Tom Holmes doing his usual thing of not seeing the player cutting across his path.

The attacker helped him by going down so long after the contact.

I know there wasn't much contact, but Holmes knew what he was doing and did just enough to mean he couldn't reach the ball.

Ref is really poor IMO.

Feel like Joao should have buried that.

Holmes must have had a terrible first 10, he's barely put a foot wrong since I started watching.

Tbf it’s been about time. I feel the standard of officiating this year has been excellent.

Brilliant by ejaria and Holmes there

Overall looked quite static going forward though and fairly disorganised at the back.

Feel like we'll need to improve second half to win this

Strangely has looked great going forward but shite defending.

That whole possession sequence before Holmes low cross to Joao was fantastic to watch

It feels like this game is being played in slow motion, might just be the pace of the pitch.

Feels to me like we have too many luxury players in the midfield. Ejaria, Swift and Olise don't seem to be tracking back enough, or getting first to the loose balls.

Unimpressive first half performance, Reading should get better.

Yep that pretty much. Lost every header, terrible back pass. Lucky not to have been sent off

But a couple of nice runs and a lovely cross

Either way needs to be hooked or else he’ll quite likely be sent off

Rino and Laurent not been as dominant as you’d hope

Swift, Ovie and ejaria some great stuff but lots of giving the ball away

Holmes and Richards been pretty terrible. CBs good
