Leeds United 0-1 Reading FC: Player Ratings

Reading claimed an impressive win at Elland Road on Saturday, but how did the players do?

Vito Mannone: 7

Saved a last minute penalty under huge pressure in the dying moments of the game. However, he didn’t have much to do other than that, with Leeds registering only three shots on target.

Leandro Bacuna: 7

My man of the match. Started at right back for the first time since signing, and produced a solid performance including a last ditch tackle to deny Jay-Roy Grot a tap in when it was still 0-0.

Liam Moore: 6

Another solid performance from the former Leicester City centre-back who had to step up in the absence of the experienced Paul McShane.

Tiago Ilori: 7

Produced his best performance of the season, a far cry from the horror show against QPR on the opening day of the season. Composed and solid at the back.

Chris Gunter: 6

Decent display at left back but got caught out a few times when Leeds counter-attacked.

Joey Van den Berg: 7

Got the assist for Modou Barrow’s goal, but on the whole he put in a solid all-round performance. However, he got a stupid yellow card for kicking the ball away which put himself under pressure unnecessarily.

Dave Edwards: 6

A good performance from the Wolves man who did his best to nullify Samuel Saiz, but missed a good chance in the second half, shooting over from Bodvarsson’s cut-back.

Garath McCleary: 5

Did nothing of note, a very quiet game for the Jamaican.

Roy Beerens: 6

He produced a few moments of quality, particularly in the first half when he linked up well with Chris Gunter. Unfortunate to be taken off.

Sone Aluko: 6

Like Beerens, Aluko produced a few moments of quality which caused trouble for the Leeds defence, and went close to scoring in the first half.

Jon Dadi Bödvarsson: 6

Did well up top in terms of holding the ball up but should have done better in the first half when he was put through on goal.

Modou Barrow: 7

Came off the bench to score the winner with a fantastic side foot finish past Andy Lonergan.

Liam Kelly: 6

Did his best to try and influence the game, but didn’t make much of an impact.

Pelle Clement: N/A

Not enough time to make an impact other than helping his team see out the match.
