Produced two decent saves to deny Akinade and had little else to do.
His dip in form continues, although credit for a great battle with Waters and his unending will to get forward.
Tasked with keeping his junior partner in check and did so for the most part, while also producing his own solid performance.
Caught out too many times at left-back by the powerful Akinade, and a forgettable evening was ended before the hour.
Tough night for the youngster at centre-half where his positioning was questionable, but was much more impressive when moved to his favoured left-back.
Drifted in and out of the game but attacked as well as he has all season and was excellent when drafted in to the back four.
Didn’t show up for most of the evening, although was never truly tested.
Took his header very well for the opener, and worked his socks off. Looked tired towards the end.
Showed some wonderful pieces of skill and was brilliant all night. Another excellent performance from this bright prospect.
Again dropped deep much too early, leaving Curran ploughing a lone furrow up front, but very unlucky to see shot come back off the crossbar.
Started well but lost touch as the game wore on. What he lacked in quality he made up for in endeavour and commitment.
Could do little to stop the opener, made a number of fine saves, before Rafter's excellent finish.
Had a pretty decent first half, but held a high line much too often in the second half, ultimately leading to the second goal.
Didn't get forward as well as he could have, but had his work cut out dealing with a rampant Duffy.
Struggled to get involved and could not keep tabs on the more effective Molloy before being replaced.
Caught out for the opener but improved thereafter and was an able runner for Akinade in the first half and Waters in the second.
A quiet game all round in an attacking midfield role.
Bray’s outstanding performer – pacey, skilful, and a constant thorn in Derry's side.
Constant threat with his powerful running, but missed too many chances - five in total.
This class act rarely fails to deliver, and one has the impression that if more of Bray's chances fell to him, they would have escaped with a point.
Full array of passing on show from the game’s star midfield performer, but drifted away as the game wore on.
