The Newcastle v Reading player ratings as voted by United fans.

Newcastle started off their Championship campaign with a defeat but were there any other positives?

What did the Newcastle supporters make of each player on the pitch?

Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 2pm Thursday.

Always interesting to see what the collective fan votes are after a match, there is always the odd surprise to how you saw the game yourself…

One thing is for sure, no matter how much Rafa Benitez talked him up and also made him Captain, the Newcastle fans still thought Paul Dummett had yet another shocker despite the 4-1 win.

He scored the very lowest mark (4.9), just ahead of Ciaran Clark (5.0), who looked nervous on his debut and as well as conceding a ridiculous penalty, looked to have little composure and regularly booted the ball out of play.

The only other players to score under 6.0 were keeper Matz Sels (5.3) who is yet to convince most fans, Yoan Gouffran (5.9) who ran around a bit…as well as Ayoze Perez (5.5) who put in another poor effort.

At the other end of the scale, Matt Ritchie (8.4) was yet again top of the pile by some distance, meaning he has been our NUFC man of the match in all three games.

The supporting cast saw the other goalscorers, Isaac Hayden (7.5) and Dwight Gayle (7.6), rate highly.

Those seen as putting in average to solid games were Chancel Mbemba (6.7), Vurnon Anita (6.2) and Jonjo Shelvey (6.7).
