Vital Latics member russialatic gives us his player ratings from the FA cup 5th round win at Huddersfield, without further ado, over to you russia:

Joel Robles – 7 good distribution, good save, no chance on goal.
Ronnie Stam – 5 didn’t have much pressure on him. Passed to their centre forward when under minimal pressure.
Maynor Figueroa – 8 strong performance. Great distribution. Some great challenges/interceptions. Possibly could have done better for goal.
Roman Golobart – 8 solid throughout and some very good distribution. Star in the making.
Paul Scharner – 8 very strong, pretty well faultless.
James McArthur – 9 awesome performance. At the heart of everything and a great goal
Fraser Fyvie – 8 proved anyone who doubts his potential wrong. Busy yet precise in possession.
Jordi Gomez – 8 provided that cutting edge
Roger Espinoza – 7 decent, busy, but not quite as outstanding as some of the others
Callum McManaman – 9 excellent wide left. Our best player for 60 minutes until moved to wide right – a bit of a strange move by Bob, but maybe to try him there with a view to the first team playing alongside Maloney
Arouna Kon̩ Р8 very quiet for the first 30 minutes. Needed that game because he grew into the game and took his chances.
