Gallery: Reading seal third spot at the Pirelli!

7 May 2017

Snaps from this Sunday lunchtime's clash with Burton at the Pirelli

The Royals put four past the Brewers in an exciting clash at the Pirelli Stadium on the final day of the regular season.

Reading were ahead after just three minutes when Joeseph Mendes slammed home his finish from close range after bringing the ball under control in the Burton box. It didn't take the Royals long to add to their lead when Jordan Obita netted with a spectacular curing effort from outside the area.

The Royals went into the break 2-0 up, with Yann Kermorgant making it three midway through the second-half. A fine move down the left flank saw Roy Beerens pick-out the frontman, who passed his finish into the bottom right-hand corner for his 18th of the season.

In a very open second period, Burton pulled two back in quick succession through Ben Turner and Cauley Woodrow, but Lewis Grabban's late strike from close range, sealed the win for the Royals and third place in the process.
