#Madejski500 Countdown | 5️⃣: Reading 1-0 Fulham (16 May 2017)

The fifth greatest game, as voted by you!

18 December 2017

You've voted in your numbers, and this week we'll be revealing the five greatest games ever seen at Madejski Stadium in the eyes of the supporters! And the fifth-highest scoring came as recently as last season, when we booked a place at Wembley...

... and it didn't matter how we did it; it was all about the result.  But that's not to take away the nature of the performance either!

It had grit, panache, and importantly, it included a Yann Kermorgant spot-kick which settled matters early in the second half.

The Royals went into the game level-pegging after a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage; a sole goal decided matters in front of a packed Madejski crowd on the return.  It was a dangling arm by Tomas Kalas which gifted the Frenchman the chance to strike from 12 yards.

It needed some stout defending from everyone in the squad to see the team over the line, including a few top stops from the last line of defence Ali Al-Habsi.

It was a great night under the lights at Madejski Stadium... and takes a worthy place in your top five!

By way of reminder, take a look at the video above...

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.
