It may not have counted for anything in the end, but what a phenomenal strike this was from Garath McCleary.
With Burnley 2-1 up against the Royals at Madejski Stadium on the final day of the Sky Bet Championship season, the former Nottingham Forest man watched a looping ball carefully onto his right foot, and unleashed an unstoppable rifle into the back of the net to send the Reading faithful wild - coming in at number five of our ten 2013/14 moments to remember.
We won 5-4 on spot kicks, but that doesn't tell anything like the full story of an amazing match.
Reading led 2-0 but were pegged back on 88 minutes, and then trailed 4-2 only to score twice in the final three minutes of extra time.
We then scored all five of our penalties, with De'Jaune Taylor-Crossdale stroking home the decisive spot kick to send our players, staff and supporters wild on a great evening.
It really was an incredible night, with drama, quality, sheers guts and determination, and first and foremost our youngsters are through to the last four for the first time ever - a quite remarkable achievement.
