Blackburn v Reading FC Squad Selector: The Results

New, comment

Earlier this week we trialled a new feature that allows you to pick your preferred Reading 18 for our game with Blackburn and thankfully you took part in droves. Here's a summary of the results

Jamie McDonald

Unsurprisingly you voted overwhelmingly for Adam Federici to be your starting goalkeeper with 96% of the votes cast. Likewise Mikkel Andersen was almost a unanimous deputy on 98%.

Elsewhere and the current back-four all got a thumbs up from at least 85% of you, though 21% did want Jake Cooper and a further 15% thought that Stephen Kelly deserved a recall to the side.

Midfield wise and only 2 out of 160 voters felt Oliver Norwood should be left out of the starting lineup, with 84% backing Hope Akpan to play alongside him. Of the other viable options in the middle, Aaron Kuhl got 14% with Jake Taylor on 24% and Ryan Edwards only taking 4% of the votes cast.

Further forward and the majority of you wanted Hal Robson-Kanu to be dropped, with the Welsh International getting into less than a quarter of your teams. Nick Blackman was the most popular replacement on 69% and Jamie Mackie was also selected in the vast majority of sides.

Up front and Glenn Murray was in nearly every team, while Simon Cox also got a huge amount of backing to play alongside/just behind the Palace loanee.

Bench wise and Pavel Pogrebnyak was the most popular choice for the bench, with few other real surprises.

So based on the votes cast here's your team for Saturday's game at Ewood Park.

SUBSTITUTES:  Andersen, Kelly, Cooper, Kuhl, Taylor, Robson-Kanu, Pogrebnyak

Thanks to all of you who voted and we'll give you your choice to vote on the Rotherham game from Sunday morning.
