WANDERERS (4-2-3-1)

 

ANDY LONERGAN...5

After emerging relatively blameless from the Reading defeat, you can’t look past his mistake in the second half as the turning point.

ALEX BAPTISTE...6

Solid enough and tried hard to get forward and support in midfield too. No questioning his commitment to the cause.

ZAT KNIGHT...6

Put his head on most things that came his way and kept things simple in possession. A good riposte to last week.

MATT MILLS...7

Comfortable against Cornelius in the first half and looked to be up for the fight in the second, quite literally at times.

TIM REAM...7

Endured a nightmare at Reading – but this was better by a country mile. Assumed set-piece duties too.

JAY SPEARING...6

Still struggles alongside Kamara. Buzzed around as ever but struggled to really cut through a congested midfield battle.

MEDO KAMARA...6

Frustrated the crowd by losing the ball too much in the early stages but kept going and broke up plenty of Cardiff attacks.

CHUNG-YONG LEE...7

The Korean winger was perhaps Wanderers’ best player of the first 45 minutes but still lacking that real killer instinct.

NEIL DANNS...7

Showed plenty of industry in the middle of the park and retrieved plenty of possession in midfield.

CHRIS EAGLES...5

Just couldn’t get his game going. Ran down too many blind alleys and ended up being replaced in the second half.

CRAIG DAVIES...7

Worked hard for very little gain up front. An impressive 90 minutes considering this was his first full game since August.

Subs: Moritz (for Eagles) 71 – Brazilian couldn’t find his shooting range 5 Odelusi (for Medo) 71 – Tried to get things going in the later stages 6

Not used: Bogdan, Pratley, Vela, White, Hall.

STAR MAN: Chung-Yong Lee If something was going to happen, it was most likely going to pass through the Korean midfielder who had an extra bit of bite about his game against Cardiff.

Still looks a little unsure in front of goal but he did muster a couple of efforts that passed the post by inches.
