Reading finally overcame an undisciplined rabble of a Derby side which imploded following Reading's second, and superbly created, goal from Joao. The tone of the game was set in a feisty opening when Meite was bundled over in the box by Malone when put through on goal by Joao's astute pass. Malone was correctly shown a red card and Charlie Adam converted the penalty emphatically. County struggling to win away from home were a goal down and reduced to ten men within the opening four minutes. Obviously the odds were stacked heavily in favour of a Reading win, but it was a far from comfortable win for the Royals.
