Reading 2-1 Brentford: Player Ratings

Meite grabbed the headlines with his brace, but who else stood out?

Emiliano Martínez: 6

He made some smart saves, but was also at fault for Brentford’s goal and looked jittery throughout the game.

Andy Yiadom: 7

A strong performance in both defence and attack.

Matt Miazga: 7

Another calm display at the back. Never looked under pressure.

Liam Moore: 7

He led by example and made a few important blocks.

Chris Gunter: 6

The Welshman kept the highly rated Olly Watkins quiet despite getting little defensive support from Modou Barrow. He also made a couple of good attacking runs in the first half.

Andy Rinomhota: 6

Gave the ball away before conceding the free-kick that led to Brentford’s goal. That aside, he worked hard with his now regular customary forward drives.

Lewis Baker: 7

The standout player in the first half. He was quieter after the break, but started to show the talent that once made him so highly rated.

Ovie Ejaria: 8

Got better and better as the game went on. Has an Elastigirl-like ability to intercept the ball and get past opponents.

Modou Barrow: 6

Lovely assist for the opening goal, but he drifted in and out of the game and missed a sitter in the first half.

Nélson Oliveira: 6

Worked hard and, in the first half, played an important role launching many an attack. However, he maybe could have done better with a chance in the second half when Yiadom put a cross in from the right but he could only fire over from a few yards out.

Yakou Méïté: 8

Two superbly taken goals. He looked tired in the second half, but worked his socks off nonetheless.


Garath McCleary: 6

Didn’t really get into the game, but worked hard and showed good footwork when he did get onto the ball.

Callum Harriott and Tyler Blackett: N/A

Neither were on the pitch long enough to get a grade.

Average: 6.66/10
