'It's a massive confidence boost'

FT: Reading 1-0 Leeds

It's a massive win. It's a massive confidence boost. To get a win against Leeds, who we now go above, is great and you can hear it in the crowd.

'It was a tough fight'

FT: Reading 1-0 Leeds

Yann Kermorgant

It was a tough fight in the second half. We knew they'd play a bit more direct and we had to make sure we didn't concede, but we're really happy. Hopefully we'll finish in the top six and then we'll see after that.

Reading 'defended for their lives'

FT: Reading 1-0 Leeds

Mick Gooding

Ex-Reading player/manager on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"Leeds have thrown everything at Reading and every one of those Reading players stood up to it and defended for their lives in that second half."

FULL-TIME

Reading 1-0 Leeds

One final puff on referee Keith Stroud's whistle and the points are Reading's.

If this was indeed a dress rehearsal for the play-off semi-finals it's the Royals who now have the edge.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

And now Garath McCleary has won himself a free-kick too. One minute to go. The home fans are on their feet, they know they're just about there now...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

But, to a massive roar from the home support, Leeds give away a free-kick and Reading can eat up a few more seconds.

Still two minutes to go...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Reading clear the corner but Leeds are back in possession soon enough, sending another ball deep into Royals territory. We're halfway through the added period.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

And they have a corner too.

One chance is all they need. One chance...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

The Royals have a throw-in midway inside the Leeds half on the left-hand side - and they're in no hurry whatsoever.

They give the ball away, though, and so Leeds are back on the offensive...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

But again the delivery doesn't quite cut the mustard and Reading have a goal kick.

There'll be six minutes of added time!

YELLOW CARD

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Now Yann Kermorgant has gone into the book for dissent after giving away a cheap free-kick on halfway.

It's daft from Kermorgant, because Leeds are only sending this in one direction...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Kemar Roofe goes to ground under a challenge from Yann Kermorgant in the penalty area, and the Leeds fans are up appealing for a foul, but the referee isn't interested.

Time's ticking...

Blues looked to be cruising - Zola

Ipswich Town 1-1 Birmingham City

Birmingham City boss Gianfranco Zola said he "didn't see Ipswich scoring" in his side's draw at Portman Road. Mick McCarthy's side levelled when Grant Ward's overhit cross caught goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak out.

"We looked like we were cruising and I honestly didn't see them scoring because we were defending very well," he told BBC WM.

"Tomasz could maybe have done better on the goal but he saved us against Newcastle. It's ok, it's part of the game."

Jonathan Grounds

Ipswich Town 1-1 Birmingham City

Ipswich Town make it nine draws in 12 games as they hit back to deny Birmingham three points at Portman Road.

SUBSTITUTION

Reading 1-0 Leeds

A final throw of the Leeds dice - Kemar Roofe is on for Ronaldo Vieira.

They've gone very, very direct in the last few minutes, but still no joy in front of goal. Yet.

YELLOW CARD

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Danny Williams is yellow carded for climbing all over the back of Chris Wood - a foul which also presents Leeds with another opportunity to chuck the ball into the Reading penalty area.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Another Leeds attack, another Leeds half chance.

It's Ronaldo Vieira with it, attempting to stab the ball in at the far post, but he doesn't connect properly and it's comfortably saved.

Villa stuck at it - Bruce

Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich City

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce was pleased with the battling qualities his side showed in their win over Norwich. The Villans kept a sixth clean sheet in seven matches to move to 10 points off the play-offs.

"They have got some very decent players but we showed some resilience and my goalkeeper (Sam Johnstone) had a very good game," he told BBC WM.

"We were a little bit leggy with players having been on international duty but we stuck at it."

He added: "It would take a few to collapse but you can quite easily go in this division.

"Lets do our own job. Can we go and keep winning and if we keep winning then who knows."

Jonathan Kodjia celebrates his goal for Villa v Norwich

Jonathan Kodjia's brace gives Aston Villa a win over 10-man Norwich City at Villa Park.

Right then - 10 minutes left, one goal in the game, two teams desperately wanting three points to aid their play-off push.

Will there be a sting in the tail? Stick with us to find out!

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Ali Al-Habsi has almost had an absolute shocker there, moving across his goal to field a sighter from Souleymane Doukara but spilling it behind for a corner. If that was on target it would've been absolutely horrible for the Reading goalkeeper.

Again, the subsequent set-piece comes to nothing.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

The officials decide not to take any action at all, as it happens.

Only Liam Cooper will know whether he meant to connect with the head of the floored Reece Oxford, but there's no doubt he does connect.

We may not have heard the last of that one.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

But the set-piece comes to nothing and then Liam Cooper fouls Reece Oxford.

Now, Reading's Tyler Blackett is absolutely furious here - has Cooper put his foot on Oxford's head as he tried to step over him?

The referee and linesmen are in discussion...

Reading 1-0 Leeds

We're into the final 20 minutes at the Madejski Stadium, where Reading are still ahead. They'll leapfrog Leeds in the Championship table if it does stay this way.

The Royals create another decent opportunity through Garath McCleary, but Yann Kermorgant can't guide his cross towards goal.

Straight up the other end of the field, Leeds have themselves a corner...

Town defeat leaves Wagner frustrated

Huddersfield Town 0-1 Burton Albion

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner felt his side were not clinical enough in their defeat by Burton. The third-placed Terriers lost to a last minute goal from Jackson Irvine.

He told BBC Radio Leeds: "We're all frutrated and disappointed. The players tried everything and they worked and they really wanted to get the three points.

"We made some wrong decisions in the final third and we weren't good enough in our offensive situations."

Wagner added: "We have to accept that they worked with their weapons and in the end they got the result.

"It's not the kind of thing I would like to see from my team but they got their result and congratulations to them."

Jackson Irvine

Huddersfield Town 0-1 Burton Albion

Jackson Irvine scores an injury-time goal as Burton beat 10-man promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

And now a third and final change by the hosts, who replace Jordan Obita with Reece Oxford at the back.

Meanwhile, Yann Kermorgant attempts a near-post header but Rob Green comfortably tips it over the crossbar.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Leeds are pressing a good 20 or 30 yards further up the pitch in this second half and it's making such a difference. Reading are still trying to play the ball out from the back, all the while, but only look like playing themselves into trouble.

Jordan Mutch replaces Liam Kelly for Reading, Kavlin Phillips replaces Alfonso Pedraza for Leeds.

Is Royals manager Jaap Stam a worried chap? He may well be...

SUBSTITUTIONS

Reading 1-0 Leeds

A couple of substitutions to tell you about, one for each side.

Souleymane Doukara replaces Hadi Sacko for Leeds, before Lewis Grabban comes on for Roy Beerens for the men in blue and white.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Roy Beerens

This has been such an odd game, in a lot of respects. Long passages of harmless, going-nowhere-in-a-hurry possession and then bang - a couple of great chances in quick succession.

Reading have had the pick of them, make no mistake about that, but Leeds have been improved since half-time and are still well in this match.

Wolves were excellent - Lambert

Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Cardiff City

Wolves boss Paul Lambert was delighted with his side's performance in their win over Cardiff City. The Molineux side have now won four successive games to move clear of relegation danger.

"I thought we were excellent and it was a well-deserved win. Some of the football we played was fantastic," he told BBC WM.

"We're exciting to watch and we've got a lot of flair players going forward."

He added: "We've taken 13 points from 15 and that's really good going. We were playing well before then without getting the results in my opinion. "

Danny Batth

Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Cardiff City

Danny Batth scores twice as Wolves beat Cardiff City to move eight points clear of the Championship relegation zone.

Beerens 'missed the ball'

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Mick Gooding

Ex-Reading player/manager on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"It was a fantastic pass from Yann Kermorgant. Reading are just getting back to the way they are playing in the first half.

"Beerens' first touch looked good but, with his second, he missed the ball!"

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Oh dear, Reading aren't doing themselves any favours here.

Royals midfielder Roy Beerens is in absolutely acres in the penalty area, completely unmarked at the far post, but after bringing the ball under control he completely fluffs his shot and the chance goes begging.

How many more opportunities are they doing to need?

YELLOW CARD

Reading 1-0 Leeds

John Swift is the first man into the book for a foul on Chris Wood, who again touches the ball!

But the set-piece is drifted straight into the arms of the Reading goalkeeper - and, in fact, the referee had spotted a foul too.

They need to be making a bit more of those opportunities, do Leeds.

Clough praises attitude of goalscorer Irvine

Huddersfield Town 0-1 Burton Albion

Burton boss Nigel Clough praised match-winner Jackson Irvine after his side's late win at Huddersfield. The Australia international tapped home in injury time to give the Brewers a surprise victory at the third-placed Terriers.

"He wanted to start today. He's played two games, flown to Iran, flown to Sydney and only got back on Wednesday night," he told BBC Radio Derby.

"It's so difficult because you don't want to leave one of your best players out of the team but he's been tired when he's come back to us without playing.

"The one thing we said is he wouldn't have made that run if he had started the game."

Jackson Irvine

Huddersfield Town 0-1 Burton Albion

Jackson Irvine scores an injury-time goal as Burton beat 10-man promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Even Chris Wood has touched the ball a couple of times since half-time. Here's the evidence...

Chris Wood
Rex Features

Leeds could do with the big man popping up with one of his trademark goals though. Reading, for the record, are one of the 18 he has already scored against in 2016-17.

Reading 1-0 Leeds

The attack fizzles out almost as quickly as it got started, but that's a bit more like it from Garry Monk's men.

It's funny that, for as good as Reading have been, Leeds have still carved out a couple of really good opportunities.

This one is far from over, in other words.

KICK-OFF

Reading 1-0 Leeds

Leeds United, in yellow today, kick off the second half shooting towards their massive travelling contingent of supporters.

They're immediately on the attack too...
