Youngster bags his first for the Royals
The 19-year-old Academy product slammed home the winner at the City Ground in a dramatic encounter with Nottingham Forest, and was all smiles as he spoke to the press after the game.
"It felt good to get the winning goal, it was just a great feeling," said Obita.
"I'm really proud. At the start of the season I didn't expect to play as many games as this, but I think I've shown the manager what I can do. We wanted to show the fans who traveled up on Friday how good we were - we want to push for promotion, and keep getting better and better."
Still a teenager, Obita has now scored goals for four different clubs - including in League Two, League One and the Championship. He previously found the net in loan spells with Portsmouth and Gillingham, and of course scored a noteable FA Cup goal for Oldham against Everton earlier this year. Friday was his sixth career goal in total.
"I find I tend to go on a run of goals after I get my first, which I'm hoping happens now. That's what I want to do - I want to score goals for this club. I'm going to treasure my match shirt from Friday, nobody will take it off me - that'll go in a frame!"
