Pog makes debut as Royals lose to Owls

Pog makes debut as Royals lose to Owls

Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak made his debut for the club, but the Royals went down 2-0 to Sheffield Wednesday.

For the third pre-season game running, Royals boss Brian McDermott named two-seperate teams for each half, but neither side could prevent a loss at the hands of Championship side Sheffield Wednesday. Mike Jones opened the scoring for the Owls just before half-time with a good strike from the edge of the box.

Reading had their chances to equalise throughout the game, but the match was put beyond doubt when Chris O'Grady grabbed a second for Wednesday. Striker Marlon Harewood put Sean Morrison under pressure and gave himself an opening, but after his shot was saved, O'Grady tapped in the rebound.

Reading first half: Andersen, Cummings, Mariappa, Gorkss, Shorey, Tabb, Leigertwood, Church, Hunt, Roberts

Reading second half: Andersen, Gunnarsson, Morrison, Pearce, Harte, Antonio, Guthrie, McAnuff, Robson-Kanu, Le Fondre, Pogrebnyak
