West Brom U18s 0
The Royals Academy prepared for Wednesday night's FA Youth Cup last 16 clash by defeating West Bromwich Albion 2-0 at Hogwood Park on Saturday morning.
Striker Harry Cardwell bagged the first goal of the game shortly before half time as David Dodds' men took control of the Barclays U18 Premier League match.
The former Hull City man then turned provider, as his dangerous cross was inadvertently put in to the net by a Baggies defender.
Reading: Ward; Watson (McLennan 60), Owusu, Dickie, Hyam (C); Jeffrey, Ofori (Sheppard 75), Shaughnessy, Husin; Vastsuk, Cardwell.
