With still 4 games to play in 2005, Reading travelled up the M4 to London to take on Millwall at the New Den. A win here would extend Reading's consecutive league wins to eight.
Bottom of the table Millwall conceded the first goal in the 40th minute, when Steve Sidwell smashed homed a blistering shot from 15 yards, pass a static Lion's keeper Colin Doyle.
Kevin Doyles pace upfront was causing havoc in the Millwall defence, so much so that Tony Craig was forced to manhandle Doyle in the penalty area, and was subsequently sent off by referee Mr Hall. Dave Kitson stepped up to take the resulting penalty but it was saved.
Kevin Doyle wrapped up the points for Reading by finishing off a Nicky Shorey pass, neatly placing the ball beyond the reach of Doyle in the Millwall goal. Millwall 0-2 Reading.
This away win gave the Royals 59 points, still leading the table, 6 points ahead of Sheffield Utd.
