Reading v Ipswich

Reading 1-0 Ipswich

Reading   1 - 0   Ipswich

Simon Church scored the winner for Reading barely 20 seconds after coming off the bench as they beat Ipswich.

Jason Scotland fired the best chance of the first half wide for the visitors as the game struggled to spark into life.

They were reduced to 10 men in the 52nd minute when Luke Hyam was shown his second yellow card, with Reading's Matt Mills similarly seeing red soon after.

Jem Karacan forced Marton Fulop to save before Church came on and diverted a Karacan shot into the net for a winner.

The Royals were forced to finish the game with nine men after Karacan was injured in the build-up to the goal, but they held on to move up to sixth in the Championship, one place above the Tractor Boys.

Church was only on the pitch because of a late injury to Hal Robson-Kanu, who produced a lively performance up front for Brian McDermott's side.

He caused the visitors' defence problems with his direct running, with one cross fired wide by Jimmy Kebe, before Robson-Kanu's control let him down as he failed to take advantage of Fulop's shaky handling.

Despite Roy Keane sending on both Connor Wickham and Reggie Lambe early on in the second half, Ipswich failed to really test Adam Federici and the Royals always looked the likelier winners.
