Derby   2 - 1   Reading

Derby 2-1 Reading

Derby 2-1 Reading

Rob Hulse's winner gave Derby a much-needed victory over fellow Championship strugglers Reading.

After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead on 56 minutes when Gylfi Sigurdsson slid a low shot off the post beyond Stephen Bywater.

Derby hit back four minutes later when Paul Green tapped in from six yards following Gary Teale's cross.

And Hulse grabbed the three points with his sixth goal of the season from close range 17 minutes from full-time.


Derby manager Nigel Clough:

"We showed character but we have to because we make it so difficult for ourselves at times.

"At 0-0 there was nothing in the game and we have probably had more of the play in the first half. But then we give away a very soft goal when we are trying to play out from the back.

"But to come back again from a goal down at home is encouraging and once we equalised I think everyone in the ground believed we would go on and win."

Reading manager Brendan Rodgers:
"We are very disappointed with the result. We spoke afterwards and our game management when we were 1-0 up was disappointing.

"It's hard to understand because we have clearly picked up in the last three or four games and achieved targets we set ourselves and we looked comfortable.

"We looked as though we could go on and score more goals but then we let in two soft goals which was disappointing from our point of view."
