Gallery: Royals knock Saints from Checkatrade Trophy

22 December 2016

Snaps of the action from St Mary's as Reading win on penalties

The Royals progressed to the next round of the Checkatrade Trophy on Wednesday evening setting up a tie with Yeovil Town after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Southampton. Reading went behind in the first period when Lloyd Isgrove finished decisively after capitalising on a loose pass.

In the second half Reading were much improved and defender Niall Keown headed the equaliser soon after the restart. The scores remained level, taking the game to a tense penalty shootout on the South Coast.

After two saves early on in the shootout from Royals stopper Anssi Jaakkola, Reading scored all but one of their penalties, with Yakou Meite burying the winning kick to the delight of his teammates!
