Church scores hat trick as Royals rout Dons

Reading striker Simon Church scored a second-half hat trick as the Royals beat AFC Wimbledon 7-0 at the Kingsmeadow Stadium.

The Royals had a strong-looking line up and opened the scoring 27 minutes from the penalty spot, as Hunt was brought down by a Dons defender. Striker Adam Le Fondre stepped up and calmly slotted home and Le Fondre doubled the lead a minute before half time, beating the offside trap and chipping expertly after a superb pass from Kaspars Gorkss.

Reading boss Brian McDermott changed his team at half-time, as did the hosts. Winger Michail Antonio scored a third with a powerful header, while a quickfire double from Simon Church made it five. Jordan Obita's fine strike made it six, before Church scored his hat trick to round off the scoring at the Kingsmeadow Stadium.

Reading First Half: McCarthy, Keown, Morrison, Pearce, Harte, McCleary, Guthrie, Tabb, Robson-Kanu, Hunt, Le Fondre

Reading Second Half: McCarthy (Taylor 60), Cummings, Pearce, Hector, Shorey, Antonio, Leigertwood, McAnuff, Obita (Sheppard 80), Church, Roberts

Star Player

First half - Danny Guthrie - controlled the flow of the midfield well and showed positive signs.

Second half - Simon Church - showed good positioning for first two goals, with a good finish for his third. Should give him renewed confidence.
