Anssi Jaakkola: 5
Were the goals his fault? Perhaps not directly - the defending was shocking in the build-up to all three - but Jaakkola doesn't command his box with any confidence.
Chris Gunter: 4
Caught out by the pace of Murphy too often, and didn't close down with enough vigour. Tried to get forward, but wasn't effective.
Liam Moore: 4
Slack defending throughout a very bad first half, but was a bit better after the break.
Tiago Ilori: 4
Beaten so, so easily for Hanley to nod in Norwich's second. Otherwise, same as Moore.
Tyler Blackett: 5
Caught out a few times, but he was slightly less awful than the other defenders (although that's rather a low bar to be setting...).
Dave Edwards: 4
A passenger in midfield - he didn't offer anything.
Liam Kelly: 6
Reading's best player on the day - he was creative, hard-working and was directly involved in both goals (one instinctive strike of his own, one delicious assist for Sam Smith).
Pelle Clement: 5
A touch sharper and more hard-working than the others, but didn’t create a huge deal. Not helped by being told to play as a right winger when Aluko was withdrawn.
Sone Aluko: 3
Offered absolutely nothing down the right, continuously lost the ball and was rightly substituted for John Swift in the second half.
Sam Smith: 6
He would normally get a 5 for a hard-working yet unproductive performance, but we whack him up by one for a smart close-range finish which dragged Reading back into the game.
Modou Barrow: 5
A rare off day for the Gambian - he didn't get enough service and was left little room in which to work.
John Swift: 5
Actually quite decent - still getting up to speed after injury, but looked inventive in the middle and tried to make things happen. Let down by some poor finishing.
Joey van den Berg: 4
Slow and laboured on the ball, lacked authority off it.
Yann Kermorgant: 4
He played in midfield for some reason - and was as ineffective as you'd imagine.
