Last updated : 22 January 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Taylor - Sound when called upon but kicking woeful again.

Melchiot - Superb - especially first half.

- Went walk-abouts on occasions but did ok.

Cunningham - Commanding, after a shaky first ten minutes.

Upson - Ditto Cunningham and scored at last. Best game this season??

Pennant - Absolutely superb and a great goal.

Johnson - Industrious, as always.

Izzet - Tenacious. Protected his back four well.

Jarosik- Good first half, not involved much second half.

Heskey - Worked hard again but should be puting away the chances he's getting.

Sutton - Excellent home debut.


David Dunn (for Jarosik, 75) - Lively and a great last minute goal.

(for Heskey, 78) - Looks like he's getting back to full fitness.

Kilkenny (for Cunningham, 81) - Did ok.
