Plymouth 0-2 Reading
Reading stretched their lead in the Championship thanks to goals from Glen Little and Kevin Doyle.

Plymouth are the only team to have beaten the Royals this season but they fell behind after 20 minutes when Little chipped keeper Romain Larrieu.

Reading sealed victory 12 minutes after half-time when Leroy Lita provided a perfect ball for Doyle to tap in.

Plymouth's best chances fell to Nick Chadwick, who hit the bar as the hosts tried to recover.

  • Plymouth manager Tony Pulis:

    "The goals came from situations on the edge of their box and they've got pace that causes problems," he said.

    "We were desperately disappointed to come in at the break 1-0 down and their second goal knocked the wind out of us and that killed the game.

    "Nick Chadwick could have had three but I'm just pleased he's getting into scoring positions."

  • Reading manager Steve Coppell on the quality and timing of Glenn Little's goal:

    "It was a terrific individual goal amongst a scrappy first 45 minutes, the goal shone out like a beacon.

    "It was a good piece of skill from Nick Chadwick to check back inside and Marcus Hahnemann, who's been critical here for us, made another key save.

    "It could well be the game turned on that. If they had scored then it might have been a different fixture."
