A View From The West: Mansfield Town (A)

Ryan Cawley provides The Star Lane End with his ratings following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Mansfield Town:

O’Hara – 7 – Good save second half but palmed the first goal right back into the danger zone.

Hodgkiss – 6 – Poor game from Jared. Took too long on the ball and gave away possession.

Cameron – 9 – MOM – Despite conceding three big Nath was a colossus at the back. Won everything and was calm and composed.

Kellegher – 6.5 – Didn’t cover himself in glory for a couple of their goals.

Welch-Hayes – 7 – Played well, would be much more comfortable playing on the other flank on his favoured right foot. Maybe switch him there and bring Fitz back in?

Evans – 7 – Finished well for his goal but struggled again out on the wing, would love to see him back in the middle.

Rose – 6 – Gave away fouls and was dominated in midfield by a younger and energetic outfit.

Maycock – 7 – Lots of energy and kept play moving, just no final product.

Cole – 7 – Looked a threat in the number 10 position and kept finding space. Looks a technically sound player.

Marsh – 7.5 – Been impressed with Ty of late. Macc’s Mr.Versatile played out on the left and was a constant thorn for the Stags defence to deal with.


Scott Wilson: On another day, the striker would have been on the Silkmen score sheet (Image courtesy of Chelsie Wilson).

Wilson – 7 – Unlucky with a shot rebounding off the post towards the end of the first half and was through again in the second only to be thwarted by their keeper.


Ntambwe – Always demanding the ball and looked a powerhouse. His strength in midfield could prove to be the missing link needed in the coming games.

Biabi – Didn’t have many touches and struggles to get involved. Shorts were too big for him also.

Lloyd – Good to see Ryan back but had little time to influence the game.


Sol – 7 – We lost the game but were well in it for the majority against a good Mansfield outfit. Will need to focus on finding his best 11 with the new faces added in the January window. Hopefully with the additions and returning players we will have enough to survive. Silkmen till we die!

Whitaker – Didn’t see much of the bald eagle today. Home fans were giving the bald liner some stick.
