Bristol City   1 - 0   Reading

Marvin Elliott tries to hold off Readin's' Jobi McAnuff

Bristol City 1-0 Reading

Bristol City won for the first time at Ashton Gate this season but remain at the bottom of the Championship table.

The Robins went into the game with just one league win to their name, but a first-half half-volley from Danny Haynes saw them past Reading.

Former England goalkeeper David James played a large part, frustrating the visitors from Berkshire all night.

The highlight was a superb second-half stop to deny Royals forward Noel Hunt, starting for the first time in a year.

Having lost just one of five away league games before this match, Reading were looking to move into the play-off places with a win.

They started confidently, with Shane Long showing good pace early on but City almost went ahead against the run of play when Albert Adomah's solo run and cross found Jon Stead, but his powerful strike came back off the underside of the bar.

Both sides were competing fiercely, but the hosts edged ahead in the 28th minute when a ball to the far post was headed back across goal by Adomah.

Stead saw his ambitious overhead kick blocked by Matt Mills, but the ball fell kindly for Haynes to hammer home his first goal of the season.

James was then called upon in the second half and showed the class that made him England's number one, tipping the ball to safety from Hunt's header after the Royals had strung together a series of passes for Andy Griffin to cross.
