'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Leeds 2 - 4 Reading

Reading added to the misery of former manager Brian McDermott, with a 4-2 victory over Leeds at Elland Road.

The Royals took the lead in Yorkshire, but through the home sides own undoing, as Jack Butland's clearance was charged down by Garath McCleary, tapping into an empty net. It got better for Adkins' side after half time too, as Royston Drenthe scored a second.

Substitute Nick Blackman and loan striker Hal Robson-Kanu scored to make it 4-0 to Reading, scoring three goals in eight second half minutes. A quickfire double from Matt Smith and Rudi Austin got the home side back in the game, but couldn't capitalise.

Full match report to follow Wednesday afternoon.
