KENYA BROWN - Monday, November 28, 2016
It was a very quiet weekend for the Americans in the EPL, but in the Championship Danny Williams and Reading continued their winning run to put themselves in the hunt for promotion.
Reading 2-1 Bristol City
Two early first half goals were enough to help Reading win their fifth consecutive game and maintain their pursuit of the automatic promotion places.
Williams started in the midfield for the Royals and played the entire game.
The home side scored their first goal on the day in the 13th minute through Garath McCleary. After a call for a penalty following Hordur Magnusson's foul on Dominic Samuel, McCleary stepped up to take the shot, but it was saved by Bristol goalkeeper Frank Fielding. However, the ball came right back to the feet of the forward and he made sure his second effort hit the back of the net.
Roy Beerens scored Reading's second six minutes later when he volleyed in his shot off a pass from teammate Chris Gunter.
Bristol pushed hard to get back into the game, but Gary O'Neil's goal in the 87th minute was the only one they could salvage as the Royals continued their hot streak.
The win keeps Reading in third place in the Championship standings with 34 points.
