A bit end-to-end now; Akpan shoots into the keepers arms after Wolves were worrying Reading around their area. The away team come up the other end, and a corner sees a shot go comfortably wide. 5 to go to H/T.
Reading are pressing high, winning the ball, and being comfortable in possession "a fautless performance" says the Sky Sports commentator. Wolves playmaker McDonald is being strangled whenever he gets on the ball.
CLOSE: Murray ('23)
Glenn Murray turns a defender, and it seemed like a handball shout- until Murray powers towards goal. Cox offers a pass into a one-on-one but Murray is straight at goal and fires just wide from 25 yards.
That's Hector's first goal for the club! Wolves respond with a corner and Reading settle back into a comfortable stroll.
GOAL: 1-0 Reading (Hector '18)
An Obita corner goes short to Norwood, who lays back to Obita. The left-back gets crowded and a simple pass to Norwood gives him the entire South-West corner to take his time and pick a cross to the near-post. That's where Michael Hector heads home into the bottom corner, great stuff- sloppy from Wolves.
Reading: Federici, Obita, Pearce, Hector, Gunter, Akpan, Norwood, Taylor, Blackman, Cox, Murray
Subs: Andersen, Cooper, Kuhl, Pogrebnyak, Mackie, Long, Guthrie
