  7. 'It was a tough fight'

    FT: Reading 1-0 Leeds

    Yann Kermorgant
    Quote Message: 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. from Yann Kermorgant Reading goalscorer on Sky Sports

  8. 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."


    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.

  10. Post update

    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...

  11. Post update

    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...

  12. Post update

    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.

  13. Post update

    Reading 1-0 Leeds

    And they have a corner too.

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

  14. Post update

    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...

  15. Post update

    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!


    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...

  17. Post update

    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...

  18. 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."

    Ipswich Town 1-1 Birmingham City

    Jonathan Grounds

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

    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.


    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.
