Reading twice took the lead, and were twice pegged back, in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Barnsley at Oakwell.

Take a look at the ratings below.

Joel Pereira, 6: Made some good saves in the first half but was forced off at the break with a head injury. 

Kelvin Abrefa, 6: Had a few shaky moments but did well on what was his full league debut for the club. Not as attacking as Andy Yiadom but put in some big blocks.

Tyler Bindon, 6: Aerially impressive and looked to have the better of the Barnsley forwards until a crazy spell towards the end where the Tykes peppered the goal and looked certain to add to their tally. Will learn a lot from a tough defensive afternoon.

Amadou Mbengue, 6: Similar to Bindon, will learn a lot from the game at Oakwell, defending well but finding themselves under considerable pressure at times. Passing out looked very comfortable.

Clinton Mola, 7: Impressive afternoon from the left-back, who defended well but more importantly offered a real threat offensively. Positive showing from the man playing himself into the supporters' good books.

Lewis Wing, 7: Controlled possession when with the ball and tracked back without it. Scored yet another sublime goal to nearly win the game for his side, his sixth goal from outside the box.

Ben Elliott, 7: Best performance of the season from the youngster, who oozed class and never looked flustered in a busy patch of the game. Needs to show more of this level to continue progressing.

Harvey Knibbs, 7: Won the ball numerous times high in the pitch and loved nothing more than driving at the heart of the Barnsley defence. Had fewer sights on goal than usual but did his bit for the team, and some.

Femi Azeez, 6: Got in some excellent areas but end ball not good enough on too many occasions. Shot at times when passing was the better option.

Sam Smith, 6: Similar to Azeez, he had a selfish streak in him where he passed up better opportunities for the team to try and score himself. Should have scored at least one more than he did.

Paul Mukairu, 5: Very frustrating as he had at least two big chances to score but failed to convert them both.



David Button, 6: Did nothing out of the ordinary despite having to get acclimatised to the game fast.

Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan, 7: Impressive performance out wide, beating his man at will and trying his luck from range. Positive cameo.

Charlie Savage, 6: Made himself a nuisance and had some positive spells on the edge of the box. Kept things ticking along nicely.
