Vito Mannone: 7
On a really lucky day, might have kept out Johansen’s goal, but a couple of excellent second half saves capped off a fine and reliable performance.
Chris Gunter: 5
Classic Gunter. No forward thrust whatsoever, but a brilliant goal line clearance in the second half.
Liam Moore: 7
Faultless. Spent most of the game taming the gigantic Mitrovic.
Tiago Ilori: 7
His best game for Reading. Assured and cocky. Only blot was a typical second half stumble brought about by an over-confident turn.
Omar Richards: 4
Spent the game looking lightweight. Decent enough going forwards, but gave the ball away for the Fulham goal.
Leandro Bacuna: 4
Nothing special, but played reasonably well in a holding role... until the stupid sending off.
Dave Edwards: 6
Didn’t penetrate much as an advanced midfielder. But impressed with his mature handling of the post-goal panic.
Liam Kelly: 4
What’s happened to Kelly? Everything sideways. Can’t find his man. Not a single penetrative pass. Looks like he needs a holiday.
Sone Aluko: 4
Did absolutely nothing. And what’s with the constant over-hitting of passes and centres?
Mo Barrow: 6
Our best attacker, again. If only he could buy some composure.
Jon Dadi Bodvarsson: 5
Tried hard, and was genuinely effective for the first 30 minutes. Then ran out of steam.
John Swift: 4
Gave the ball away a lot, and was too easily shrugged off the ball.
Yann Kermogant: 4
Huffed and puffed, to no obvious effect.
Chris Martin: 4
Needs to go on a diet.
