Star Player

Danny Higginbotham fully deserved the sponsors' man of the match award. His first match as full captain showed that he has the authority manner some said Michael Duberry lacked.

Lee Hendrie, after a lacklustre first half and his first start since his first loan period ended in the New Year, improved significantly in the second half and was unlikely not to get his name on the score sheet.
