James Trafford - 6

The default score for a goalkeeper that had nothing to do in ninety minutes. An easy day at the office for Traff.

Conor Bradley - 7

Got forward with purpose and ensured Bolton’s threat was predominantly down the right side. Should have found the target when through on goal in the second half.

Gethin Jones - 6

A solid if unspectacular performance. Geth will never let the side down.

Ricardo Almeida Santos - 7.5Embraced his role as the man tasked with keeping Clarke-Harris quiet. He came out on top of a tough physical battle.

George Johnston - 7.5

Stood up to the task after some poor aerial performances in recent games. Solid behind Jack Iredale, who had a difficult afternoon.

Jack Iredale - 6

Some good deliveries aside, it was his most ordinary performance yet as a Wanderer. Not at the races.

MJ Williams - 7.5

Will MJ ever get the respect he deserves? Snuffed out trouble in the midfield all afternoon. In the rough and tumble fixtures, he’s the first name on the team sheet.

George Thomason - 8.5

Outstanding. He was a class above every player on the pitch. He’s in an incredible run of form and long may it continue.

Kyle Dempsey - 6

Ran well and harried Peterborough when they were in possession. Didn’t contribute much to our build up play, though.

Dion Charles - 5.5

Charles ran well to press the Posh back line, but was wasteful with the ball. Two promising attacks were broken down by Charles’ poor decision making.

Elias Kachunga - 7

Worked hard as we have come to expect. An added bonus in this game was his ability to hold the ball up and bring the midfield into the play.


Dapo Afolayan - 7

Bright after coming on, and stayed disciplined in the middle of the park rather than wander out wide into a more natural position. A slice of good fortune for his goal, but a well deserved winner for the Whites.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson - 6

Barely had time to make an impact. Looked bright in spots of build up play.

Kieran Sadlier - 6

Poor Sadlier. He left Rotherham to avoid playing as a right wing back, and now finds himself at...left wing back? Maybe one day we’ll see him in his preferred midfield role.

Amadou Bakayoko - 5.5

Could have capped the day off with a decent pass to Bodvarsson in a late counter attack. Instead, his cross went wayward for a Peterborough throw-in.
