PLAYER RATINGS: Swindon Town (2) v (1) Exeter City

SWINDON TOWN moved four points clear at the top of the League Two table yesterday after grinding out a hard-fought 2-1 home win over promotion chasers Exeter City. Total Sport Swindon's Rajan Hothi gives his Robins player ratings following the result.

GK: Steven Benda (7)

Didn't have a lot to do, but did the basics well. Couldn't have done much for the equaliser, but did well to remain alert and claim a few balls at the end. Looked assured in what was a frantic last few minutes.

RB: Paul Caddis (8)

Was given the Man of the Match award, and the Scotsman did well. Had a lapse in communication with Baudry for the equaliser, but look threatening going forward and was solid defensively. 

CB: Mathieu Baudry (7)

Despite a shaky start at SN1, Baudry has fast become one of Town's most integral members of the squad, and the Frenchman endured a decent enough afternoon today. Was probably at fault for Exeter's goal, and had a few shaky moments on the ball, but did well. 

CB: Rarmani Edmonds-Green (6)

The youngster put in an okay showing but struggled towards the end with a few poor passes putting Town under pressure. 

LB: Rob Hunt (6)

Wasn't his greatest game, but Hunt didn't do too much wrong. Was caught out of position on a couple of occasions, but thankfully wasn't punished. 

CM: Michael Doughty (7.5)

On his day, Doughty is one of the best midfielders in the division and he looked good in parts today. His corner led to the opener, but after picking up a booking he did look like a red card waiting to happen at times. Played some nice passes, and put in a strong performance.

CM: Anthony Grant (8)

As always, Grant put in a fantastic performance in the middle of the park. Didn't shy away from a tackle and pushed Town forwards. Signing Grant on a permanent deal in January was possibly the most underrated bit of business Swindon done all window.

RW: Jerry Yates (6.5)

An average performance from Yates who could've put Town 2-0 up, but didn't make contact with Rob Hunt's cross. Didn't stop running, but it wasn't quite his day.

AM: Diallang Jaiyesimi (8)

Since coming back into the side over the festive period, Jaiyesimi has looked a constant threat in this Swindon team. Defenders don't know how to deal with his tricky runs and skills, and he looks to be a real talent, with Wellens believing he can make it in the Premier League. 

Another positive showing from the Norwich-loanee saw him cause havoc amongst the Exeter back-line. Grabbed an assist for the second goal with a perfect delivery into Hope.

LW: Hallam Hope (7.5)

Hope put Swindon ahead on the stroke of half-time with a close-range header meaning he has scored twice in two appearances at the County Ground for Town. Looked a threat, but was tiring before being subbed off for Kaiyne Woolery. 

ST: Eoin Doyle (7)

Was initially credited with the first goal, but it was eventually decided that it was an own-goal. Looked threatening on a few breaks, and had an effort well-saved by Ward soon after the opener. Like Yates, it wasn't to be his day in front of goal and was substituted for Admiral Muskwe late on. 

SUBSTITUTIONS:

Kaiyne Woolery (6)

Came on to exploit the tired Exeter legs, but didn't get many chances to do so. 

Admiral Muskwe (N/A)

Replaced Doyle, but was only on the pitch for a few minutes as Town looked to close the game out.
