    Gerard Doherty

    Couldn't do much about the two goals, and handling was solid throughout.

  • Barry Molloy

    2.00

    Barry Molloy

    Lost the midfield battle to Ndo and Conneely, and was wasteful with the ball on too many occasions.

  • Shane McEleney

    2.00

    Shane McEleney

    Struggled with the wind against him in the second half, and could have done better for North's goal.

  • Ruaidhri Higgins

    Ruaidhri Higgins

    His passing range was there for all to see - but wasn't involved enough.

    Patrick McEleney

    Anonymous apart from a minute when his penalty was saved and thwarted moments later by Rogers.

  • Ryan McBride

    3.00

    Ryan McBride

    Won everything in the air and potential injury is a big worry for Declan Devine.

  • Paddy Kavanagh

    2.50

    Paddy Kavanagh

    Had a very quiet first half, but was much improved in the second and put in some neat crosses.

  • Simon Madden

    4.00

    Simon Madden

    Outstanding all-round performance from the full-back. Brilliant in defence and even better in attack. Desperately unlucky to finish on the losing side.

  • Eoghan Osborne

    0
    2.50

    Eoghan Osborne

    0
    2.50

    David McDaid

    Worked his socks off to little avail, but missed a very good chance in the first half.

    2.50

    Iarfhlaith Davoren

    0
    2.50

  • Evan McMillan

    0
    3.00

    Evan McMillan

    0
    3.00

    David Cawley

    Was often too deep in the first half, but was much more involved thereafter and got the vital opener.

  • Raffaele Cretaro
    1
    0
    2.50

    Raffaele Cretaro

    Missed a great chance just before Cawley's opener, and switching flanks with Djilali didn't do much for him.

  • Joseph Cyrille Ndo

    2.50

    Joseph Cyrille Ndo

    Lucky not to see red for handling the ball when on a caution, the Cameroonian had a relatively quiet evening.
