Reading's survival hopes took another large dent with a 2-1 defeat at Coventry City.

Here are the ratings.

Joe Lumley, 7: Another strong performance from the on-loan keeper. Made three or four one-versus-one saves and kept his side in it for most of the game.

Andy Yiadom, 6: Not the best display from the captain, who struggled against Viktor Gyokeres all afternoon. Failed to get forward as often as usual, and crosses were weak when he did.

Tom Holmes, 6: Another who struggled against Gyokeres, earning an early booking to walk on a tightrope. Handled himself well considering he was carrying a booking.

Naby Sarr, 7: Another immense performance, throwing himself into tackles all over the pitch. Reading of the game much improved too, stepping into interceptions on more than one occasion.

Nesta Guinnes-Walker, 6: Not as good a performance as his previous two under Noel Hunt, but still showing plenty of potential. Failed to make as big an impact going forward as usual.

Femi Azeez, 6: Had very little impact on the game throughout as the Royals struggled as an attacking force. A quiet game by his standards.

Cesare Casadei, 6: Some nice pieces of play and certainly grew into the game. Looked a tad lightweight in the first half, failing to deal with the Sky Blues' intensity.

Jeff Hendrick, 6: A decent showing from the experienced midfielder, who looked to dictate play when Reading were in possession. Was forced off in between the equaliser and eventual winner- leaving a big space for Gustavo Hamer to exploit.

Mamadi Camara, 6: The teenager's first league start and he looked a tad out of his depth. A good impact player and plenty of potential.

Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan, 6: Had little to no impact, although the ball was hardly played in his direction. Should have won a first half penalty after being hauled down.

Lucas Joao, 7: A tidy performance from the star striker, keeping the ball well and taking his goal expertly. Could be the difference maker.



Tyrese Fornah, 6: Energetic performance from the makeshift winger, who delivered plenty of crosses into the box. 

Tom McIntyre, 6: First involvement since injury and had little impct. Kept the ball ticking over and provided cover for the backline.

Shane Long, 6: Ran around lots but had no chances to level the game from his short cameo.
