Reading 2-2 Ipswich Town - Player Ratings

Spoiler: Yakou Meite was good... the rest were pretty bad.

Anssi Jaakkola - 4

With a rotating cast in goal due to injuries and form, Jaakkola did little to convince anyone he is the short- or long-term answer between the sticks. From goal kicks which went straight out of play, to one mix-up with O’Shea which almost gave Ipswich an open goal, he was shaky throughout.

Andy Yiadom - 5

Didn’t get forward too much in the match, and struggled at times defensively too, especially with the error which led to Ipswich’s second.

Liam Moore - 4

This might have been his worst performance in a Reading shirt. Indecisive throughout the match, and involved in the mix-up for the visitors’ second goal.

John O’Shea - 4

Outmuscled in the incident for Ipswich’s second, had another near-calamity with Jaakkola later on.

Tyler Blackett - 5

Showed some nice touches going forward but a liability defensively, with Ipswich regularly finding space in behind him.

Andy Rinomhota - 5

Didn’t really lose the ball, didn’t really affect the game in a positive way either.

Liam Kelly - 5

Part of a midfield that seemed to be bypassed in attack, and invisible in defence. I don’t see why he can’t play ten yards further forward, rather than coming to collect the ball from defenders who could pass it to him anyway.

Leandro Bacuna - 5

Defensively poor, but picked out Meite with a fantastic drilled cross to get the late equaliser.

Mo Barrow - 4

Looked unlucky to be booked for diving early on, but aside from that, did very little to affect the game.

Yakou Meite - 7

Took his two goals extremely well. Offered very little else in attack, barely touching the ball, although this is also a by-product of poor service.

Sam Baldock - 4

Put in the cross for Meite’s first goal, and did little else aside from missing two golden chances in the final few minutes.


Garath McCleary - 6

A conventional winger who caused Ipswich a number of problems once he was introduced.

John Swift - n/a

Little impact, aside from being another body further up-field.

Marc McNulty - n/a

Little impact.
