Boston United 5 Workington 3: Ratings

Boston United beat Workington 5-3, but how did the players rate?

Lewis King - 7 (out of 10)

A strange game for King. Made three very vital reaction saves to deny the Reds, but suffered afew moments of miscommunication with his defence.

Conor Marshall - 6

The full back covered the right hand side well and never shirked a challenge.

Rene Steer - 7

Made a good block on the line during a goalmouth scramble and did well to chase down some stray passes across goal from his teammates.

Indy Aujla - 5

One to forget. The game had hardly even started before he was limping off injured.

Scott Garner - 7

Garner is revelling in his role up front. Not afraid to put himself about, and neatly slipped in Miller for goal number two.

Carl Piergianni - 6

The defender didn’t have his best day at the back. His dependable understanding with Galinski just didn’t work close to its best tonight. Some rushed clearances caused panic, but few can challenge his aerial dominance.

Ian Ross - 6

Posed a constant threat with his dead balls and also looked to ask some questions with his long-range efforts.

Ben Milnes - 7

How close? Milnes saw a superb 20 yard curler twist agonisingly wide of the target. Ran his socks off in a makeshift central midfield.

Ricky Miller - 9 STAR MAN

Well, what can you say about Miller? Scored three and won a penalty! Superb stuff from the striker.

Marc Newsham -6

Calmly blasted home his 103rd goal for the club from the penalty spot, and also saw a couple of threatening headers fly off target.

Stefan Galinski - 6

Along with Piergianni, the centre back didn’t have his finest hour. But he put in some important tackles. The defence may have been frustrating, but they’ve helped the club win six points this week, so it’s not all bad.

SUBSTITUTES:

Ryan Semple (for Aujla 8) - 7

Involved earlier than he would have guessed and worked the flank well. Marked his return with the matchwinner.

Charley Sanders (for Miller 88) - 5

Very late introduction, but teed up Newsham nicely late on.

Not used: Ngoni Dongo, Charlie Ward, Sam Vince.
