Millwall v Reading

Millwall 0-0 Reading

Reading keeper Adam Federici denied in-form striker Steve Morison a hat-trick of chances to frustrate Millwall.

Morison, scorer of five goals in six games, was first denied in the 16th minute by the Australian stopper.

Jimmy Kebe had a volley ruled out for offside for Reading before Federici thwarted Morison when the 27-year-old was through for a one-on-one chance.

Morison missed another opportunity just before half-time, while Jem Karacan almost grabbed a win with a late drive.

However, the Turkey Under-21 international saw his strike pushed on to the post by David Forde.

Millwall made two changes from the side which drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, with Tamika Mkandawire starting in the centre of midfield, while Kevin Lisbie was preferred to Neil Harris up front.

Reading manager Brian McDermott made just one change to his line-up with striker Simon Church replacing Brynjar Gunnarsson.

However, most of the action was in the visitors' penalty area as Millwall pressed for an opener, with Morison looking particularly threatening.

But the Wales international was consistently frustrated by Federici, while the assistant referee's flag curtailed Reading's celebrations when Kebe's superb volley from Jobi McAnuff's crossfield pass was ruled out for offside.
