cameron dawson 7
Another quiet night, as is becoming largely the norm for the Wednesday nightcap. She had to stay alert to avoid a shot from Mellon in the first half.
liam palmer 8
Mr Consistent in this Wednesday team. He returned to the role of right-sided center midfielder and helped keep things nice and quiet at the back as he stepped forward when opportunity allowed.
aden flint 7
He commanded the defense again, but had very little to do in terms of repelling attacks. Aerially dominant, as usual.

Akin Famewo 7
He kept tabs on Morecambe’s dangerous man, Cole Stockton, and made a big deal of making sure he kept quiet. Right at home in that left-sided center midfield role.
Dennis Adeniran 8
Deployed on the right wing, but you wouldn’t have known it was a relatively foreign role for him. He was very forward and didn’t ask himself many issues defensively.
George Byers 8
Big concern after he limped off at the interval. Before that, energetic was a constant threat. He set up the first goal and was just hitting his way.
Barry Banana 8
Skipper scored the first goal, although it seemed to have gone slightly wide. He started the move that led to the second as well, picking Johnson on the wing. He enjoyed a lot of freedom with which to assert his creativity.
will vaulks 7
He kept the ticking in the engine room and played some lovely spray balls. Another competent performance from the midfielder.
marvin johnson 7
Far more offensive display than he offered against Ipswich, perhaps understandable given Morecambe’s position. He sets up the second goal with a nice provocative cross.
Josh Windass 8
He got the finishing touch on Smith’s flick-on, for the second goal. He was busy all night and is developing a rapport with his fellow striker as each game goes on. He capped it off with third at the end.
Michael Smith 7
He ran the ragged Morecambe back line and probably thought he had scored when he connected with the second, only for Windass to deflect his movement onto goal. He was a little careless with the ball with his back to the goal.
Fisayo Dele-Bashiru (For Byers, 46) 6
He didn’t really uproot any trees going into the second half, but he provided an assist for Windass’s second.
Tyreeq Bakinson (By Bannan, 77) N/A
Not used: Stockdale, Brown, James, Alimi-Adetoro, Shipston.
