Pictures of the action as Reading faced Aston Villa at Madejski Stadium

The Royals suffered only their first home defeat of the season after a late penalty from Jordan Ayew stole the points for the visitors. After falling behind to a first half strike from Jonathan Kodjia the Royals forced their way back into the game after Garath McCleary was fouled in the Villa box. Danny Williams penalty was saved but Yann Kermorgant headed powerfully to level.

Ayew's penalty in the 89th minute saw the Villans take victory after he was tripped whilst attempting a shot.
