They gifted the home side the lead after 32 minutes with an own goal from Nathan Baker as he sliced in Jobi McAnuff's cross.But just a minute later Christian Benteke levelled from close-range before Gabby Agbonlahor won the game on the stroke of half-time with a rasping left-foot finish.

  • Nick Blackman goes over in the box and claims a penalty, but nothing is given.

  • Reading win a free-kick on halfway and everybody will pile forward for this.
