He received an average rating of 3.89 following the 2-1 defeat away at Crewe Alexandra in League Two last season. Some of the comments can be found below:

Woodis: “3 – totally agree, got worse as the game wore on. Very poor, I last saw him at Cheltenham last season and he’s just as bad. Decision making was guesswork.”

Franky73: “Terrible decision making, but then again had Danny made subs Rhead and Gordon with half hour to go we would have beaten both Crewe and the referee. Why do we have loan players at the club if they are not being used? Rhead and Gordon are match-winners if used properly in games.”

domski2017: “He did not appear to understand professional football and the antics of either side. On this occasion, mostly time-wasting from Crewe. He wouldn’t know the difference between a challenge and a foul unless Bostwick went through him with an ice skate. ineptitude. 3.”
