The opening goal came directly from a save from Marcus Hahnemann, who immeadiately launched a counter attack via Kevin Doyle. Glen Whelan intercepted a cross from Doyle ahead of Dave Kitson, but only managed to slice the ball pass David Lucas in the Sheffield goal. 1-0 to the Royals after 38 minutes.
On 64 minutes Glen Little picked out Dave Kitson in the box who drove the ball low under the Sheffield keeper to make it 2-0. At full time Reading were still second in the Championship on 38 points, 3 points behind Sheffield Utd, but now significantly 9 points ahead of third place Watford.
