CHAMPIONS!!!!

Reading Swept aside a stubborn Derby County side in the second half of this game to take the Championship title in style.

Reading 5-0 Derby County

It had been a frustrating afternoon for the Royals who took the best part of an hour to break through the Derby defence.

James Harper got the opener and that started the landslide with Kevin Doyle adding the second six minutes later.

John Oster came off the bench to make it 3-0 soon after and then Shane Long added the fourth and fifth goals to complete the rout.

Sheffield United could only draw at Stoke which means the Royals go into the Premiership as Champions of the Championship.

Report to follow after many, many beers.
