Player Ratings vs Atlanta United 2


Pickens – 8.0: Wasn’t called on too often, but made five saves and controlled the back line well.

Kimura – 7.5: Not tested an awful lot defensively, but strong going forward and calm in possession.

Woodberry – 8.0: A pretty calm night for the center back. Completed 88 percent of his passes and dealt with Atlanta’s attackers pretty comfortably. Really calm under pressure.

Doyle – 7.5: Not tested defensively as often as Woodberry, handled himself well.

Davis – 8.0: Got really involved in the attack on the left flank, creating three chances and providing strong service into the box. Tracked back diligently.

Winn – 9.0: MOTM. Scored a goal and assisted another. Took his goal really, really well, beating three defenders before finishing from just outside the box. Completed 91 percent of his passes (100 percent in Atlanta’s half) and consistently took on his defenders. He looks back on form, and it couldn’t come at a better time. Replaced by Jome after 62 minutes

Reed – 8.0: Controlled the tempo for Nashville. Had a goal disallowed after he was judged to have pushed the keeper. Needs to shoot more when he has a clear channel, but otherwise a good night.

Akinyode – 8.5: Completed a casual 96 percent of his passes, and consistently showed up in the right place to make a well time tackle or key interception. He’s so fun to watch.

Washington – 8.0: Used his pace to create all kinds of space on the wing. Put some good balls into the box and had a great shot that went a couple inches wide in the first half. Came off for LaGrassa after 72 minutes.

Allen – 8.5: Opened the scoring for Nashville in the 19th minute, tapping in a Winn cross into an empty net. Had an obvious call for a penalty denied, and had a shot that looked like it crossed the line, but wasn’t given as a goal. A good night for him and hopefully a return to form.

Moloto – 9.0: Worked hard all night, and was dangerous all night. Assisted Winn for his goal, and scored in the 84th minute to put the game away with a really well taken shot from outside the box.


SUBS

Jome – 7.0: Came on for Winn after 62 minutes and had a pretty quiet evening. Didn’t do anything wrong, though.

LaGrassa – 7.0: Replaced Washington with 18 minutes to go. Played a more central role and helped close the game out.

Mensah – 7.5: Replaced Allen after 77 minutes and ran the channels really well. Got behind the defense several times, and assisted Moloto for Nashville’s third goal. A good cameo.


MANAGER

Gary Smith – 8.0: Set out a strong lineup against a struggling Atlanta side and it played out well. All the changes he made were positive, and it was a needed win going into a tough match against FC Cincinnati.
