Reading threw away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at Shrewsbury Town.

Here are the ratings.

David Button, 6: Made a few solid saves in the second half to prevent the comeback being completed earlier. Beaten from an obscure angle for the first goal.

Andy Yiadom, 6: Was great at getting forward throughout, and for the most-part defended well. Shrewsbury equaliser came from his side.

Tyler Bindon, 6: Perhaps should have closed Tom Bayliss quicker for his goal and was beaten a few times by half-time addition Daniel Udoh.

Nelson Abbey, 6: Looked fairly comfortable throughout, even when shifted to full-back.

Jeriel Dorsett, 6: Beaten for pace a few times but on the whole a solid appearance at full-back for the central defender. Substituted off late on which did not work in the Royals' favour.

Lewis Wing, 5: Very quiet day at the office for the League One regular. Failed to stamp his authority on the game,

Sam Hutchinson, 6: Very good for the first 70 minutes, but the veteran tired and ultimately lost his man for the late equaliser.

Harvey Knibbs, 6: Was too soft for the Shrews' first goal, but overall played well and won the ball high up on multiple occasions.

Femi Azeez, 5: Squandered multiple opportunities to add to Reading's advantage, and rarely appeared to make the right decision when attacking.

Sam Smith, 7: A near perfect striker's performance, on and off the ball. Only further improvement was to score his header, which he put over the ball.

Dom Ballard, 7: A constant threat, the teenager added to his tally for the season in Shropshire. Very explosive, going forward and backwards, the Southampton loanee impressed.



Ben Elliott, 6: A quiet cameo from the teenager.

Harlee Dean, 6: Always hard to adapt as a centre-back late in the game. Beaten for pace a few times but handled the strikers okay one-versus-one,
