2. Craig Baxter - 8
Rolled back the years in the first 45 minutes. His link up with Josh Gillies was a real threat. Did an important job at left back in last 15 minutes

3. Blair Adams - 7
Bombed down the left in the first half. Surprisingly withdrawn with 15 minutes left, didn't appear to be injured.

4. Jon Shaw - 8
Composed in the centre of defence. Shields looked rattled after he went off injured with what appeared to be a hamstring strain.
