Watford stretched the gap between themselves and their promotion rivals with a 2-0 win over Reading.

Here's how we assessed their individual efforts in the match.

Daniel Bachmann - 7

Made some vital stops when called upon and his distribution was effective.

Kiko Femenia - 6.5

Good link up play for the first goal, constantly made himself available down the right. Got caught out defensively a couple of times.

William Troost-Ekong - 5

Another game in which his passing was questionable. Needed help from others around him.

Francisco Sierralta - 6.5

A performance that wasn't without error, but he defended solidly enough.

Adam Masina - 6

Some decent deliveries into the box from the left. Settled down and improved in the second half.

Will Hughes - 6

Had a tough time in the first half but grew into the game in the second.

Nathaniel Chalobah - 5

The team looked better after he left the pitch at half time.

Philip Zinckernagel - 6

Had an awful first half, despite setting up the second goal and seemed destined for a second booking. He had a better second half, as did most people.

Ken Sema - 5.5

Looked exhausted. Hopefully he can benefit from not having a midweek game this week.

Ismaila Sarr - 8.5

Two sensational strikes in the first half were the difference between the two teams. Another excellent display.

Joao Pedro - 6.5

Flashes of excitement, but still off the pace.


Carlos Sanchez - 7

Transformed the game after coming off the bench for the second half.

Craig Cathcart - 6

Looked solid, did all that was required of him.

Andre Gray - N/A

Isaac Success - N/A

Players must have played a minimum of 15 minutes to receive a rating.
