READING FC had to settle for a point after squandering a 1-0 lead against Hull City FC at Madejski Stadium.

Royals had taken the lead through Jordan Obita but some costly defending saw Grant McCann’s side snatch an equaliser through Mallik Wilks.

It means Mark Bowen’s side spurned the chance to leapfrog the Tigers in the Championship table.

See our player ratings below.

Rafael: 6/10 - An all-round solid performance from the Brazilian ‘keeper who was rarely tested. He made a great start to the game however by denying Tom Eaves after just two minutes. Nothing he could have done to keep out Hull’s equaliser after the ball took a deflection and looped over his head.

Gunter: 5/10 - Started the game brightly but was forced off injured in the 26th minute. Not often he doesn’t last 90 minutes so he must have been in some discomfort.

Morrison: 5/10 - Felt he was caught out of position a couple of times but overall he was solid enough. Would be harsh to blame him alone for Hull’s goal which took a deflection off of Morrison before looping over Rafael.

Moore: 5/10 - A strong performance from the captain who did brilliantly to deny Jackson Irvine from point-blank range in the second minute. Could have been a very different game had Moore not kept that one out.

Blackett: 5/10 - A decent enough performance from a man who looks to be off in the summer after rejecting a two-and-a-half year deal. He sprayed some lovely cross-field passes and looked comfortable playing as part of a back three in the first half.

Obita: 6/10 - Poor in the first half but swapped position to left-wing in the second and took his goal brilliantly. He crept into the box but still had plenty of work to do when he fired the ball between Long’s legs.

Swift: 4/10 - Not one of his best performances in a Reading shirt. Misplaced passes early on and didn’t look all too comfortable playing on the right wing.

Ejaria: 6/10 - Dazzling footwork as always. Possibly did not create as much as Mark Bowen would have liked but he did have two eye-catching occasions where he took the ball past several players before coming close to scoring.

Pele: 5/10 - Does all the dirty work that sometimes goes unnoticed. He protected the back line well throughout the game and showed a good range of passing at times too.

Baldock: 6/10 - Relentless performance from the ex-Brighton man. His end product is not always there but you certainly cannot fault his work-rate. Unlucky not to score in the first half too after a magnificent first touch.

Meite: 5/10 - The Ivorian did not quite reach the level we have seen him playing at in recent weeks and looked quite clumsy on the ball. Should have done better when Baldock played him through on goal but a bad first touch teed up a poor strike at goal.

Araruna: 6/10 - Thrown in at the deep end after Chris Gunter was forced off injured and looked at home straight away. He showed a fantastic range of passes and good defensive attributes despite playing in what is not considered to be his favoured position. He probably won’t be trying many more long range volleys mind…

Richards: 5/10 - Struggled to get into the game after replacing Reading’s goalscorer just after the hour mark. Had an opportunity to grab a second for Reading on 78 minutes but dragged his shot wide of Long’s post.

Aluko: 5/10 - Looks much sharper than when he first returned to the side and was keen to get on the ball and make things happen. Certainly feel he has still got something to add to this squad.
