Jobi and Hal pave the way

Royals wingers Jobi McAnuff and Hal Robson-Kanu are amongst the Premier League’s most accurate wide players. 
Only five players in the top flight have sent more crosses into the box than our skipper, whilst only six have a better cross completion ratio than Robson-Kanu.
Overall  only two clubs in the Premier League have sent more crosses into the box during open play – with Newcastle (594) and West Ham (633) just outstripping the 578 crosses sent into the box by Reading.

McAnuff has eight league assists to his name this season, whilst Robson-Kanu has five goals in the top flight.
