Making his 75th appearance in the Championship, Steve Sidwell opened the scoring by heading in a simple chance from an Ivar Ingimarsson free kick on 25 minutes. At half time the score was 1-0 Reading.
On 56 minutes, Kevin Doyle was pulled back in the box to win a penalty, which he converted to make it 2-0. The Royals did concede on 59 minutes to a Adam Rooney tap in, but with John Halls stroking in a Stephen Hunt cross 3 minutes later, Reading cruised to a comfortable 3-1 win over Stoke City, and breached the 100 point barrier at the same time.
