READING FC finally got a victory on home soil with a 3-0 victory over former boss Nigel Adkins’ Hull City this afternoon.

Goals from Sam Baldock, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Andy Yiadom ensured Royals all three points for just the second time this season.

Paul Clement wielded the axe on his squad after the disappointing 2-1 defeat against Norwich City on Wednesday night.

John O’Shea, Josh Sims and Said Ezatolahi were handed their first league starts as Chris Gunter, Sone Aluko and Yakou Meite were relegated to the bench.

Here’s how we thought the Royals performed.

Sam Walker: 6/10 - Rarely called into action but made one significant contribution with a brilliant save to deny Chris Martin’s half-volley.

Andy Yiadom: 8/10 - Not the best of starts for the Ghana international who was caught in possession several times int he early stages. His crossing lacked quality at times but he made amends - firstly with a brilliant spin and pass inside the box to set up Bodvarsson and then a fine turn and goal of his own.

Liam Moore: 6/10 - Was a man mountain at the back for most of the game. Nothing got past him and looked very comfortable playing with John O’Shea. A couple of reckless challenges, possibly out of frustration, but a captain’s performance nonetheless.

Tiago Ilori: 6/10 - Good performance seeing as he was playing in unfamiliar territory on the right-hand-side. Got caught out of position a couple of times but made several key interceptions, including a brilliant tracking run and tackle to deny Todd Kane when he was through on goal.

John O’Shea: 5/10 - Looked brilliant for the majority of the game, composed at the back and won most of his aerial duels. That said, he let himself down with a poor last-man tackle which resulted in his sending off with less than 10 minutes to go.

Josh Sims: 6/10 Answered any questions about whether he can make an impact from the beginning. He looked lively throughout and caused Stephen Kingsley all sorts of problems along the flanks. Sone Aluko will definitely have to step up his game to earn a recall.

Leandro Bacuna: 7/10 - Looked a constant threat from midfield with his energy and showed his class from dead-ball situations. Brilliant corner to set up Baldock’s goal and was desperately unlucky not to score himself when Marshall’s fingertips denied a wonderful free-kick.

Said Ezatolahi: 6/10 - Made a good impression on his Royals debut. Unlucky not to open the scoring with a fine header which Baldock eventually tucked into the back of the net. Got caught in possession a couple of times but good performance all around.

Liam Kelly: 6/10 - Another solid performance from the young midfielder. Didn’t set the world alight but didn’t really put a foot wrong either. Got caught in possession when trying to be clever in the first half but other than that a valiant effort.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson: 7/10 - Desperately unlucky not to continue his goal-scoring form after Sims set him up at the near post. Snatched at a couple of chances in the first-half made up for it with a fine finish to put Reading 2-0 up after 70 minutes.

Sam Baldock: 7/10 - Razor-sharp reflexes to put Royals in front after Ezatolahi’s near-post header was parried away by David Marshall. Played in unfamiliar territory on the left wing but looked like a threat throughout.

John Swift: 5/10 - Didn’t make much of an impact from the bench but he linked the play up well whenever he got his foot on the ball.

Modou Barrow: 6/10 - Made an immediate impact from the bench and caused Hull all sorts of problems on the left wing. Played a big part in Royals’ second goal.

Chris Gunter: N/A
