Full Time: PNE 2-3 Reading

Despite their best efforts, North End fail to overturn a three goal deficit as Reading win 3-2.

Reading took the lead early on through Lucas Joao, turning the ball home from close range.

He made it two not long after after beating his man and firing the ball into the top corner.

John Swift made it three having played a one two with Joao on the edge of the before coolly finding the back of the net.

Within a minute though PNE had a goal back, Evans laying the ball into Johnson’s path who found the net.

Cameron Archer got the Lilywhites closer to earning something from the grounding, dispatching the ball into the net following a scramble from a corner.

Tom Ince is replaced by Brandon Barker.

Van den Berg is booked for a trip on Swift.

There will be at least five minutes added on at the end of the half.

Van den Berg gets the cross in from the right and Sinclair rises to head towards the far post but it drifts wide of the goal.

Ryan Ledson’s cross from the right is nodded towards the far post by Evans but it is just wide.

Sinclair collects the ball cutting in from the right, he looks to find the far top corner but it’s just over.

Cameron Archer turns the ball home from a yard out from a corner to put PNE just a goal behind!

Junior Hoilett is replaced by Yakou Meite.

Baba Rahman is replaced by Tom McIntyre.
