Reading 3-0 Luton Town: Player Ratings

Plenty of Royals stood out in a comfortable home win over the Hatters.

Rafael: 6

His biggest contribution came in the first ten minutes when Luton had their only shot on target - parrying away a decent shot from Martin Cranie. Other than that didn’t really have anything of note.

Omar Richards: 7

An accomplished performance from the young left back. One particularly impressive, mazey run into the box forced a good save from James Shea. Slightly quieter in the second half.

Liam Moore: 6

Decent without much to do - barely needed to make a tackle. Another clean sheet.

Michael Morrison: 7

A good header into the corner to kick off the scoring, albeit one that was pretty much unopposed. Clean sheet.

Matt Miazga: 6

Alongside the other defenders had a good, but quiet game. Could have given a penalty away late on when the ball struck his arm in the area.

Andy Yiadom: 6

For once overshadowed by his counterpart on the other side. Looked solid going forward, but didn’t create many chances. Not really troubled defensively.

Andy Rinomhota: 7

Part of the reason Luton never mounted a serious attack was because Rinomhota cleaned it up before it even started. Absolutely everywhere - exactly what the team were missing earlier in the season.

John Swift: 8

Ran the show again. A beautiful cross for Morrison’s opener, although he may be a bit fortunate to be registered as an assist for Ejaria’s effort. Started showing off at one point; probably man of the match.

Ovie Ejaria: 7

An incredible shot from the corner of the box increased his tally for the season. Strangely subbed off early in the second, which showed how influential he can be when Luton took over shortly after.

Sam Baldock: 6

Worked hard, linked up with Puscas well, but didn’t show his clinical side. Had a couple of chances that he potentially could have done better with.

George Puscas: 6

Still struggling to find his shooting boots, but starting to form a partnership with Baldock. Had a decent header just before being withdrawn.

Subs

Garath McCleary: 7

Looked lively from the moment he came on. Played in a slightly unfamiliar central position, but capitalised on a mistake from Sheehan to score an emotional first goal since his comeback.

Yakou Meite: 5

Put himself about, but didn’t really hold the ball up quite as well as you’d hope given the circumstances.

Danny Loader: 6

Didn’t have time to make an impact.


Average: 6.43/10
