Newcastle Player Ratings

Huddersfield Town yesterday succumbed to a 1-0 defeat away at Newcastle United in the Premier League. As is customary we bring you our post-match player ratings, with a quick reminder that we are not The Examiner. A score of 5 is awarded for an average performance unlike a 7 in The Examiner, enjoy!


Jonas Lossl: 4/10


The Danish 'keeper was left exposed on several occasions by his defence, making good saves when called upon. However he was at fault for Newcastle's only goal of the game.


Tommy Smith: 4/10


On his return to the side the captain looked calm and assured in fits and starts, but poor marking and communication on his behalf played a large part in Newcastle's goal.


Zanka: 5/10


Was unlucky not to find the back of the net with his bullet header from a corner in the second-half. Defensively he was no great shakes but none of his errors proved costly for the Terriers.


Christopher Schindler: 5/10


The German barely put a foot wrong in the game but perhaps wasn't as forthcoming as he has been in recent weeks.


Terence Kongolo: 6/10


We think we have a new favourite defender here at TerrierBlog. Kongolo is full-throttle all of the time and never looks beaten.


Aaron Mooy: 6/10


It's been a tough few weeks for the Australian and although his passing wasn't up to his usual standards yesterday his defensive work was good.


Jonathan Hogg: 5/10


Received an elbow early in the first-half and perhaps lost his concentration after then. His positional discipline wasn't as good as it normally is.


Rajiv Van La Parra: 4/10


The tactic's employed by Wagner gave him little opportunity to shine but when he did get the chance to run with the ball his end-product was sadly lacking.


Alex Pritchard: 5/10


Effort and perseverance are things that this lad has in abundance, but his passing yesterday was very poor, which is unusual.


Elias Kachunga: 6/10


Fantastic to see him back in a Town shirt and he was full of energy and running until his game was cruelly ended by an atrocious tackle from Kenedy.


Laurent Depoitre: 7/10


The service to the big Belgian was poor to say the least, but he did his very best for the team regardless. He won several lost causes and did the best he could do in the circumstances.


Substitutes


Scott Malone: 4/10


Bizarrely was brought on when Town were chasing a goal and when the ball fell to him at the back-post he was unable to turn it in.


Collin Quaner: 6/10


We're not his biggest fans here at TerrierBlog but when he came on he was full of running, and looked a threat cutting in from the wing.


Steve Mounie: 4/10


Not sure what he contributed at all when he was introduced.


The Gaffer: 4/10


He said his plan was to frustrate Newcastle and hit them on the break, but sadly the execution was lacking.
