1. Ofir Marciano - 8
The Israeli was back between the sticks. Made an excellent early save which brought chants of support from the home fans. Followed it with a fine double save. Little to do second half.

2. Jason Naismith - 7
Greg Leigh’s forays down the left were curtailed by the defender but with Martin Boyle in front he played a more supporting role going forward.

3. Ryan Porteous - 8
The young centre-back made a number of key interventions. Showed a purpose and desire on the ball as well. Dominant.

4. Paul Hanlon - 7
Had a difficult second half. Twice he misjudged a bouncing ball which put the side in danger. Was a different player after the interval, including a perfect challenge to stop Aberdeen scoring.
