Macclesfield Player Ratings

By: Jake Olley
Date: 30/04/2006

THE Mariners needed to win to ensure their promotion place is still in their own hands, but failed, only managing a 1-1 draw at Macclesfield. Jake Olley gives his views of the players' perfomances.

Steve Mildenhall - Mildy pulled off one decent save today from a close downward header from Richardson which looked destined for goal. Despite this save he will be very disappointed with his eagerness to get to one side of the goal which allowed Richardson to place the ball past him and leave Steve stranded. This was one of three times he was beaten as ex-Mariner Paul Harsley hit the post with a peach of a free kick and as the ball was played from the left Bullock and Richardson slipped to save the Mariners. Not the best. 5.5

Gary Cohen - Out of position again for most of the game but still gave his all and made a number of quality tackles. His passion and utility is a big presence in the side and he really looks as if he cares. Though he still didn't have his best game he tried. 6

Gary Croft - Received much unneeded stick from 'glory' supporters behind the goal which Gary shrugged off with I think a claim of 'Could you do better?'. Speaking of his performance, it was okay but did give the ball away a bit too easyily at times and didn't have enough support again in front of him which forced him to hit long on numerous occasions. Despite this he looked a threat on the left side and even nutmegged Macclesfield's left back. An okay display but not as good as Newey. 6

Rob Jones - Came off after around twenty minutes and immediately Town looked worse defensively. In his twenty minutes he commanded and looked solid. Something I have noticed as well is that he has bags of confidence and always wants and looks like he'll win the ball which is the opposite to Futcher who looks down on confidence and from my sources is known as very much a confidence player. Not Time N/A

Justin Whittle - Could be a very decent defender if he just didn't panic and hoof the ball all the time. Though I do feel him and Jones complement each other well and show a good understanding of who's around them. A okay display again from Justin but please don't just HOOF it. 6

Marc Goodfellow - Had no real impact on the game and tried to be too flash and attack minded which left Croft exposed. This performance again reminded me of Pinault last year which I don't know is a good or bad thing. Needs to have more of a impact. 6

Andy Parkinson - I am not a fan of Parkinson but still believe today he was unfairly criticised. His performance was no worse to the one put in by Goodfellow and again he was used as a scapegoat and abused by 'Town fans' behind the goal which is not good to see. His performance wasn't good but to those fans who booed him ask yourselves 'Was his performance worse than other members of the team?'. 6

Paul Bolland - Commitment, passion, hunger to win and someone who cares about Grimsby Town are all statements to sum up Bolly's performance today and why he has been my 'player of the season'. He never gave up and chased every ball as much as he possibly could. As well as this he battled on despite what looked a painful back injury which impressed me very much. A top display. 8 

Curtis Woodhouse - Not his best display today and looked slightly notexistent in the middle of the park where Bolland shone. He did very little and wasted the ball a bit to much for my liking. Not the best but at least he allowed the to Town fans entertain themselves by singing 'Rocky, Rocky, Rocky!' every time he got the ball.6

Gary Jones - Not involved much despite scoring the goal and looked poor after Reddy came off. He still went up for every ball which is not easy when you're playing up against Danny Swailes. Still he scored a very tidy goal after the ball was played from the left only for Gary to head home the ball which took a eternity to go in. A okay display made good by scoring. 7

Michael Reddy - He is not 100% fit! When he is in this state he looks nothing more than average as the game wears on. Despite this he looked threatening in the first half an hour but then his fitness took its toll as he slowly petered out of the game. A not good but bad display as Michael was fed on half chances. 6

Subs:

Ben Futcher - Looked down on confidence but why he was criticised for being safe not sorry was stupid and probably affected the rest of his game. 5

Junior Mendes - Looked threatening and definitely could be a asset in League Two (if we stay down). 6

Ciaran Toner - No impact. N/A
