#Madejski500 Countdown | 4️⃣: Reading 3-2 WBA (12 January 2013)

Your fourth best fixture on home turf...

19 December 2017

An inauspicious-looking encounter at Madejski Stadium... rightly amongst your favourites because of the high drama that ensued as we snatched a win from the jaws of defeat!

Goals either side of the break by an on-fire Romelu Lukaku - who Manchester United reportedly splashed £75 million on in the summer - put visitors West Bromwich Albion into a commanding 2-0 lead.

And even when Jimmy Kebe headed in eight minutes from time, it looked like it would be just a consolation for the Royals.

But then Kebe won a spot-kick, which Adam Le Fondre converted, which it seemed would give Reading a share of the points in unlikely style.

They went one better instead.  Incredible scenes in the stands when Pavel Pogrebnyak latched onto a cushioned ball and lifted over Ben Foster to steal a victory in the final throes... of the Madejski Stadium's most memorable moments as a shirtless BFR peeled off towards the corner flag!  Watch it again above...

The countdown continues on Wednesday when we reveal the third-best game, as voted for by our supporters.

Be here this Saturday for our 500th Madejski Stadium match as we take on the Brewers - it's £5 for all supporters, anywhere in the stadium.
