The Royals certainly found their feet in a thrilling second half against Crystal Palace at Madejski Stadium. The faithful fans were treated to two cracking goals by the star forward pairing of Adam Le Fondre & Pavel Pogrebnyak - both finding the net in a very short space of time.
Both goals are available to view on Reading FC Player
McCleary assisted Pogrebnyak to his first goal in a Reading shirt and it is well worth a watch - a confident left-footed stab that had no trouble finding the back of the net. A good surging move from the centre initiated by Mikele Leigertwood lead to a lovely cross by Hal Robson-Kanu on the left. Le Fondre smoothly slid in and guided the ball home - but this description won't quite do it justice so take a look at the video
now with full replays and live commentary.
