Lathaniel Rowe-Turner: 6.5 – Not as dominant as he could have been but timed his tackles superbly.

Janos Kovacs: 7 – Booking left him exposed but the giant Hungarian put in a powerful aerial performance.

Alex Lawless: 7 – Tenacious hustler displayed a good range of passing before being stretchered off with his leg in a splint – fingers crossed he’s OK.

Jon Shaw: 7 – Much more involved and took his goal like a seasoned pro.

Jake Howells: 7 – Looked better when pushed forward from full-back into midfield.

Stuart Fleetwood: 6.5 – Slightly on the periphery, direct and quick to win a penalty though, but wasted that chance.

Arnaud Mendy: 7 – Promising debut from the new signing, mixing a physical presence in the middle with catalogue-full range of passing.

JJ O’Donnell: 6 – Bundle of energy but was bullied out of proceedings by Cambridge’s midfield.

Ronnie Henry: 8 – Captain’s best performance yet as he made a number of crucial interventions.

Andre Gray: 8 – Electric striker was unplayable at times as he tore the U’s defence to shreds, netted Town’s first and created the second.

Matt Robinson (sub): 7 – Injury gave the youngster his chance and he took it with an assured and battling display in the middle.

Dean Beckwith (sub): 6 – Shored up the defence and didn’t put a foot wrong.

Jake Robinson (sub): 5 – No real time to make an impact.
