Leroy Lita opened the scoring for the home side, when on 16 minutes he simply slotted home a neat cut back from Glen Little, who had dispossessed a hesitant Nathan Dyer.
Kevin Doyle doubled the score, controlling and drilling home a long clearance from Marcus Hahnemann on 38 minutes. Reading went into half time 2-0 up, which after an uneventful second half, remained the winning score.
