Little to do in the first half and had to be alert to keep out two close range headers in the second half – the latter an excellent reaction save.
Linked up well with midfield. Improved as the game wore on and won penalty in stoppage time.
Lucky to stay on the pitch following blatant hand-ball and cynical fouls, but defensively sound and distributed well.
Marshalled the back four brilliantly and hardly put a foot wrong all night. Positioning exemplary throughout.
Much like his captain, had a quiet opening. But improved in the second half and was instrumental in two of the goals.
Picking Patterson out for his goal and a beautiful pass to the same player later were particular highlights in a stop-start game.
Best player on the pitch, even though he was withdrawn with 20 minutes remaining. Always looking for the ball, creative, and superbly started the move that led to the opening goal.
Had a quiet opening period but began to show more when his side went in front and improved thereafter.
Tested Burdon early on and should really have scored in the second half but fired wide. Superb finish to put result beyond doubt.
Struggled at left-back initially but seemed to grow into the role. Missed a decent chance at 2-0.
Typically boisterous from the top scorer. Super finish for the opening goal and put in the cross for the second.
Made a couple of smart saves, and could do little for the goals. Unlucky not to save Griffin's penalty. Kicking a concern.
Kept his back four in check throughout and his side could have been beaten by more had it not been for the captain.
Wasted a few set pieces and was caught napping on several occasions. Not his finest 90 minutes.
Had a decent game from right-back, combined well with Kelly and put in some dangerous crosses.
Did well with the aerial threat, but struggled to contain Patterson and looked all at sea with midfielders running at him.
Did little to impress and largely forced to drop back as Shels defended in numbers.
Started brightly but progressively lost the battle in an overcrowded midfield and scored horrible own goal.
Created an excellent chance which Hughes should have scored, and found space where others seemed to fail.
Battled hard to lend support to Hughes, but never in the game when dropping deep. Blazed well over when should have done better.
Shelbourne’s best player and was their main attacking threat. Gave Thomas Crawley a torrid time.
Put himself about and drew a number of fouls. Didn’t receive the service he would have liked to be much of a goal threat. Should have done better with header.
