Reading v Sheffield Utd 01.10.05

After eleven games of the season, Reading were in second spot six points behind the leaders Sheffield Utd, the next team to visit the Madejski Stadium. In this highly competitive top of the table clash, Reading came away victorious with a 2-1 win, thanks to two goals from Brynjar Gunnarsson. The first only after three minutes from a Glen Little corner, and his second an 88th minute headed goal.

One of many thousands of images I captured during the 2005/6 season, the last one above would go into my top ten. Such a contarst between in the background the joy of scoring and celebrating what was to be such an important goal, and in the foreground the disappointment and annoyance of conceding so late in the game, great stuff.
