Reading v Coventry 14.01.06

Returning to Championship action, Reading's next opponents at the Madejski were Coventry City. Captained by ex-royal Adie Williams, Coventry were in the lower half of the table, a massive 37 points behind Reading.

At half time the score was 0-0, Williams picking up a yellow card on 42 minutes.

Within one minute of the restart, Dave Kitson broke the deadlock, clipping the ball over the City goal keeper Martin Fulop, having been put through by an accurate pass from Bobby Convey. At the other end of the pitch, Marcus Hahnemann was making some incredible saves to keep the Royals ahead. After the game Steve Coppell praised Hahnemann saying "he was the biggest factor in our victory, making four top-quality saves".

The score remained 1-0, until the 78th minute when Dave Kitson scored his second goal of the game, tapping in after Stephen Hunt's clever footwork set him up with an easy goal. The final score ended up at 2-0, keeping the Royals 9 points ahead od seconded placed Sheffield Utd.
