Alex McCarthy: 6.5
Competent in all handling, distribution the worst all season.
Chris Gunter : 6
A threat going forward, overrun in the later stages.
Uncomfortable night, ok defensively but was poor with the ball.
Alex Pearce: 5
Dominant in the air, given a hard time by Scotland and O'Grady who found shots easy to come by.
As Pearce but as captain should shoulder the burden of responsibility to push the back line up. Should have scored.
Chris Baird : 4
Anonymous, in the team to win the ball, didn't do it adequately enough. On this showing needs to play in a midfield five.
Danny Guthrie: 6.5
Good on the ball when presented with it, otherwise anonymous. Defensively sound in the diamond.
Our only threat in the first half, played well when at the point of the diamond second.
Hal Robson-Kanu: 6
Flattered to deceive again, lack of threat going forward but his strike, on reflection, was a peach.
Lost everything in the air against Ramage, should maybe have been sent off in injury time.
Second half movement was sometimes excellent but should have scored. Poor finishing from him when presented with with chances to seal the win.
Jobi McAnuff: 5
Fairly anonymous and rusty, unable to impact attacking proceedings but defensively good down the left.
Hope Akpan: 2
Hope-less. Tracking poor, positionally atrocious, his worst performance in a Reading shirt.
Billy Sharp: 5
No real effect on the game in his cameo appearance.
