Nick Lewis (CM) - best player on the pitch and that's saying something given the quality on show. Superb example at how to play the defensive midfield position. More impressive is that this was his first game for a month because of a calf injury
David Dinkin (CF) - may not have scored the goals he would have liked the last few weeks but his effort and work-rate were a credit to the team. Didn't stop running all morning and also held the ball up and brought others into play expertly
Alex Bloch (FB) - the model of consistency, I think I said recently he's the best full-back in the league and every week I see him play further supports that theory. Handled the threat from Kestenbaum expertly
Justin Spiro (CB) - such a superb reader of the game, was excellent again today against Hendon and should be delighted with his mornings work


Mark Wayne (RB) - best player on the park and at 32 still showing the youngsters how to do it
Ophir Lethbridge (GK) - played his first ever game in goal today as we didn't have a keeper and he was immense


Ben Sollosi (CM) - commanding performance and marked it with goal of the game curling a peach of a shot into the corner from the edge of the box


Ben Rosenthal (GK) - made a brilliant crucial save to keep the game at 0-1 and started the counter for our last-ditch winner with a pinpoint clearance to Harrison Midda in the dying seconds


Marc Woolfe (CM) - having missed a month of football he turned the game on its head with some sublime football and having a hand in Raiders' goals. He showed the Raiders faithful exactly what he brings to the side with a great display
Alex Goodman (CM) - scored another to add to an impressive season. Looked like he'd been studying clips of Aaron Ramsey
Charles Braunstein (CB) - a goal and another impressive defensive display
Adam Leveson (CB) - another solid performance from Raiders' centre back, striking up a really impressive partnership with Braunstein


Zak McLeod (LW) - some fantastic goals in a five-goal haul
Elliot Espinoza (CM) - four goals against Fortune
Danny Sherman (S) - yet again leading the line and with 9 or 10 of the assists for today's goals
Adam Waters (M) - cutting in from all angles and scoring two great goals with pace in a terrific display from the wing
Josh Flax (M) - ran for 90 minutes winning the ball and creating openings all over the pitch


Alex Lewis (LB) - won every single battle and set the bar for the teams performance
Benjy Israel (CB) - won all his individual battles and commanded the defence very well
Sam Cramer (CB) - a right-back by trade, but his CB performances in the last two weeks have been excellent, not putting a foot wrong
Jamie Kutner (RB) - left-back by trade, won every battle, lots of passion and attacked well
