Boreham Wood 0-5 Reading FC: Player Ratings

McCleary had a day when he decided to turn it on, van den Berg impressed and the youngsters shined. Here are our ratings from Meadow Park by @henrystacey3.

Ali Al-Habsi: 6

Made some good saves but didn't really need to do too much.

Tennai Watson: 6

Looked very solid and seemed to link up well with McCleary.

Paul McShane: 5

Didn't see too much of him as he had to get bandaged after the injury. Passing wasn't great.

Jake Cooper: 5

Occasionally struggled against Yakubu but was still decent.

Jordan Obita: 6

Didn't get the ball much but when he did looked dangerous.

Joey van den Berg: 7

Fantastic debut. After McShane's injury he had to play centre back for 10 minutes and did the job very well, good solid passing as well.

George Evans: 7

Good performance and more attacking than normal. His goal was a beautiful strike.

Danny Williams: 6

Good dribbling and created one good opportunity for himself.

Garath McCleary: 8

Star man in the first half. His pace tormented the Boreham Wood defence and he created some good chances.

Yann Kermorgant: 6

His passing was top draw. Should have done better when played into a good position in the first half but was blocked.

Deniss Rakels: 6

Missing in the first half. Second half very dangerous topped off by a great chip.

Substitutes

Shane Griffin: 6

Didn't notice him much, solid.

Zak Jules: 6

Good heading but once again didn't have to do much so I didn't notice him much.

Danzell Gravenberch: 6

Passing not great, but solid and the game was easy for him.

Rob Dickie: 6

Lost the ball a couple of times but a promising game.

Liam Kelly: 7

Very good at the simple things and a magical free kick.

Josh Barrett: 6

Decent but quiet.

Jack Stacey: 6

Decent but quiet.

Tarique Fosu: 8

Great ideas, pace and two good goals.

Dominic Samuel: 6

Won the free kick from which Kelly scored, when he would have scored if not been fouled. He also did a very good cross for Fosu's first goal.

Craig Tanner: 5

Very quiet.
