Boston United were held to a goalless draw at Leamington. How did the players rate.

Lewis King - 8 (out of 10)

Made a vital block with his body to deny Nathan Hicks in the first half and was also in the right place at the right time to prevent Lee Chiltern’s drive finding the net. His best stop came late on to deny Danny Newton. Struggled with some sliced clearances in the windy conditions.

Zak Mills - 7

Bossed the right flank. Defending strongly and pushing forward at every opportunity. Also caused early panic with his long throws.

Rene Steer - 7

A very solid showing from Steer who helped the Pilgrims to another clean sheet. Bombed up and down the left and - as United pushed for a late winner - reinvented himself in a free role.

Jay Dowie - 8 STAR MAN

Was well up for the physical battle and excelled in midfield. Even managed to outjump Leamington’s giant defender Liam Daly to make an important headed clearance.

Scott Garner - 8

He’s here, he’s there. Garner again operated as part-defender, part-target man. And he did well in both roles.

Carl Piergianni - 7

Another clean sheet for the centre back. Although he looked tired at the end he gave everything. Came within a whisker of scoring with two powerful headers.

Junior Konadu - 6

The slick passing playmaker was his usual casual self. Made some uncharacteristic loose passes early on but soon corrected himself.

Ben Milnes - 8

Hustled and bustled in midfield. After scoring twice from the bench last week Milnes thought he deserved a start. His wish was granted and he more than justified his inclusion.

Ricky Miller - 8

Did everything but score. Miller was a nuisance all afternoon, creating chances but unable to beat Tony Breeden.

Spencer Weir-Daley - 6

It just wasn’t the forward’s day. Hovered dangerously around the Brakes’ penalty area, but his through balls and strikes just wouldn’t come off.

Jamie McGhee - 7

The most attacking point of that diamond, and McGhee wasn’t afraid to push on. Full of high-energy running and tested Breeden with some powerful strikes.

SUBSTITUTES:

Stefan Galinski (for McGhee 63) - 7

Allowed to Garner move up top. But he slipped comfortably into the back line, never looking troubled.

Ian Ross (for Konadu 63) - 6

Threatened on with some good deliveries. Brought a calm head to proceedings.

Ben Fairclough (for Milnes 85) - 6

A late arrival who conjured up a strike on goal.

Not used: Indy Aujla, Andy Hewitt.
