Reading won their first league match away from home for more than 370 days.

Here are the ratings.

David Button, 6: Had little to do in terms of making saves, but commanded his box well. Few hairy moments with the ball at his feet.

Andy Yiadom, 7: Really good display from the captain, who handled his former teammate, Garath McCleary, well all afternoon.

Tyler Bindon, 8: A complete performance from the teenager, who won everything in the air and complimented his partner Nelson Abbey.

Nelson Abbey, 7: Swept up perfectly behind Bindon, and looked very composed when starting attacks. A centre-back pairing for the present and the future.

Jeriel Dorsett, 7: Despite being played out of position, the Academy graduate more than held his own. What he lacked in pace, he made up for defensive awareness and hunger to win back possession.

Michael Craig, 7: A proper terrier in midfield, Craig won the ball well and dominated the midfield. For someone so young, his awareness was quite something to see.

Lewis Wing, 7: Grew into it more as the game wore on, but his talent was there to be seen. Needs to be given the ball in more dangerous areas.

Harvey Knibbs, 6: A quieter afternoon than his midfield teammates, but did not put a foot wrong. Looked like he enjoyed being more central than his usual winger role.

Femi Azeez, 7: A much better showing from the winger, who picked up a pair of assists. Still needs to work on his end product, but should do his confidence the world of good.

Sam Smith, 8: Almost perfect lone striker performance, with excellent hold-up play and a poacher goal. Could, and should, have done better with the chances presented to him.

Dom Ballard, 6: Looked very bright but was forced off with a major injury after just 30 minutes. Awful news for the teenager, who had just scored a hattrick for England Under-19s.



Paul Mukairu, 7: Ran himself into the ground on the wing. Delivered some dangerous crosses which should have been converted.

Charlie Savage, 6: Came on to see the game out and put some serious miles in the tank with harrying and hustling. 

Amadou Mbengue, 7: Won all his tackles and drove forward when given the chance. A great impact cameo.
