How they rated:

Stourbridge 1, Farsley Celtic 2

Beasley: Should have done better with Farsley's opener but did pull off a fine save from Cartman before the second. Has done okay since his introduction but is light on experience. 6.

Christophorou: The full back had a good game for the Glassboys. Made some vital interceptions and one fine block in the first half. 7.

Westlake: Comfortable as ever with the ball at his feet and defended okay at times, though no one in the back line covered themselves in glory for the second. 6.

McCone: The skipper did well. Won some big headers and carried the ball out neatly when required. 6.

Pierpoint: Another who did okay and is sure to be a voice demanding more from those in front of him. Will be disappointed with Celtic's second but was Unlucky to have a strike ruled out in the second half. 6.

Shearer: Another mixed showing from the attacker who does look a little out of place on the left. Always at his best when running at the back line but drifted in and out of the game to often. 6.

Tonks: Worked hard to get his team pushing in the right direction but you could tell it was another frustrating afternoon for the midfielder as his side couldn't find a way through. Snapped into the tackles in typical fashion. 6.5.

Broadhurst: A fault when giving the ball away in the build up the Farsley's opener but probably carried the Glassboys' main threat in the second half. Got into good positions in the box but was denied by McKibbin. 7.

Benbow: Scored one but missed the chance to level for a second time from the penalty spot. Fired over from a free kick in a good position as he failed to add to his tally. 6.5.

Anderson: A better player when central but again struggled to have an impact on the game. 5.5.

Gater: Capable of being Stour's most creative outlet but another who couldn't influence things in the final third when most needed. Stour struggled to get him on the ball in the areas he can hurt teams as the game passed him by. 5.5.


Lait: Had a good impact from the bench. Ran at the defence and create two late efforts. Fans will be hoping a start is nearing for the winger. 7.

Antonio: Late change for Christophorou as Stour looked for a late reply. One moment of good footwork in the box but time ran out. 6.

Unused subs: Hall, Cooke, Evans.
