Following Walsall's 0-0 draw with Exeter, Liam Keen rates the players on their performance.

Wes McDonald
Wes McDonald

Liam Roberts - 7

A solid showing from the goalkeeper. He did not have much to do in terms of saves, but commanded his area well.

Cameron Norman - 7

Norman showed again why he has kept his place in the team. Reliable going forward as well as defending, the right-back is proving his worth.

Dan Scarr - 7

Scarr was dominant in the air and read the game well. The centre-back has improved steadily and looked comfortable.

James Clarke - 8

The captain put in his best performance of the season, he commanded the back line and covered his full-backs well.

George Nurse - 8

The on-loan defender has improved in his run of games. At the moment he is keeping some team-mates out of the side with his impressive performances.

Liam Kinsella - 7

Kinsella was a close call for an eight rating. He marshalled the midfield well and consistently pressed the opponents.

Stuart Sinclair - 8

The midfielder seemed fresh as he came into the side. He regularly made tackles and won the ball back well.

Rory Holden - 7

Holden played in a number of positions and looked creative throughout. He showed for the ball but just missed the final pass.

Emmanuel Osadebe - 6

In his first lead start Osadebe looked slightly off the pace. He showed glimpses of creativity but needs to do better to keep his place.

Wes McDonald - 7

Wes showed glimpses of his spark but his team-mates failed to give him the ball at times. Now he needs to put on a full 90 minute performance and show what he is capable of.

Elijah Adebayo - 7

The striker was close to an eight rating but just missed the finishing touch. He again impressed with his hold-up play and looked dangerous. Plenty more goals will come his way if he continues this form.

Substitutes

Danny Guthrie (for Sinclair, 59), Caolan Lavery (for Osadebe, 70), Alfie Bates (for Liam Kinsella, 87). Subs not used: Rose, Jules, White, Nolan.
