Reading made it back-to-back defeats for the second time this season, following up a 2-0 loss to Charlton Athletic by being beaten 1-0 at Middlesbrough. The home side scored a slightly fortuitous goal via a free-kick from the right that squirmed in past Rafael on the hour mark.
The big issue from Reading’s point of view was the lack of cutting edge. Jose Gomes’ side had plenty of shots and good goal-scoring opportunities but were unable to take their chances. Catch up with how the game went with all our match coverage - it’s collected right here in this stream.
