Swindon Town 3 Shrewsbury 0 - End of season player ratings

The curtain came down on the 2015/16 League One season at the County Ground today, as Swindon Town played out an impressive 3-0 victory in front of 8,000 spectators on a glorious May Sunday. Total Sport's Danny Gallagher was watching from the press box to deliver his final player ratings.

Will Henry - The young stopper was again called upon by Luke Williams and once more immediately impressed. Following his penalty-saving debut, Henry had a solid afternoon against the Shrews which rightly saw him scoop Man of the Match. A quite incredible one-on-one reflex save to deny Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro a certain goal typified Henry's afternoon. 8/10

Jordan Turnbull - Got stuck in at plenty of opportunties and was never truly threatened by the Shrews' front line. Bombed forward when possible and generally had a decent final game of the campaign. 6/10.

Nathan Thompson - Forever leading by example and again putt in a solid shift against the Shrews. Thompson put himself about everywhere, and was responsible for winning Town's penalty. Opposition players look threatened when the defender runs at them, testament to Thompson's all round game play and versatility. Town need him to stay fit for the duration of next season. 7/10.

Jamie Sendles-White - Held court at the centre of defence in the absence of Rossi-Branco. Didn't do anything to catch the eye, but didn't play poorly either. A quiet end to the season for JSW, but one he can be happy with. 6/10.

James Brophy - Was in a lively mood all afternoon and never shied away from taking on his man. His superb, deft footwork was responsible for setting up Young's goal in the second half. 8/10.

Yaser Kasim - Still on the comeback from injury, Kasim put in a solid display in what could be his final ever game at the County Ground in a Robins shirt. Went quiet in patches, but showed flashes of his ability with neat turns and commanding ball control. 7/10

Michael Doughty - The man all Town fans will be saddened to see leave. Doughty put his body on the line all afternoon, slamming into challenges and looking to create where possible. Although short, his stint in Wiltshire has been a successful one. 7/10

Ellis Iandolo - Plenty of trickery and little flicks. With more game time Iandolo begins to look more and more comfortable in the Town midfield. Was unlucky to see his fizzing effort strike the post in the second half. 7/10

Anton Rodgers - The man who usually bears the brunt of Town fans' dissatisfaction, Rodgers had a quiet but relatively faultless afternoon. Eyed a few passes which were out of his range, but looked to create when possible, particularly via balls out wide, threaded into the channel. 6/10.

Jon Obika - A powerful performance by Town's target man. Obika served hearty portions of his brawn to the Shrews defence all afternoon, ensuring to keep himself a constant threat. 7/10.

Nicky Ajose - Two more goals for Ajose to add to the season's tally, finishing narrowly second behind Wigan's William Grigg. A hat-trick would have seen Ajose finish the season level with Grigg on 25, which shows the calibre of the Town striker. It was another strong performance from the energetic striker, who won't be short of offers in the summer. 8/10.

 

Substitutions 

Jordan Young - Came on midway through the second half for his home debut, and seized the opportunity with both hands. Young never once looked out of place in the Robins' midfield, asking for the ball and looking to give-and-go to make things happen. Scored his first goal for the club by drilling in an effort in front of the Town End. One to watch next season. 8/10

Jake Evans - Another town youngster making his home debut, Evans looked assured after coming on to replace Sendles-White, and didn't shy away from the occasion. Deserves credit for getting stuck in during the time he had on the pitch. 7/10
