Ipswich Town 2-1 Reading FC: Player Ratings

New, comment

See how we rated the individual performances during Reading's late defeat a Ipswich in Tuesday night's Championship encounter.

Ali Al-Habsi: 7

Another good display from Al-Habsi, who made several good saves and gave the Ipswich strikers a frustrating evening. Set up a very good chance with a long throw, but there was little he could do for either goal.

Chris Gunter: 7

Generally dealt well with his winger all evening, and linked up well with Robson-Kanu to create some of the side's opening chances. However, he should really have got back to help close down Luke Varney for their winner.

Anton Ferdinand: 6

A reasonably solid display, but didn't do anything that particularly stood out. Definitely doing a job for the side right now.

Jake Cooper: 7

An imperious display from the young centre-half who seems to be improving every week. Cleared pretty much everything that was thrown at him, and some decent distribution. Maybe could have done better for the winner.

Jordan Obita: 6

Defensively reasonable, but without a natural winger in front of him for the first hour he was left exposed at times. Struggled with some crossing, and generally didn't trouble Luke Chambers too much going forward.

Danny Williams: 6

Williams didn't have his greatest game to start with, but picked up a little after the goal. Ipswich did a good job on containing him.

Oliver Norwood: 5

Just one of those nights for Ollie. His distribution wasn't as good as usual, with a number of passes missing their man.

Stephen Quinn: 6

Generally unremarkable, struggling against a good Ipswich defence while playing out on the wing.

Hal Robson-Kanu: 8

A great game for Hal, who's improved massively in the last few months to become one of the club's main attacking threats. Made a number of good runs and could have created a goal if there were strikers in the box when he crossed the ball. Won the penalty which ultimately drew us level.

Matej Vydra: 6

Once again it just didn't quite work for the loan star. Made some good runs, but missed a couple of chances.

Yann Kermorgant: 5

To be honest, apart from when he went down in the opening 10 minutes I didn't realise he was playing.

Substitutes

Garath McCleary: 7

Looked lively and kept his composure to score the penalty, but showed poor decision making when through with Vydra in a 2-on-1.
