Reading welcomed Sunderland to the Madejski in a vital bottom of the table clash as Sunderland needed to win in order to have any chance of playing in the Championship next season.
Reading took the lead in the first half against the run of play when Lee Camp brought down Bodvarsson in the area to give Reading a penalty that was converted by Liam Kelly. Paddy McNair scored a screamer to give Sunderland an equaliser before Cattermole put the Black Cats ahead. However, in the 79th minute, Yann Kermogant pulled Reading level.
The game finished 2-2, meaning Sunderland are going to find it very hard to survive.
Gave away the penalty and then couldn’t save it and did all he could to save the second goal.
Played much better when going forward than he did defensively.
An average game for Kone. Could have done better to prevent the Reading goals.
Was brought in to cover the central defence and put in a good shift for his side.
Had a good first half but was replaced in the 48th minute by Jake Clarke-Salter. Looks like he picked up a knock.
Scored a vital goal in the 66th minute to put Sunderland ahead. Had an excellent game.
He should have had a penalty in the first half. He should have scored too but blazed over, late in the first half.
Scored an absolute rocket to bring the Black Cats level early in the second half.
Showed flashes of his quality throughout the game but this wasn’t his best performance.
Man of the match on the Sunderland side but was not quite enough to secure a victory for the Black Cats.
Hit the woodwork and battled hard against the Reading defenders.
Guarded his flank well throughout the second half.
Was not able to have too much impact.
The young striker was thrown on to give Sunderland more energy going forward.
