Ratings from last night’s win against Dunfermline:
JAK ALNWICK – 7
Really had very little to do. Passed the ball well from the back, didn’t have a save to make. He must have enjoyed the view of the game.
JAMES TAVERNIER – 9
An excellent performance. His goal was a great finish, and he was unlucky not to score a couple more. Won the ball well in midfield through pressing the game all night, and linked up excellently with Candeias
FABIO CARDOSO – 8
Looked a few levels above what he was playing against. Read the game well, never wasted a pass, dominated on the ground. He’ll be a fan favourite through both performances and passion.
BRUNO ALVES – 9
Scored a great free kick. His passing was pretty good as well, as he’s quick to see the run from the striker or wide player. Seems to somehow win aerial duels by chesting a ball down rather than having to head it, which is almost taking the p*ss.
LEE HODSON – 7
Unlucky not to finish with an assist, but he was solid enough on the night. Most of the good attacking play came down the right hand side though.

DANIEL CANDEIAS – 9
If the word “manlove” is trending on Twitter, it’s because of this guy. Never stopped running yet again. In a game where any player could have been excused for taking it easy after the quick start, he just kept going, constantly trying to run in behind and cause issues. His freekick was a cracker as well.
JORDAN ROSSITER – 7
Had some loose passes in the first half, but overall played well. It’s easy to forget that this was his first 90 minutes in a good while at first team level, so some lapses could be expected.
GRAHAM DORRANS – 8
Drove us forward constantly from midfield. He has both the ability and the aggression that you want from a midfielder, and it showed last night again.
JOSH WINDASS – 7
Not as effective as his last couple of matches. Had some great touches, though, and you could see that Dunfermline were scared of his pace. As with Hodson, he was somewhat hampered by the effectiveness of our other flank going forward. I suspect he missed Lee Wallace.
KENNY MILLER – 9
Scored the opener, directly assisted two goals, won the free kick for our fifth. Another good performance from the man so many fans seem to want dropped for no other reason than his age.
ALFREDO MORELOS – 9
Great workrate and passion, added to two smart finishes. He won the free kick Alves scored from, and was unlucky not to get his hat-trick. A very encouraging performance which leaves Caixinha with a big decision for Saturday.
DANNY WILSON – 6
Had very little to do once he replaced Alves.
NIKO KRANJCAR – 6
Was involved in the build up for the final goal. Could be accused of taking one touch too many quite often though.
JASON HOLT – 6
Determined and energetic. Tried to keep us driving forward.
