Ollie Westbury's Shrewsbury ratings v Derby: One stand out in impressive draw

Ollie Westbury rates the Shrewsbury Town players after they picked up a 1-1 draw at Derby County.


Marko Marosi 7

Made a wonderful save in the second half from a free-kick to keep it at 1-0, which ultimately helped Shrews get a point at Derby.

Morgan Feeney 7

Had a tough day against Cambridge, but he bounced back from that at Pride Park looking assured at right-back.

Chey Dunkley 7

He would be most pleased with the way he and his fellow defenders kept the Rams at bay, headed lots of balls away and defended well.

Aaron Pierre 7

His first Town goal for more than three years, and what an important it was too. He played well alongside Dunkley in the heart of defence.

Mal Benning 8

Pierre gets the credit for the goal, but it was all down to the work Benning put in on the left side. He has been brilliant of late.

Carl Winchester 7

So much energy in midfield. It was a good display from the former Sunderland man, who has done well since Hurst arrived.

Jack Hinchy 7

A first Town start, and he looked comfortable in midfield. Looks as if he is going to play an important part in the weeks and games to come.

Tom Bayliss 6

Scored in this game last season, and he is still finding his feet since returning from injury.

Jordan Shipley 7

Offers such an outlet down the left side. He was a real threat in the first half, and they missed him when he went off.

Tunmise Sobowale 7

Was not in the squad last week, but he was terrific on the right in the first half. Beat his man consistently and put balls in the box.

Dan Udoh 7

Was a presence up front and made life difficult for those Derby defenders who were marking him. Never stopped running.
