  • The referee brings the game to an end and Wigan have won it 3-2 thanks to Jordi Gomez's superb hat-trick after a thrilling game at the DW Stadium.

  • GOAL: Gomez completes his hat-trick as Kone picks out the midfielder's run into the box and the Spaniard fires the ball home past Federici.

  • There will be three minutes of added time at the end of the 90 minutes.

  • Figueora's cross towards Di Santo is just too long and it runs out of play.

  • Shorey's free-kick is deep to the far post, but Morrison can't get his header on target.

  • Good run from McCleary wins Reading a free-kick wide on the right. Positive play from the winger.

  • McCleary tries his luck from the edge of the box, but his weak effort is easily saved by Al Habsi.

  • Reading also make a change as former Wigan man Roberts is replaced by Pogrebnyak.

  • Wigan make their final change as McArthur comes on for Jones.

  • Le Fondre picks up a knock after being caught on the head by Figueora after a high challenge from the Wigan defender.

  • Who can go on and win from here? Wigan are 3/1 favourites with Reading 6/1.

  • Wigan go close to restoring their lead as Gomez in search of his hat-trick cleared off the line by the retreating Morrison. Great defending from the Reading stopper.

  • GOAL: Reading draw level and what a mistake by Al Habsi. He makes a terrible blunder in trying to gather a looping ball on his line, but he only manages to knock it onto the crossbar and off his hands into the net.

  • The impressive Beausejour has a shot from the edge of the box which is well saved by Federici.

  • Good run from McCleary down the right and he pulls the ball back for Le Fondre who hits his shot over the crossbar.

  • Le Fondre tees up McAnuff for a shot inside the box, but his rising effort goes well over the crossbar.

  • The ball breaks to Di Santo on the edge of the box and he tries to curl his shot from the left in at the far post, but his effort flies well wide of the target.

  • McCleary comes on for Tabb in Reading's first change of the game.

  • Kone races clear of the Reading defence, but Gorkss stands up to divert his shot behind for a corner.

  • Reading work a short corner, but Shorey's final cross is poor and cleared by Jones.
