Yep did well to get his head on it for the Goal

YouTube’s a bit crap though and pic quality is poor

Had a nice free kick from Holsgrove about 5 Mins before, brought out a good save

Really struggling to tell who is who with no names, not proper squad numbers poor angle and so many Academy lads.

That looked a soft penalty.

Sevilla looking a lot better down the left now Reguillon and Nolito are on. Both giving us the run around.

What’s the 2nd half line up?

Nova looks fairly fast and mobile. Could see Him and Baldock actually combining ok

Is 19 a trialist? Don't recognise who he'd be from position. Looks a mix of very handy and a bit raw.

Liking the look of Holsgrove and Nova. Richards still looks a bit soft.

That's the trialist right?

Bugger. Who was marking him then?

Hmm, Richards, but he drifted well and there was no help from the LW slot.

He is a trialist. Courtney Friday thinks there is a hold up in his signing for us as there is a dispute over contract length.

Could see that coming in slow-mo with Richards completely losing his man....

Well deserved goal for Sevilla. Was always coming down that left hand side.

Just a shock that it wasn't Reguillon or Nolito providing the assist.

Only watched the second half, thought we looked weak at lb and rb, but tbf Sevilla’s best play was via the wings

Difficult to take too much from it but Holsgrove stood out. Baldock worked hard, Nova looks an option. Boadu, yeah some good and some bad

Played well enough to have a bit of optimism.

Bear in mind different teams first half and second half. First looked stronger on paper.

Yeah, pretty much how I saw it, Hound.

Holsgrove the pick in 2nd half. Baldock - typically Baldock. Lots of running and.....

Nova - one chance, one goal.

Thought Boadu looked well off the pace and got caught in possession a couple of times, once giving them a free kick on edge of the box. Looked like a very second rate Ezatolahi to me.

Couple of decent saves from Jokull, too.

Yep agree with Holsgrove looking good, needs to get a bit stronger and bit more explosive but very tidy and good technique.

Boadu at least wants the ball and has the confidence to keep asking for it and try and turn on it. Hopefully with more pre-season he'll lose it less.

That was Omar Richards, not Osho.

Oh okay, I'm not 100% sure what either look like, the Reading FC Twitter said it was Osho but looking back I dunno, it looks like they deleted the tweet because I can't find it so I guess they got it wrong.

Twitter definitely said it was Osho at the time. Both the official Twitter and many fans.
