Big match verdict:
Kevin Miller: Had only one save to make but his presence behind the back four is a major plus in big games like this.
Huw Morgan: Mr Versatile, one of the unsung heroes of the squad. Didn't put a foot wrong at right back.
Luke Rundle: In great form at the moment. Defended well and provided a pacy outlet on the left, even when everybody else was shattered. Man of Match.

Tom Chambers: Does he ever put a foot, or a head, wrong? Another superb central defender's contribution.
Steve Simmonds: Ditto the Tom Chambers summary.
Olly Brokenshire: The pudding of a pitch didn't help his silky passing game; but he grew stronger in the last 20 minutes.
Steve Colwell: Another whose style didn't flourish in the muddy midfield but worked his socks off and scored the vital second goal.
Neil Slateford: Provided pace along the right as well as working hard, with some crucial challenges. Was heavily involved in the move for Hobbs' opening goal.
Glynn Hobbs: Made an excellent start and scored after nine minutes. A handful throughout, led the line very well.
Chris Luxton: Didn't get a goal but worked hard for the cause and played a big part in the lead up to the second goal.
Craig Swiggs: Perhaps a surprise starter in some people's eyes but he has been in excellent form and justified his place with hard work on and off the ball.
Adam Carter: Came on for the injured Luxton and contributed a remarkable last 20 minutes, hitting the bar, being denied by a super save, and then scoring the all-important third goal. Responded in the right way to being left out of the starting line-up.
Sam Matthews: Another who would have been disappointed not to start, but a great player to bring on when legs got weary. He was fresh at a time when Ashington's defenders were running on empty.
Shane Krac: People wondered why he was left out. It was simply a selection choice by Darren Gilbert. But another excellent player to bring on, and he provided fresh impetus late on.
Darren Gilbert: His team selection raised a few eyebrows and upset one or two of his big reputation players. But he got it spot on, and used a strong subs bench to good effect.
Andrew Bennett: The Hatherleigh official had an excellent game. Suffered no messing from the players, and earned their respect.
Paul Willis: Worked six hours a day on the Priory Park pitch during the week leading up to the match. And despite Friday's horrendous 12 hours of relentless rain, he produced a playable surface.
