Gallery: Royals take the points in battle with Canaries

26 December 2016

Action snaps from our Boxing Day clash with Norwich City

The Royals took all three points from an exciting Boxing Day battle with Norwich at Madejski Stadium. A first half glancing header from Yann Kermorgant gave Reading the lead, before Nelson Oliveira levelled the scores just after the break with a fine strike.

In a frantic couple of minutes Jonny Howson saw red and gave the Royals a penalty when he blocked Kermorgant's header on the line. The resulting spot kick taken by Yann bounced off the crossbar, but Garath McCleary was on hand to power the ball home with a leaping header.

The Royals put the game beyond doubt late on when Substitute Callum Harriott thumped home a sublime angled finish to make the score 3-1.
