Reading   5 - 1   Burton Albion

Burton's debut in the Carling Cup was one to forget as Brendan Rodgers recorded his first win as Reading manager in emphatic style.

Reading went 3-0 up inside 10 minutes. David Mooney shot into the top corner and Nicholas Bignall slotted in before rounding the keeper for his second.

Gylfi Sigurdsson smashed in a 35-yard shot before Jimmy Phillips pulled a goal back with a half-volley.

Reading completed the rout when Mooney tapped in his second from a rebound.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:

"They were excellent their movement and organisation was excellent.

"But this is Cup football, they are two leagues above us and we can't be too upset with the result."
