  • FULL-TIME: Stoke record their first victory of the year thanks to a hard-earned 2-1 win against plucky Reading at the Britannia Stadium. Robert Huth headed the hosts ahead with a close-range header before Cameron Jerome doubled the advantage after 81 minutes with a sublime right-foot strike. However, the Royals pulled one back just two minutes later thanks to Adrian Mariappa's first goal for the club, but Tony Pulis' men held on for the points.

  • Adam Le Fondre goes over and claims a penalty, but referee Michael Oliver gives nothing.

    90+4
  • Reading break, but Cameron Jerome comes back to make a solid challenge.

    90+3
  • Noel Hunt fouls Steven Nzonzi and that gets a hugh cheer from the home supporters.

    90+1
  • YELLOW CARD: There will be FOUR ADDED minutes of stoppage time as Geoff Cameron is booked for a foul on Jimmy Kebe.

    90
  • Reading have scored the highest proportion of goals in the final 15 minutes of games (41%) and the most in total in that period (13). They've done it again today, but can they grab an equaliser?

    89
  • SUBSTITUTION: Geoff Cameron has come on for Stoke in place of Michael Kightly.

    87
  • Ian Harte's left-foot delivery is met at the near post by Adrian Mariappa ahead of Glenn Whelan to score his first goal for the club and hand the visitors a lifeline.

  • GOAL!!! ADRIAN MARIAPPA

    85
  • Reading are not giving up that easily and they win themselves a corner down the right.

    84
  • What a wonderful finish by the substitute as the ball is headed up in the air and Cameron Jerome holds off Alex Pearce before lashing his right-foot effort into the far corner past a helpless Adam Federici.

  • GOAL!!! CAMERON JEROME

    82
  • SUBSTITUTION: Reading change and Noel Hunt comes on for Pavel Pogrebnyak.

    80
  • POOR PASS! Reading break three against one, but Jimmy Kebe's pass to Pavel Pogrebnyak is short and that allows Stoke to get men back and make the block.

    79
  • Adrian Mariappa heads away after Kenwyne Jones looked to direct his header towards goal.

    78
  • Pavel Pogrebnyak tumbles to the floor as he collides with Robert Huth and Michael Oliver opts to wave play on.

    77
  • The ball does end up in the Stoke net from Adam Le Fondre, but referee Michael Oliver had already blown his whistle for a handball by Pavel Pogrebnyak.

    75
  • Meanwhile, Adam Le Fondre almost nips in after Reading launch the ball into the box, but Asmir Begovic is out in a flash.

    74
  • SUBSTITUTION: Garath McCleary replaces Jobi McAnuff for Reading.
