Reading 3 Millwall 1 Player Ratings 


Just a quick reminder 6 is the score for an acceptable run of the mill performance. 

Jaakkola 6 

Another solid showing and can’t remember any mistakes. Couldn’t do anything about the Millwall goal and rarely tested in the 2nd half or ET. 

Gunter 6 

As you would expect from Chris. Nothing spectacular in the less familiar position of LWB. 

Ilori 6 

A couple of nice moments of anticipation to snuff out any danger and looked a lot calmer than against Fulham. Good run out to keep him match sharp. 

Andresson 6

Nice to see another left footed defensive option. Looked strong, composed and okay defensively. Axel had one good short from a corner in the 1st half. We might see him used in the 1st team squad at some point this year. 

Bacuna 7

Looked good on the ball and scored an excellent goal. Looked very unfit in the 2nd half and then appeared to get a second wind to last until the 95th minute. 

Rinomhota 8 MOTM 

I’ve now seen him in two different positions and been impressed both times. Quality on the ball and a eye for a pass going forward. Defending he was just as good. Several good clearances helped by good positioning. Perhaps some competition for Gunter at RB.  

Quinn 6 

Took a while to get into the game on his first start for months. Gradually we started to some of the Quinn we know as the game progressesed, Simple passing became more progesssive and his work for the team as always was 100%. He will only get better with more games. Good to have him back and looking fit. 

Evans 7 

For 45 minutes George was off the pace. Looked sluggish and indecisive. Definitely got better better in the 2nd half and capped it with the stunning 2nd goal. 

McCleary 6

Some nice touches from Gareth in his 45 mins, looked like he was only running at 75 % which is understandable as he’s coming back from another injury. 

Popa 7

Adi gets his 7 mainly because of his perseverance and team work. There was a lack of quality with his final ball tonight and he switched off for the corner which led to the Millwall goal. 

Smith 7 

I think that was a better overall showing from Sam tonight. Link up play was better than against Gillingham and yet another one who didn’t stop. Snatched at his chance just before FT but kept his composure to score his deserved goal based on his effort alone. 


Clement 6 (45) 

Bit of a mixed bag from Pelle. Some nice play and some sloppy stuff. He did okay overall. 

Barrow 6 (71) 

By far the best player after he came on the but can’t rate him higher as he didn’t actually score or assist a goal. Looks good every time he gets the ball. 

Blackett 6 (90+2) 

Was rarely troubled in ET. 

Loader 6 

Can’t say I really noticed him. On that basis I can’t rate him him high or low.
