The game ended 2-3.
Game of 2 halves as others have said with town much more like it in the second half. However despite Donny having good possesion and moving the ball well they rarely troubled us and Macca did not have a save to make. This was due to everyone doing their defending jobs, harrying and getting a foot in together with Donny's lack of a cutting edge up front.

Mckeon: Did not have much to do, maybe was caught cold by the hard low cross for the first goal. Got close to saving the second penalty.
Hatton: Not a good night for Sam. Conceding both penalties knocked his confidence. Recovered in second half and linked well with Colbeck
Miller and Pearson: Not much got past them and they looked quite comfortable on the ball
Thomas: Had a tough first half without much help, he was up against a winger and an overlapping fullback. Stuck to his task, not much got past him. More of an attacking threat in the second half.
Disley: worked hard to close people down but did not get on the ball much
Niven: Played well, broke up play, passed it simple and won a good few arial battles in midfield. Good signing.
Artus: Put himself about but could not get his passing game going as a lot of the work tonight was defensive.
Thanoj: looks physically stronger this season, got into forward positions
Soares: Played 90 mins, high energy. Played in a several positions, midfield, wide-left and behind the striker. The best I have seen him play. He will be a threat this year in our league and when in a forward midfield role had several good efforts on goal. You can see why he scored 16 from that position before joining us.
Elding, worked hard but his quality of touch, pass and finishing was not good enough. Will struggle to make the starting line-up
Hearn: Hardly in the game and did not come out for the second half. Injury maybe?
Cook: My choice to lead the line. Good old fashioned centre forward. Good in the air a true target man. Has a go at goal whenever he can. Not too scruffy with the ball at his feet either.
Colbeck; came on a half-time and played an authodox winger role. Caused Donny defence problems. will do well when we play 442.
Southwell: Played really well for his time on the pitch a real brave terrier effort. first goal a stunning header from a cross shot from soares. Went in like a bullet. I can see him getting a good few minutes on the pitch and benefitting from training and playing with the first team.

I also would like to know who the keeper was during the pre-match shooting practice. He looked handy. He was not our junior keeper.
