Swindon Town were left bitterly disappointed after they conceded a stoppage-time equaliser to ten-man Salford City to draw 2-2.

Ethan Ingram gave Salford an early lead, but Remeao Hutton and Charlie Austin’s penalty had Town thinking it was a job well done before Liam Humbles crashed home a heartbreaking equaliser.

So, how did the players get on as individuals at the Peninsular Stadium?

GK: Murphy Mahoney – 7

During the Ammies’ quick start to both halves, Mahoney made multiple good saves to keep Swindon in the match. But the most impressive and important part of his display was in possession. Mahoney was playing almost like another centre-back at times and it helped Swindon cut through Salford.

RCB: Udoka Godwin-Malife – 7

Salford were able to defend the middle of the pitch well, but Godwin-Malife helped Town look very dangerous out wide. He drove Swindon forward when he needed to and picked a pass when he needed to.

CB: Tom Brewitt – 6

In the first ten minutes, it looked like it could be a long afternoon for Brewitt as Matt Smith had the best of him. But he got his bearings and dealt with the giant well. He did not look in a good way when he came off the pitch, so hopefully it is nothing too serious.

LCB: Frazer Blake-Tracy – 7

Swindon were almost shifting to a back four at times in order to get Blake-Tracy more space to run into and he did it very well. He linked up with Tyrese Shade to great effect throughout.

RWB: Remeao Hutton – 7

He did well to get his first goal for the club, finally, someone set him up rather than the other way around. Hutton could well have had a few more assists in this game, he was a constant source of danger.

CM: Saidou Khan – 6

As I have said, Swindon were made to go wide a lot in this game, but Khan locked down the middle. Town were able to trap Salford in for long spells and Khan’s presence in midfield was a big part of that.

CM: George McEachran – 5

I felt McEachran was a bit quiet in this game. There were times when he was involved in keeping attacks alive, but when he is at his best, he is conducting attacks and he did not do a lot of that.

LWB: Tyrese Shade – 8

Tariq Uwakwe’s injury has opened the door for Shade, but he is charging through it. He looks far more confident at the moment; he is comfortable staying wide and coming inside and attacking his full-back in any direction. Once he figured out where Ingram was trying to attack, he shut it down.

CAM: Dan Kemp – 6

It took Kemp a little while to get going, but he played very well in the second half. When Kemp is popping up all over the field, he is at his most effective and once he started doing that, Salford struggled to cope.

ST: Charlie Austin – 7

50 goals for the club pushes him firmly into the realm of legend, but he is not relying on his legacy right now. His penalty was as emphatic as it could be and it should have been the winner, plus his link-up play was as good as ever.

ST: Jake Young – 5

He was dangerous in fits and starts, but things aren’t quite clicking for Young at this moment in time. Defences are doing everything they can to prevent him from getting in behind and so his touches are not coming as close to goal as they were, so he has to work so much harder to get the goals.

Harrison Minturn – 7

Coming on for Brewitt was always going to be tough, especially against a striker who is almost two metres tall. However, Minturn looked completely unfazed and won the duel with ease. His anticipation is such a strong asset as he never seems to mistime when he chooses to step in. He simply must start on Tuesday.

Rushian Hepburn-Murphy – 6

As ever he made an impact off the bench, but he should have had his fourth goal of the season. Becoming more consistent is the next step for a player who has proved without a doubt that he is a top player at this level.
