball up well at times, missed two glorious opportunities
Josh Magennis- 6
Might not always have the quality however did everything asked of him. Won everything in the air, put himself about well. Easily our best outfield player.
Joe Williams- 5
Looked early on that he may have been involved too soon after injury. Started slow, however got into the game and provided some bright spells.
Sammy Ameobi- 5
What can I say that hasn’t already been said. Could be a player in this league if he tried more. Had his usual try from 35 yards.
Will Buckley- N/A
Can’t say much, Parky is always bringing this man on.
Worst referee I’ve ever seen. Made so many errors in favour of both Bolton and Norwich.
