  1. Not a great match, but a vital win for Reading. West Ham were frustratingly lacklustre, but Brian McDermott will care not one jot. I hope that you have enjoyed the coverage, and give me follow on the Twitter machine @danielstorey85

  2. 90+4

    Move into the last minute, the ball kept in the corner.

  3. 90+2

    West Ham just can't get the ball forward in the last moments here

  4. 90+1

    More reaction from O'Brien, as the game moves into four minutes of injury time

  5. 90

    Robson-Kanu does well to earn his side a corner, which his side wll take no rush in taking

  6. 88

    That sums up West Ham's afternoon. Collison overuns the ball and it dribbles out for a goal kick.

  7. 87

    Noel Hunt does well to earn a free kick, and Reading are doing nothing but keep the ball in the corner now

  8. 86

    A promising breakaway is ruined by poor decision-making from Karacan. Must get his head up there

  9. 86

    That really was a poor miss from Vaz Te. West Ham won't get a better chance

  10. 85

    Reading win their first corner of the match, and it is overhit

  11. 84

    Vaz Te is completely unmarked, and somehow heads wide from three yards. A dreadful miss

  12. 83

    Great work from Cole to hold the ball up and get a free kick

  13. 82

    As Reading break, Nolan brings down Robson-Kanu and gets the seventh booking of the game. Nolan will now be suspended for the game against Norwich

  14. 81

    After a cross from Vaz Te, fantastic defending from Gunter to stop Maiga scoring.

  15. 80

    Noble replaced by Maiga

  16. 79

    Finally Reading get out of defence and enjoy some possession in the West Ham half, it is ended with a loose challenge by Harte, who is booked

  17. 78

    Reading are very much in shutdown mode, all players back to defend and looking to take time over set pieces. Can't really blame them too much

  18. 76

    Kebe is replaced, often frustrating today. He is replaced by Robson-Kanu

  19. 75

    Noble again with the delivery, and Sam Allardyce will be so frustrated. Surely his side practice that all day long?

  20. 74

    Once again the delivery hits the first man
