Southwood: 7/10 - Another clean sheet for the young ‘keeper. Didn’t have much to do but did make one really brave save to deny Matt Crook in the second half.

Tetek: 7/10 - Struggled positionally in the opening exchanges but grew into the game as time went on. Made some really good blocks and tackles.

Yiadom: 7/10 - Slotted in well at centre back. Struggled with balls in the air for obvious reasons but showed good experience and composure with the ball at his feet.

Laurent: 7/10 - Continued his impressive display at centre back from Saturday and looked comfortable throughout proceedings.

Rahman: 6/10 - Was a threat going forward but his delivery from the wing let him down slightly.

Drinkwater: 7/10 - Superb display from the experienced midfielder. His passing was crisp and he orchestrated several attacks from a deep position.

Dele-Bashiru: 6/10 - A decent display from the Watford loanee but he did squander a golden opportunity to give Royals the lead early in the second half.

Halilovic: 7/10 - Looked fitter and sharper this afternoon and ended up bagging the winner, even if he didn’t know much about it!

Swift: 7/10 - Always looking forward and showed crisp passing but should have taking his tally to eight for the season after missing a wonderful chance in the first half.

Ejaria: 6/10 - Not quite the exciting display he put in at Fulham last week but didn’t put a foot wrong all afternoon and showed flashes of brilliance with his dazzling footwork to play Royals out of trouble.

Hoilett: 6/10 - Scuffed a half chance in the second half but played well overall in an unnatural centre forward role. Went down injured towards the end of the game but thankfully got back to his feet.
