SUNDERLAND (4-1-4-1)

5 Camp: Gave away the spot-kick after fouling Bodvarsson but saved from Kelly

6 Love: Did little wrong in a solid performance in a Sunderland back line that was unfairly breached twice

6 Kone: Strong at the back and played his part in repelling a late charge by Reading

6 Wilson Came into the starting eleven and did well, although he may have done better for the second goal

5 Oviedo : Only played a part in the first half as he was substituted early in the second with a knock;

7: McManaman: Impressive on the right and gave the Reading defence plenty to think about

7 Cattermole : Deserved his second half goal in a impressive display

6 Honeyman : His backheel to McManaman in the first half was his most notable effort

9 McNAIR: His second half thunderbolt of a goal was the highlight

7 McGeady: May have done better with a first half shot against Mannone

6 Fletcher : Found plenty of space in the Reading flanks


Clarke-Salter (for Oviedo, 48): Was tested at the back with a late Reading onslaught. 6

Asoro (for McManaman, 75): Almost snatched it at the death. 6

Maja (for Honeyman, 82) : A ten minute cameo was not sufficient.

(not used): Stryjek, LuaLua, E Robson, Ejaria

MAN OF THE MATCH: Paddy McNair - A bright spot in an otherwise wretched season with his wonder strike early in the second half giving Sunderland some hope at the Madejski.
