A sublime strike from Tyrese Fornah in the twenty-eighth minute was enough to ensure Reading continued their impressive home form so far this season. For much of the game Reading were content to sit back and allow Middlesbrough pass the ball around in midfield and deny them space where it really mattered, in the final third of the pitch. As on Wednesday against Blackburn Rovers, Reading looked more direct and menacing when they attacked than the visitors. Having to rely on basically the same starting eleven for the second time in four days Reading looked understandably weary in the final ten minutes, but showed sufficient resolve to hold on to their slender lead for another clean sheet, and another three points. League tables mean very little after only four matches, but a top three spot is good for morale at any stage of the season.
