Reading Go Top Of The Championship

Reading are surprise Championship leaders in the early season after victory at Millwall made it four wins from six league games. The Royals were firm favourites for relegation at the start of the season
but find themselves top of the pile after Naby Sarr, making his first appearance after signing a four year contract, scored on his debut. Sarr's header after just 14 minutes was enough to win the game for Reading, although we should
have wrapped up the victory after both Hendrick and Long missed chances to double Reading's lead late on. Long looked to have sealed the victory but somehow put his shot wide, while the Millwall keeper was able to save Hendrick's
Sarr's goal was an impressive header after a free-kick from Tom Ince on the left side. Ince continues to impress, as does a very different group of players to last season who seem to have discovered some good form despite many only just arriving at the club this summer. Reading were the better side thoughout with Millwall finding very few opportunities. A tough fixture away at Sheffield United follows, but after a solid start even a defeat will still leave Reading in the right end of the table after seven games.
