Torquay   0 - 1   Reading

Torquay 0-1 Reading (aet)

Torquay 0-1 Reading (aet)

Striker Grzegorz Rasiak grabbed a winner in stoppage time of extra time to send Reading through to the second round of the Carling Cup at Plainmoor.

Rasiak claimed the final touch in a goalmouth scramble after Brian Howard's free-kick.

United striker Elliot Benyon came close in the second half of extra time as his angled shot beat Royals keeper Ben Hamer but hit the inside of the post.

Howard went close in normal time, Scott Bevan saving well from two free-kicks.


Torquay manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"I've got a big smile on my face because I've just said to the players, if that's anything to go by, then we're in for a good season.

"We scared the life out of Reading tonight, but we deserved to win the game.

"It was cruel in the end. We got nothing for the extra time, but what a fantastic performance, a brilliant cup-tie and I felt we deserved to win it."

Reading boss Brian McDermott told BBC Berkshire: "That was a war of attrition to say the least and you can see why they haven't conceded a goal in eight games here.

"I'm just delighted that we've got the result here - it's a very, very difficult place. I watched the video of them and I knew we were in for a game and we certainly got one.

"I'd get a few quid on Torquay to win this league because of the way they conduct themselves and they're tough physically."
