Here are our player ratings from Reading's 1-0 defeat to Luton Town in the FA Cup third round.

Luke Southwood - 6

Came in for Rafael and put in a good display. Made one very brave stop to deny Hylton a chance in the second half. Didn't have a lot to do and couldn't do much for the solitary goal.

Tomas Esteves - 7

One of the more senior players in the starting XI, despite his young age. Looked bright offensively and provided a real threat on the overlap. Caught out a couple of times and left gaps as he pressed forward.

Jeriel Dorsett - 6

Dealt well with the imposing presence of Hylton who led the line for the hosts. Battled well and repelled a lot of aerial danger.

Tom McIntyre - 7

Led the defence with a good showing. Was quick to step forward and take a hold of a lot of loose balls. 

Ethan Bristow - 3

Looked a little nervy and was out of position on several key moments. Struggled to deal with the threat down the Luton right and was targetted from early on.

Oli Pendlebury - 8 

Slotted seamlessly into the midfield and looked very composed on the ball, passing the ball quickly and accurately. Showed good control and was tidy in possesion. 

Alfa Semedo - 6

Shielded the defence with a combative display in the midfield. Covered the ground well and looked more comfortable in his favoured position.

Another decent shift by the loanee who was playing in his more natural defensive midfield position. Brought lots of energy and a physical presence to the midfield. Went close with a firm shot which was well parried.

Jayden Onen - 4

Should've done better with a rebound after Baldock's effort was stopped. Outmuscled off the ball a few times and struggled to make a real impact out wide.

Sone Aluko - 5

Missed a sitter in the second half which could have turned the game on it's head. Did look keen to get on the ball and drive at the Luton defence and showed some nice touches to get into space.

Michael Olise - 3

Set pieces were off the mark and Olise really struggled to show his usual standards on the ball. 

Sam Baldock - 4

Quiet for long periods and didn't make enough runs that would challenge the Luton defence. Came close with a stinging shot from distance in the second half.


Tetek - 5

Came on halfway through the second half and added energy to the midfield.

Melvin-Lambert - 5

Showed some good movement to get into soem good positions but missed a one-on-one late on

Mamadi Camara - 4

Didn't make much of a mark on the game.

Conor Lawless - 4

Looked eager to impress but didn't get on the ball much in the closing stages.
