Adam Bartlett 7 – made some good reaction saves when his goal was peppered for spells

Kallum Griffiths 8 – repeatedly played Langstaff in during early stages and, most significantly, for the goal

Joe Tait 8 – made a solid return after injury and never looked flustered by Blyth pressure

Tom Allan 7 – a little tentative to start with, but decision-making became better as game progressed

Sean Newton 7 – booking had him walking a tightrope with the trick Dale, but stuck to task despite penalty being saved too

Russ Penn 9 – excellent from start to finish, intercepting, blocking and tackling, as well as driving team forward when opportunity arose

Josh Law 7 – long and short passing was accurate, but industry of others was needed as he was sacrificed just before the hour

Simon Heslop 7 – operated a little further forward and got through a lot of unselfish work closing down full-backs

Alex Harris 7 – very reliable on the ball and rarely lost possession, but should have scored one-on-one chance

Macaulay Langstaff 8 – his early movement really troubled Blyth’s back-line and teed up Burrow’s goal

Jordan Burrow 8 – displayed good hunger to get across his man and convert Langstaff’s cross, whilst also going close a couple more times
