Match Ratings V Boston United

Kevin Pilkington. In fairness, could hardly be faulted for any of the goals, with his defenders in front of him leaving him fully exposed. Besides that was comfortable for the most part. 6

Silk...Naive return to League action
Gary Silk.
Out of position for Boston's first goal, the right-back struggled on his return to York Street. Played his part in Alan White's strike, but seemed defensively a little naïve. 5

Alan White. What can you say about Notts' captain? He always makes an impression. He was superb defensively against Southampton, inept against Bury, good until Notts were 3-1 up today, including his goal, then inexcusable after that! 5

Stephen Hunt. The towering youngster was hardly at fault for the three concessions, however, he was part of an unusually poor back four. Therefore he cannot beside himself of the blame. 6

Austin McCann. As consistent as ever, he provided a good outlet going forward. Nevertheless, an uncharacteristic mistake allowed Boston to seal a draw. Will be disappointed on his return. 7

Ian Ross. Asked to perform out of position on the right, the loan star knuckled down to his task well, with some good passing, and good work rate. He posed a consistent threat to struggling Boston. 7

Matt Somner. Has struggled for form recently, and he did so again today. Gave away an unnecessary free-kick allowing for Boston's opener, and he consistently gifted possession away. 5

Mike Edwards. Out of position in midfield, he is not at his best. He has been immense in defence this year, and it was no coincidence to see Notts slip up defensively without him. Lacked anything in midfield. 5

Andy Parkinson. Without standing out or being at his best, ‘Parky' was a threat and caused a few headaches for the Pilgrims. His final ball lacked a punch, but he was willing and determined. Left the field 3-1 up. 7

Jason Lee. Magnificent. Two goals, one assist, a booking, and plenty of bumps and bruises I'm sure. Lee was a hero out there today, and caused much damage and confusion in the Boston rearguard. 9

Lee... Easily Man of the Match

Junior Mendes. Guilty of spurning at least two good chances, plus two cracking ones, Mendes cut a frustrated figure. He can easily be blamed, had he taken one Notts would have won. He was lively however, and kept at his task. 6


Lawrie Dudfield (for Parkinson, ‘74) Came on with Notts leading 3-1, Dudfield was set to enjoy himself. His spell, though not through his own fault, coincided with Notts crumbling, so he had little impact. 5

Dan Martin (for Ross, ‘84) Perhaps the wrong change for Steve Thompson to make, Martin had no time to find his feet when Notts were on the back foot. 5
