West Brom   2 - 3   Reading

Sigurdsson celebrates his fabulous winner for Reading at West Brom

Gylfi Sigurdsson's extra-time cracker completed a dramatic comeback which put Reading into the FA Cup quarter-finals at the expense of West Brom.

The Baggies took an early lead when Robert Koren tapped in a rebound, only for Jimmy Kebe to knock in a leveller.

Koren again put West Brom ahead thanks to an Adam Federici mistake, but Brian Howard's strike sent it to extra-time.

Sigurdsson curled in superbly from 25 yards to win it and there was a melee at the end, with Jobi McAnuff sent off.

The red card was brandished after the final whistle, with players, stewards and officials all involved as McAnuff was shown red by referee Lee Mason for violent conduct.

It was a humdinger of an FA Cup tie with so many twists and turns and was a pity only 13,985 turned up at The Hawthorns to watch.

The victory means the Royals, who are 17 places below West Brom in the Championship, will host Aston Villa in their first FA Cup quarter-final for 83 years on Sunday 7 March.

Sigurdsson, the hero, had already come close from long-range with Reading 2-1 behind in the second half, but his 25-yarder had come crashing back off the crossbar.

The Icelandic Under-21 star had also fired a fine chance straight at Scott Carson, but Howard popped up three minutes into stoppages to spare his and Federici's blushes and take it to extra-time.

Sigurdsson got it right in the 95th minute and Reading held on to add West Brom to Liverpool and Burnley on their list of scalps in the FA Cup this season.


West Bromwich Albion head coach Roberto Di Matteo:
"I'm destroyed. We were in the driving seat. It wasn't a dangerous situation for Reading's late equaliser. We just needed to clear the ball.

"We put a lot of effort in and we worked very hard to win the game, then we come away with nothing.

"We just didn't defend the second and third goals, we gave them gifts."

Reading boss Brian McDermott:
"I'm proud of all the players.

"It was a great night, a fantastic Cup tie. You talk about the FA Cup losing its shine but you saw what that meant to two sets of players and supporters.

"It was a fantastic night for everybody in a Reading shirt."
